The first edition of CSA Z5000-18 Building Commissioning for Energy Using Systems is now available for purchase.
This new standard provides a comprehensive, integrated, consistent, and managed process to monitor building energy and domestic water use through the commissioning of the monitoring system. Commissioning buildings aims to optimize energy-use and thereby reduce operating costs, and is important to the post-design and post-occupancy process.
CSA Z5000-18 allows users to reconcile and verify the in-operation performance which is required by the owner’s project requirements (OPR), voluntary green building programs, or the legislated energy efficiency required by local authorities. The intended users of this Standard include professionals designing and commissioning new buildings, building owners, metering and monitoring design contractors, building automation system vendors, and stakeholders who have an interest in building performance or related quality assurance.
Architectural Institute of British Columbia contributed to this new standard through participation on the subcommittee which developed CSA Z5000-18.
