  • Fewer installation call backs

 

Commissioning is a systematic process to ensure building systems perform according to the design intent and the Owner's operational requirements. It is a quality assurance program that is focused on long term building performance. 

Buildings that do not function at an optimum performance level cost more to operate and negatively affect your bottom line. Poor performing buildings require excessive repairs and result in shorter equipment life. Buildings that do not provide a safe, comfortable environment will result in employee absenteeism, tenant turnover and the possibility of legal liability.
