Optimising The Built Environment

As an independent commissioning provider (CxP), Viscon implements a practical, cross-functional, systematic process to validate and document that building systems function in accordance with the project documents and owner operational requirements.

Diverse and creative approaches to commissioning benefit the discipline of building commissioning and its clients. The Essential Elements of Building Commissioning document below focuses on identifying critical attributes and components, rather than attempting to dictate a rigid commissioning process.

Building Systems

The following systems are typically the focus of commissioning based on the budget, systems where the Owner has experienced previous problems, on complex systems or on the criticaliality of the system.

  • Building Automation
  • Ventilation
  • Cooling and Heating
  • Building Enclosures
  • Lighting
  • Electrical, generators, batteries, automatic transfer
  • IT and OT Cybersecurity
  • Security and Access Control Doors
  • Automatic Fire and Smoke Management
  • Solar Shading
  • Plumbing Systems

Why Commissioning?


Recognising the pivotal role that commissioning plays in sustainability, Green Star awards points for commissioing in the management category for new and refurbished buildings.

Deliver Successful Projects Effectively

Achieve the benefits of the project including sustained savings in operating costs (energy, maintenance, etc).

The commissioning process supports the Owner and their project partners through all stages of pre-design, design development, construction and operation.

“Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.” – President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Retrofit And Repurpose

Apply the commissioning process to optimise existing buildings for the benefit of the organisation and communities including maximising indoor environmental quality and minimising the impact on our planet.

Viscon Systems contributed to the “I am your Optimisation Guide” with NSW Government and AIRAH.
