A Practical Guide for
Commissioning
Existing Buildings

For the most part, building commissioning is a term associated with new construction projects as a process of ensuring that new buildings and their systems perform as designed. In the late 1980's, as commissioning principles were being applied to existing buildings more and more often, also known as retrocommissioning, this guide was developed to explain the benefits and how-to's of retrocommissioning projects. Report number ORNL/TM-1999/34 (May 1999) was prepared by staff of Portland Energy Conservation, Inc. and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
