Commissioning is the process of verifying that new buildings work as designed and meet objectives. The process typically involves:
- Understanding client objectives
- Verifying that mechanical equipment and systems are properly installed and perform to specification
- Documenting O&M plans and training staff to operate and maintain the building going forward
Buildings are complex and frequently do not perform as intended. Commissioning mitigates this risk by having an independent specialist conduct a thorough analysis of numerous components and systems, including:
- Building envelope
- HVAC, motors, and drives
- Building control systems
Additionally, commissioning services for new construction may also fulfill LEED certification requirements.
Commissioning engagements may start in the building design phase and continue to post-occupancy monitoring. To discuss commissioning services for your planned or new building, please contact us.
