Specialist commissioning manager
BREEAM UK New Construction, Non-domestic Buildings (United Kingdom), Technical Manual, SD5078: BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 3.0, published by BRE Global Limited, defines specialist commissioning managers as:
‘… a specialist contractor rather than a general sub-contractor, able to independently verify the work carried out by the project team members installing the systems. The specialist commissioning manager can be appointed by the client or the contractor to perform the tasks described under the relevant criteria for buildings with complex building services and systems and defined in their contract. The specialist commissioning manager shall be a professional who, in the opinion of the assessor, has experience or qualifications that enable them to undertake the responsibilities described in this issue (Commissioning and handover). As an example, membership to the Commissioning Specialists Association (CSA) is a relevant qualification.’
