In new construction, the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR) defines the expectations, goals, benchmarks and success criteria for new building design and construction. Ideally, this document is completed by the owner but more typically, it is developed by or in partnership with the commissioning professional and project team.
For an existing building, the equivalent is the Current Facilities Requirements (CFR) as it defines the building’s current operational needs and requirements. Similarly, the CFR ideally is driven by the Owner or Facilities Staff; however, often times the commissioning professional is required to lead the Owner in this process. This interactive session with two dynamic presenters and moderated by Building Commissioning Association (BCA) President Bill McMullen will demonstrate the value of each of these owner documents. Hear from each of these presenters on what is different and similar in an OPR and a CFR, how they help the commissioning professional deliver a quality project for the Owner.
After completing this webinar you will be able to:
1. Articulate the components to be included in the OPR.
2. Communicate the purpose and importance of the OPR and/or CFR in order to maintain these guiding documents thought-out an entire project.
3. Describe the level of detail needed to complete the CFR.
4. Distinguish the main differences between the OPR and the CFR.
