Value engineering is often guilty of cutting features needed for reliability, but what if the whole project reviewed were unnecessary? Commissioning is showing that traditional design approaches often treat symptoms rather than provide cures. Using an investigative mind-set, owners can share diagnostic insights with their design team that produce fresh ideas, cut costs, and improve project outcomes. This session will share practical methods for owners and consultants to maximize value by applying commissioning principles early in design.
Evaluate why business-as-usual produces costly fixes that fail to address root problems
Explore a large hospital’s self-performed approach to improve design with in situ testing
Examine a small hospital's team approach to debunk the mystery of a chilled water capacity shortage
