Retro-commissioning: what you need to know

NEW DATE! APRIL 30, 2018


As your building ages and its occupants change, it is important to review your building’s control strategies and operating procedures.

Retro-commissioning is a cost-effective way to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs and peak demand. Since it focuses primarily on energy-using existing equipment and on low-cost improvements, it is usually more cost-effective than installing new equipment. It can often resolve problems that occurred during design or construction, or address problems that have developed throughout the building’s life. Retro-commissioning involves a systemic evaluation of opportunities to improve energy-using systems.


Retro-commissioning benefits everyone in a building. Building owners see reduced operating costs from the energy savings and better equipment performance, leading to an increase in net operating income. Building occupants are more comfortable because the adjustments lead to more consistent temperature control and better indoor air quality. Building managers, meanwhile, face fewer occupant complaints and are better able to manage building systems.


Learning objectives will include:

  • What to expect from retrocommissioning.
  • How retrocommissioning can prepare you for continuous commissioning.
  • How your local utility can assist with your retrocommissioning project.
  • How to prepare your facility, as well as your staff, for a retrocommissioning project.


One hour discussion followed by Q&A.
