b) independent of design and construction team (may be employed by them) may also be empl/consult of owner
c)reports directly to owner
d)may work for design team on projects <50KKssf.
2. Owner documents OPR design team documents the BOD.
3. Commissioning requirements in CDs
4. Dev & implement a commissioning plan.
5. Verify system performance and installation.
6. Complete a summary report
EA

What are the main differences between Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning?
1. CxA : in p1FC this person may be an employee of the projects design and CA (though independent from the work) and may be on the team for projects <50k - in c3EC, irrespective of project size, may only be contracted through the owner or design team.
2. OPR and BOD: in c3FC the CxA must conduct a review of the documents prior to mid CD.
3. Submittals: in c3FC the CxA must review contractor submittals for compliance with OPR and BOD.
4. Systems Manual. Any member of the team must create one.
5. Verification: Not only must installation and performance be verified, BUT ALSO training.
6. Post Occupancy: CxA must review operations w/ O&M staff 10mos after substantial completion.
EA

What are the requirements of EAc2
EA Credit 2: On-Site Renewable Energy

Use on-site renewable energy systems to offset building energy cost. Calculate project
performance by expressing the energy produced by the renewable systems as a percentage of the
building annual energy cost and using the table below to determine the number of points
achieved.
Use the building annual energy cost calculated in EA Credit 1 or use the Department of Energy
(DOE) Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) database to determine the
estimated electricity use. (Table of use for different building types is provided in the Reference
Guide.)
