The effective operation of building services control systems is highly dependent on proper commissioning. Commissioning enables the design to be fully realised, delivering a building with services which are far more likely to work as designed, therefore delivering significant improvements in the performance of buildings. Automatic control systems have evolved dramatically over the last decade.
CIBSE's Commissioning Code C: Automatic controls presents current standards of good commissioning practice in the form of recommendations and guidance. It provides a comprehensive up-to-date package of information. The new Code is equally applicable to new-build and retrofit applications.
