Last Updated: August 13, 2023, by

Aimed at the Commissioning Manager/Provider, the Model Commissioning Plan is Published by BSRIA within the United Kingdom [UK]. It is written to provide a ‘Cx Plan Template for a Construction Project’ covering:

  • Stage 1 – Preparation
  • Stage 2 – Design
  • Stage 3 – Pre-Construction
  • Stage 4 – Construction
  • Stage 5 – Commissioning Of Engineering Services
  • Stage 6 – Pre-Handover
  • Stage 7 – Initial Occupation
  • Stage 8 – Post Occupancy Aftercare

If read, the commissioning process can easily be weaved into the Royal Institute of British Architects [RIBA] Plan of Work Stages, which are:

  • S1-Strategic Definition, / S1-Pre-Design
  • S2-Preparation and Briefing, / S1-Pre-Design
  • S3-Concept Design, / S1-Pre-Design

Our Review

In our opinion, a great guideline for the Commissioning Manager/Provider to reference. A complete commissioning plan can be developed in line with the BSRIA Commissioning Process Requirements.


Provides a step by step detailed approach to a Commissioning Plan format that can be adopted easily.

Could do better:

Makes reference to CIBSE Act 1,2,3 etc… but unless missing something not sure what this means.
