Commissionability is the method to examine the design stage engineering drawings or shop drawings to determine if the engineering systems installed in the building can be properly commissioned, and if not, what remedial work, measures or procedures are required.


Trying to resolve T&C difficulties after installation is complete is both time consuming and very expensive, creating additional pressure for faster completion and potential more shortcuts.

Obstacles preventing a smooth T&C process can be solved on drawing board months before the commencement of the physical T&C process by conducting commissionability study. However, the full range of knowledge and experience is needed to be able conduct such studies.

Its important, particularly for hotels built before the hotelier management contract is signed, to conduct commissionability study providing confidence that T&C is properly addressed anad managed before installation work starts.

Commissionability Study and Report

Commissionability is the term used for a comprehensive desktop review of the contract documents including the shop drawings to ensure that the systems to be installed are capable of being commissioned efficiency and effectively, and therefore reducing the risk of any last minute T&C surprises that could cause a dispute and or delay the project.

Can it be commissioned?

Kelcroft's expertise and experience, gained over three continents including Europe and Asia, provides the knowlegde to prepare a a detail commissionability review and reporting findings, with solutions in engineering language that both architects and engineers can understand.

Experience is key, because the commissionability review "should" happen before the equipment schedule is finalised, which is advantagous, because once the equipment is arrived on site changes can be expensive.

Commissionable Systems
Can the MEP Systems be Commissioned?

CIBSE commissioning code defines a commissionable system as a system that can be commissioned using CIBSE Commissioning Code M.

The core problem is that typically commissioning problems only emerge after commencement of commissioning work, it sits on the critical path, one of the final activities before handover.

Near the end of the project, its highly likely that any float has already been used, and any delay that impacts the completion becomes super critical item, and that includes commissioning.

Conducting commissionability analysis is designed to avoid critical path delays.
