Complete Building Commissioning Services

The design phase of commissioning has always been an area which CES has placed a great emphasis on. This originates from the commissioning team being led by a past design engineer who brings with him a deep understanding and passion for both cutting edge sustainable MEP technologies as well as reliable proven efficient systems. In addition to extensive knowledge of building systems, the past design experience brings with it a strong understanding of design implications in regards to LEED, CT High Performance and DOE-BSF. During the Cx/CA design review process, the commissioning team provides a strong focus on control system sequence of operations as well as overall HVAC design improvement suggestions.

CES provides commissioning services for systems including:

 

MEP/FP Systems

Technology

Solar (Photovoltaics)

Building Envelope

 

During construction pre-functional and functional tests, a strong emphasis is placed on occupant comfort and energy affecting measures to confirm that  systems are installed and operating correctly. Past control backgrounds of team members helps to ensure a strong focus is aimed at the direct digital controls owners workstation to not only confirm system programming is per construction documents, but to confirm graphical correctness to provide the owner with graphics which will assist in system troubleshooting and maintenance throughout the life of the building. We have found one of the most critical pieces in our projects has become the direct digital controls system since so many energy using devices relay on scheduling and set points. From this, the fine tuning and verifying which we focus on helps to ensure optimal energy efficiency as well as occupant comfort.

CES provides commissioning services during:

Pre-Design Phase

Design Phase

Construction Phase

Acceptance Phase

Post Occupancy Phase

Provide documentation and reports (ie. Commissioning plans, Owners Project Requirements, Commissioning Specs, Observation Report)

Coordinate and assist with owner training

Work with facility owners to ensure that all building systems operate at their optimum efficiency
