Commissioning Processes

/ Services

Designed to inspect and test a facilities HVAC Systems to ensure they are all operating to the required specification and efficiently.

Commissioning is typically done on new facilities when the Builder or General Contractor must prove all the systems are functioning properly to the Owner, before the Owner will accept the project as being complete.

ReCommissioning is recommended every 5 years to ensure all systems are calibrated and operating correctly and all operating manuals are properly filed and accessible.  In the case of a large facility, operating logs and/or modifications to procedures for logging equipment status are reviewed.

Ongoing Commissioning involves monitoring existing Building Automation and Control Systems to ensure all alarms and trouble logs are handled properly, and sensors are calibrated correctly.  Main electric and gas utility meters can be monitored in real-time and sub-metering of HVAC, Lighting and Plug Load, can be installed and monitored to help identify inefficiencies that are usually a sign that maintenance services are needed.   (Read about our Monitoring & Call Center capabilities.)

 

RetroCommissioning may be required on older facilities that have not gone through a regular Commissioning process and/or there have been changes to how a facility is being used. RetroCommissioning can involve refurbishing an HVAC system and bringing sequences of controls back to their original configuration. Recommendations may be made to make changes from the original design to accommodate modifications or additions made to a facility, or to take advantage of a more energy-efficient system. There often exists opportunities to take advantage of Federal, State or Local Grants or Tax Incentives to save energy and upgrade to newer equipment.
