Commissioning is an essential element of a high performance building.
Recognizing each project’s unique requirements, we tailor the commissioning process to our clients’ needs, providing services ranging from simple operational checkouts to complete integration with the design team on sustainable showcase facilities. AEC’s commissioning approach relies on forming a cooperative commissioning team involving the building owner, the design team, and the construction team to design and deliver a reliable and efficient building.
The commissioning process begins with Owner Project Requirements and continues through design, construction, acceptance, and warranty phases to verify and document that building systems are installed and operated as intended. Our focus is always on working proactively to prevent problems and implement solutions. As a result, our clients obtain buildings that operate at their peak performance, resulting in lower energy and maintenance costs, as well as more productive and healthier building environments.
For projects seeking LEED® certification, AEC provides LEED Prerequisite and LEED Enhanced Commissioning, as well as measurement and verification plan preparation and implementation to assist in achieving the full potential of a LEED certified building.
AEC typically commissions:
- HVAC equipment
- Lighting systems
- Building automation and controls
- Renewable energy systems
- Distributed generation
- Commercial kitchen equipment
- Electrical service / distribution systems
- Other building systems can also be commissioned as required and requested.
