Common Cx roadblocks

There are several mistakes a commissioning agent can make that will create roadblocks in the commissioning process.

06/22/2014


  • Failure to engage the Cx agent early in the project

  • Failure to identify engineering roles

  • Failure to get schedule buy-in from the contractor to align the Cx schedule with construction schedule/delivery date

  • Failure to validate scripts from all parties

  • Lack of experience with current technologies (which might cause confusion in procedure/scripts, resulting in unanticipated downtime and affecting the construction schedule).
