Model Commissioning Plan and Guide Specifications, 1997

Developed jointly by Portland Energy Conservation Inc. (PECI) and the U.S. DOE, this 500-page document details the commissioning process for new equipment during both the design and construction phases for larger projects. It also provides boilerplate language, content, format, and forms for specifying and executing commissioning.

The document is generally based on ASHRAE Guideline 1-1996 with significant additional detail, clarification, and interpretation. Updated in February 1998, the document can be downloaded from this site.

Working with the Oregon Office of Energy, PECI revised this model plan for inclusion in the Oregon Commissioning Toolkit.
