The term commissioning comes from shipbuilding. A commissioned ship is one deemed ready for service. Before being awarded this title, however, a ship must pass several milestones. Equipment is installed and tested, problems are identified and corrected, and the prospective crew is extensively trained. A commissioned ship is one whose materials, systems, and staff have successfully completed a thorough quality assurance process.
Commissioning Process: The commissioning process focuses upon verifying and documenting that the facility and all of its systems and assemblies are planned, designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained to meet the Owner’s Project Requirements. Our team of Certified Building Commissioning Professionals (CBCP) is dedicated to providing you with a level of comfort that you deserve once the project is complete.
Retrocommissioning is the application of the commissioning process to existing buildings. Retrocommissioning is a process that seeks to improve how your building equipment and systems function together. Depending on the age of the building, retrocommissioning can often resolve problems that may have occurred during previous design or construction projects, or address problems that have developed throughout your building’s life. In all, retrocommissioning will improve your building’s operations and maintenance (O&M) procedures and will enhance your overall building performance.
Recommissioning is another type of commissioning that we offer. Recommissioning occurs when a building has already been commissioned and undergoes another commissioning process. Typically the decision to recommission may be triggered by a change in building use or ownership, the onset of operational problems, or some other need.
