Our CEMS Commissioning Group is a natural extension of our design services. Our purpose is excellence in project delivery; which includes building occupancy and use, with commissioning proving to be the necessary element in building performance through its lifetime. Commissioning is a core element of sustainable design practice. It ensures that sustainable design strategies and components are translated from contract documents into the built facility’s architectural fabric. The commissioning process bridges this gap through the systematic procedures which span from early design through construction, system startup, occupancy, the warranty period, and beyond!

New Building Commissioning
New Building Cx begins in the planning phase and continues through construction, acceptance, and the warranty period, including:

• Design review
• Functional performance testing
• Post-occupancy monitoring
• 10 month Warranty Review
• Recommission on regular intervals to ensure system operates correctly


Re-commissioning entails the same Cx tasks as a new building, but for a building already in operation, including:

• Verifying previous commissioning plan
• Revising operations to meet program changes
• Equipment testing per original specifications
• Maintaining building performance

Existing Building Retro-Commissioning
Retro-Cx applies to existing buildings that have never been commissioned to identify and correct building performance issues,

• Conduct interviews with building operators
• Energy audit and operator interview
• Review of record plans and energy bills
• Identify issues and provide recommendations
• Implement recommendations and functional testing
• Recommission on regular intervals to ensure system operates correctly
