Commissioning is crucial—it ensures your building runs smoothly and efficiently. Without proper commissioning, buildings may face challenges including:

  • Increased operational costs

  • Recurring equipment error codes

  • Ongoing maintenance headaches

  • Over- and under-heating tenant spaces

  • Poor ventilation in kitchens and bathrooms


Commissioning serves as a check-and-balance to the work of your general contractor. We compare installed systems to the original design, verify piping layout and components, troubleshoot any integration issues and confirm future maintenance is feasible. When issues are discovered, they are documented and tracked until the installation contractor has corrected the deficiency.

We have expertise in complex systems that include hydronic heating, steam heating, heat pumps, Package Terminal Air Conditioners (PTACs or PTHPs), geothermal, cooling towers, and Building management systems (BMS).
