Center of attention, the commissioning strategy document.
Whist other all important commissioning documents need to be produced, the one single focus document, in other projects it may be considered a commissioning manual, on my current project it is the commissioning strategy.
This document will detail my how. It sets the scene by explaining my why (as I believe vitally important as the website proudly portraits on my home page) but the basis of the document is how I intend the team will address the commissioning of the multiple operating and support plants on our first project. This document will not only provide the guidance and governing rules my team will need to follow in the fulfillment of their duties, but also inform the rest of the project and construction teams on how the commissioning organisation will be structured and managed. Indeed elements especially around the direct interaction with the installation subcontractors will be directly taken from this document and placed within contracts.
Initial entries centered on the why of my team. Then their function and their role within the greater project, finally my introduction addressed basic background information including success factors for the job.
The next sections start to drill into the detail, how we intend to complete commissioning planning, the roles and responsibilities of the team, criteria for commissioning governance and the overriding paperwork system that the team will employ.
It takes time to complete this type of work, I have scheduled around two weeks, more detail and information to share will duly follow.
Safe and successful commissioning to you always…
