Although Commissioning is most effective when it begins at the design phase, many owners seek ways to improve their existing facilities. Commercial buildings frequently undergo operational and occupancy changes that challenge the mechanical, electrical, and control systems, as well as the building staff. Increased need for system integration results in a trickle-down effect on building operations ̶ small problems can have big impacts on performance and costs.
Retro-Commissioning goes beyond a set of prescriptive tune-up and maintenance measures. We provide a truly customized process to assess costs and comfort. We investigate how and why a building’s existing systems and equipment are operated and maintained as they are, and then isolate and identify ways to improve overall performance.
Building operating costs are reduced, leading to an increase in net operating income. Building managers notice fewer occupant complaints and an increased ability to manage systems. Retro-Commissioning helps owners maintain their competitive advantage in the marketplace by reducing expense, enhancing property value, increasing occupant satisfaction, and promoting an optimized facility through reduced energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions.
