Re/Retro-Commissioning: Repairing Your Systems to Function as Designed
Building commissioning is the preferred method for ensuring that building systems are installed and operated to provide maximum performance and are in accordance with project requirements. Architecture and engineering firms dominate the new construction commissioning market – and for good reason. They act as the owner’s agent, separate from the contract chain. They have contractors from each trade who are required by contract to ensure the building systems are operating as designed.
We believe that after an efficiency assessment, re/retro-commissioning (RCx) projects are the ideal second step when looking to upgrade your building systems. For owners with in-house service teams, architecture and engineering firms make excellent choices for a RCx agent. However, customers who lack the staff required to implement recommended changes often feel they end up with no action plan to fix them. Our team of in-house engineers and analysts work alongside our technicians and allow us to create a report on your behalf. Because of this, we can identify issues, explain the importance of fixing them, and provide a proposal for how to fix them.
Engineered Site Assessment: Optimizing Your Systems Beyond Their Original Design
The purpose of commissioning is to repair building systems to function as designed, but the functional needs of a building can change over time. How does an Engineered Site Assessment differ from traditional commissioning? We will provide a description of feasible energy efficiency measures (EEMs) for you to consider implementing.
What does an Engineered Site Assessment Include?
• Description of Existing Conditions
• Description of Proposed EEMs
• Expected Annual Savings Associated with EEMs
• Expected Cost to Implement EEMs
• Return on Investment Calculations
We Offer Commissioning & Engineered Site Assessments for These Systems:
• HVAC Systems & Controls
• Compressed Air
• Electric Motors & Drives
• Heat Recovery
• Renewable Energy Applications
• Building Envelope Upgrades
