The Importance of Building Commissioning

It’s exciting having a new building created for you or even choosing to buy a building that has just been constructed. There is something special about being the first person to use the premises!

However, amongst the excitement, it is essential that you undertake some basic checks, this will help to ensure the building you’re acquiring is as good as it looks.

Building Commissioning
It’s surprising to find that the commissioning building is a fairly recent concept. You wouldn’t consider purchasing many items unless you knew they had been commissioned and were ready for the job they’re supposed to do.

There are many different ways to commission a building but the emphasis must be on non-destructive methods, such as magnetic particle testing. After all, if you destroy the building there is little point in testing it.

Testing methods that can ‘see-through’ the walls will ascertain that the structure has been built correctly. This doesn’t just have an impact on the safety of the building. It will also have a direct impact on the reputation of the builders.

Simply knowing that the building will be commissioned is generally enough to ensure the building companies do everything properly, without cutting corners. That will give you confidence in this building and in future buildings created by the same firm or firms.

Alongside improved reputation resulting in a business boost for the building contractor, there are a number of benefits to building commissioning.

Better Occupancy

A commissioned building is considered a safe bet. Anyone looking to buy or rent will have confidence that the building is up to standard and won’t become a money pit. That means people can be confident occupying it and using it.

If you’re the owner better occupancy equates to better revenue.

Energy Savings

A commissioned building with better occupancy will be more energy efficient than one that isn’t. This is because all the occupants will contribute towards the heating of the building, creating an accumulation of heat that benefits everyone.

If the building is only partially occupied then there will be pockets of cooler spaces that need to be continuously heated by the other occupants. This will reduce the energy efficiency of the building while increasing the cost to individual occupiers.

Better Maintenance

Again, thanks to the higher occupancy rate, there will be more willingness and support for routine maintenance. This will help the building to last for longer, rewarding all the occupants.


This is potentially the most important factor. A building that has been commissioned is a safe building. There’s no danger of it, or part of it, falling on someone, developing cracks, subsiding, or causing any other safety-related issues.

This means insurance is cheaper and there are unlikely to be costly compensation issues to worry about.

Safety can also be extended to cover health. A properly commissioned building will have fully functioning ventilation and other health-related systems. This will help to maintain the health of anyone in the building.

In short, building commissioning makes the building more attractive to everyone.
