As the commissioning authority, TLC monitored the installation of HVAC systems, air distribution systems, electrical systems and plumbing systems throughout the construction process to confirm that all access requirements were maintained and equipment connections were correctly installed. Functional performance testing began with the test and balance report review/ verification. HVAC functional performance testing included verification of the operation of the air distribution systems, control systems, HVAC systems, along with electrical, lighting, plumbing, and fire alarm smoke control interface with HVAC systems. The commissioning issues log and field reports were used to document commissioning issues. TLC field representatives tracked the resolution progress of each issue to assure successful installation and operation. The systems were tested in both summer and winter seasons to verify proper operation with fluctuating temperatures.
