New Construction Commissioning

We provide commissioning of new buildings and systems in accordance with BCA Best Practices for Commissioning of New Buildings. Commissioning is a proven quality assurance process that ensures that building systems satisfy design intent and function optimally. It is required for LEED certification and to satisfy the CalGreen code. Commissioning of new construction is also proven to reduce callbacks, avoid costly maintenance problems, improve occupant satisfaction, and reduce energy costs.
