LEED Commissioning Service
What is LEED Commissioning?
LEED commissioning is a process that helps ensure that a building’s energy systems are designed, installed, and operated as intended. The commissioning process begins during the design phase and continues through construction and occupancy.
The goal of LEED commissioning is to optimize a building’s energy performance by ensuring that its mechanical, electrical, and control systems are operating as intended. Once these systems are up and running, the building’s staff can fine-tune them to further improve efficiency.
A LEED commissioning agent works with the project team to ensure that the building’s energy systems meet the owner’s objectives. The commissioning agent also develops detailed test procedures and coordinates testing activities.
During construction, the agent monitors progress and reviews documentation to verify that the work is being done according to the approved plans. After commissioned systems are put into operation, the agent verifies that they are performing as intended.
An important part of LEED commissioning is creating a “commissioning plan.” This document spells out the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved in the commissioning process, as well as the schedule and budget for commissioning activities. Commissioning plans vary in scope and complexity, depending on the size and type of project.
Introduction to Selva Group
As energy prices continue to rise, organizations are looking for ways to decrease their energy consumption and operating costs. One way to do this is to implement more efficient lighting systems. However, another way to achieve greater efficiency is through LEED commissioning services.
LEED commissioning is the process of verifying and documenting that a building’s systems and components operate according to the design intent. This process can help identify opportunities for system improvements and verify that equipment is installed correctly and functioning as intended.
Selva Group offers LEED commissioning services in the UAE that can help organizations maximize their building efficiency. Our team of certified commissioning agents has experience working on a variety of projects, both small and large. We can tailor our services to meet your specific needs and goals.
Some of the benefits of LEED commissioning include:

What is the Process for Obtaining LEED Certification?
To obtain LEED certification, a building must go through a comprehensive commissioning process that assesses all aspects of the structure and ensures that it meets strict standards for energy efficiency and sustainability.
The process begins with an initial assessment of the building, followed by the development of a customized commissioning plan. This plan is then implemented by a team of certified professionals who conduct regular testing and monitoring to ensure that the building meets all LEED requirements.
Once the commissioning process is complete, the building can then apply for official LEED certification.
Understanding Building Performance and Efficiency Review
As energy prices continue to rise, it is becoming increasingly important for building owners and operators to maximize the efficiency of their buildings. LEED-certified commissioning services can help to ensure that a building is designed and operated to achieve its maximum potential efficiency.
The first step in maximizing the efficiency of a building is understanding how the building performs. A building performance review assesses the energy use of the building and identifies opportunities for improvement.
This review considers factors such as the design of the building, the operating schedule, and the type of occupants. Once the performance of the building has been assessed, measures can be taken to improve efficiency.
These measures may include changes to the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, lighting system, or other mechanical systems. Additionally, operational changes such as modifying the occupancy schedule or adjusting set points can also lead to significant improvements in efficiency.
Implementing these measures can result in significant reductions in energy consumption and costs. In addition, many of these measures also have positive impacts on indoor air quality and comfort levels. As a result, commissioning services can provide significant benefits for both people and businesses.
