Commissioning

Our commissioning approach is both comprehensive and innovative. It seeks to streamline the commissioning process most prevalent in the industry so that commissioning might become more attractive to the industry, and therefore more adopted by it. Our experience in commissioning activities has been extensive. Our history is unique in that we have commissioned every project we have designed (plus some designed by others). Even before the coining of the term “commissioning”, we performed functional verifications on representative samples of MEP systems and components including HVAC Testing, Adjusting and Balancing, HVAC controls, fire alarm and others. This level of service and the resulting experience exceeds others in the industry. We believe that our job is not done until we confirm that our designs are installed and operating as we intended. These services have been included by default, not by contracted expectation. Proper commissioning not only calls for knowledge of the commissioning process, but more importantly, a thorough understanding of the systems. These understandings, we maintain, require appropriate design experience in addition to commissioning experience. While we believe that commissioning is appropriately managed by a professional engineer, we also have ASHRAE’s Commissioning Process Management Professionals (CPMP) on staff to take our commissioning service to the next level.
