For evaluating the project quality and identify potential significant design defects before it is too late or expensive to make changes, building commissioning should be embedded in the following phases: predesign phase, design phase, construction phase, transition to operational sustainability, postoccupancy and warranty phase, and retrocommissioning [21].
The commissioning process and the CxA provide a continuous thread from predesign through occupancy.
