Abstract

Although high-tech facilities, such as laboratories, data centers, cleanrooms, health care, and specialized research facilities, receive a higher level of quality assurance and optimization in construction and operation than traditional buildings, energy performance is often not a central focus.

This article discusses two commissioning case studies: The Molecular Foundry and the Advanced Light Source facility, both at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
