Commissioning Authority (LEED)

Our commissioning methodology and associated documentation readily translates to the LEED assessment process and assists our clients to achieve the desired outcomes for the grant of a LEED certification.  

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) sustainability rating developed by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) fosters a commitment to delivering energy and water efficient buildings. As part of this programme, several ratings credits can be obtained under the Commissioning Authority banner, including Enhanced Commissioning.

Similar to an Independent Commissioning Agent under Green Star, the Commissioning Authority is involved right from the commencement of the design phase of a project. ECS has successfully delivered a number of LEED certified buildings in Australia including Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct- SICEEP (Gold), Melbourne Airport Terminal 4 (Certified) and Equinix SY3 facility (Gold).

Commissioning Management

Commissioning management is a process-driven approach that provides a step-by-step methodology for each stage of a construction project from schematic design through to building fine tuning and final handover.


Independent Commissioning Agent (Green Star ICA)

Our collaborative and inclusive performance of the ICA role, by ensuring the early engagement of the building engineering services contractors, assists in delivering a co-ordinated all services approach to commissioning for the award of the Green Star credits associated with Commissioning and Fine Tuning.


Mission Critical

 A structured quality assured commissioning method ensures Mission Critical facilities can run continuously, reliably and also automatically respond to equipment and utility supply failure events.


Soft Landings

The Soft Landings Framework aims to facilitate a collaborative and informed approach to the handover process such that there is a seamless transition from construction to operations.



Recommissioning is a worthwhile regular exercise that should often follow a noticeable increase in energy consumption, water consumption or increase in tenant complaints about comfort levels.


Building Tuning

All buildings once completed and fully commissioned as designed will require “fine tuning” to optimise the performance of the various systems that provide amenity to the occupants.
