Demand Increasing for Building Commissioning Services

BOULDER, Colo. — A new report from Navigant Research says the demand for building commissioning services (BCS), which ensure a commercial building’s equipment and control systems are performing as designed, is accelerating worldwide.

North America is anticipated to lead the world in this rising market, accounting for $13.8 billion — nearly half of the $28.8 billion — in total worldwide revenue for BCS in a period from 2012-2020, the study said.

“Concerns about the initial costs of commissioning, as well as a lack of understanding and awareness of its benefits, have kept the practice of commissioning relatively rare in the construction industry worldwide,” said Eric Bloom, senior research analyst, Navigant Research. “In the long term, however, these barriers will start to fall as the concept is further proven and as green-building certification and other high-performance building standards become more commonplace and desirable.”
