Operation & Maintenance Manuals provide the necessary system-level information, where manufacturer’s standard printed data is not available, and the information necessary for proper operation and maintenance of materials, equipment or systems, specific to the installation in question.

Operation & Maintenance of a facility represents the greatest expense in owning and operating a facility over its life cycle. The accuracy, relevancy, and timeliness of well-developed, user-friendly O&M manuals are very important. Hence, it is becoming a necessity for detailed, facility – specific O&M manuals to be prepared prior to commissioning. The goal is to effectively and efficiently support the life cycle of the facility by eliminating unplanned shutdowns and realizing life-cycle cost savings.

– Based on as-built information, facility O&M manuals include:

   – System – level O&M information:

   – Physical Descriptions

   – Equipment / Material Schedules and Identification

   – Parts Lists

   – Health and Safety considerations (during operation and maintenance)

   – Functional Descriptions (wherever applicable)

   – Preventive Maintenance (Procedures and Schedules)

   – Corrective Maintenance (Repair Requirements)

   – Troubleshooting

   – Operation/Maintenance – Significant Drawings

   – Equipment / Materials – specific O&M information, organized into a vendor/manufacturer data library

Each manual will serve also as training resource (consisting the basis for the production of relative Training Manuals and execution of Training Courses) , during end user personnel training, as well as a future reference for operators and Facilities Maintenance personnel encompassing all necessary information concerning the proper operation and maintenance of each system and all associated components.


During the Construction Phase of the project delivery process, systems and assemblies are installed, inspected, tested, and placed into service to meet the Owner’s Project Requirements. This phase may also include bidding, negotiation, and contracting activities.

The fundamental objectives of the Commissioning Process are to:

    (a) Clearly document Owner’s Project Requirements;

    (b) Provide documentation and tools to improve the quality of deliverables;

    (c) Verify and document that systems and assemblies perform according to the Owner’s Project Requirements;

    (d) Verify that adequate and accurate system and assembly documentation is provided to the owner;

    (e) Verify that operation and maintenance personnel and occupants are properly trained;

    (f) Provide a uniform and effective process for delivery of construction projects;

    (g) Deliver buildings and construction projects that meet the owner’s needs, at the time of completion;

    (h) Utilize quality-based sampling techniques to detect systemic problems, as such sampling provides high value, efficient verification, accurate results, and reduced project costs; and

    (i) Verify proper coordination among systems and assemblies, and among all contractors, subcontractors, vendors, and manufacturers of furnished equipment and assemblies.

The commissioning process follows guidelines and standards of the relative international associations:

    -ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers),

    -BCA (Building Commissioning Association),

    -CSA (Commissioning Specialists Association) and

    -USGBC (US Green Building Council).
