A Commissionability is a pre-installation phase review of the engineering drawings and or shop drawings to determine if the engineering systems can be properly commissioned, and if not, what remedial work, corrective action, measures, or procedures are required.

Trying to resolve T&C difficulties after the plant is installed is time consuming and very expensive process, potential causing delays, creating additional pressure for 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 at pre-installation stage.

A word about ASHRAE 0 design review, ignore it.

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 Report

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

Regarding submittals, US companies providing equipment are ahead of the game, most manufacturers provide the submittals on their web site! Elsewhere, and here is Asia, submittals seem to be treated as top secret documents, rarely seen in public.

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

Experience is key, because the commissionability review often happens before the contractors equipment schedule is finalised, therefore the reviewer needs to know the potential problems and solutions without referencing manufacturer data.

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, includes commissioning.

Conducting commissionability analysis is designed to avoid critical path delays.

Our commissionability analysis identifies those problems and obstacles on the drawing board, that avoids delay, its cheaper and faster to change the drawings than change installed work.
