  • Provide design review through-out most phases (Design Development and Construction Documents) of design
  • Develop and maintain the building enclosure commissioning plan
  • Provide the project’s building enclosure commissioning specifications during the design phase including laboratory and field testing procedures for building enclosure systems
  • Perform field monitoring and conduct performance verification testing of building enclosure systems during the construction phase of the project
  • Review operations and maintenance manuals for building enclosure systems
