TIME FOR A BUILDING CHECK-UP TO LOCK IN COMMISSIONING BENEFITS.
When you first commissioned your building, you made a smart commitment to maintaining energy efficiency and providing a healthy, comfortable indoor environment. Recommissioning ensures that mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems are still functioning efficiently and meeting the demands of a building in full operation.
WE ALREADY COMMISSIONED OUR BUILDING! WHY DO IT AGAIN?
You certainly won’t have to start from scratch, but the fact is that the operating profile of even an expertly commissioned new building will change to some degree once it is occupied. Body heat, equipment running, doors opening and closing, kitchens in use – all these things have an impact. After you’ve been up and running for 6 months to a year, it’s time to verify, recalibrate, and fine tune. And, as years pass, the need for periodic recommissioning increases.
- Have you remodeled any part of your building?
- Has building usage changed?
- Has technology evolved?
- Have your energy bills unexpectedly increased?
- Have new operating staff members come on board?
Recommissioning adapts operating systems to change and new demands, ensuring that maximum savings and other benefits will continue as planned.
WHY YOU CAN’T AFFORD NOT TO RECOMMISSION?
You probably saw statistics like these when you commissioned your new building:
- Commissioning can result in energy savings of 20-50% and maintenance savings of 15-35%. *Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA) cost data for office buildings
- From another perspective, experts estimate that it is 8-20% more expensive to operate a building that hasn’t been commissioned. *Portland Energy Conservation, Inc. (PECI)
Periodic recommissioning locks in the benefits of your initial commissioning investment!
MAINTAIN A BUILDING YOU CAN BE PROUD OF!
- Ensure your building systems are operating efficiently as designed
- Make necessary adjustments so that operating systems match building demands
- Anticipate future concerns and create a plan for addressing them
- Increase property value & maintain energy savings
- Avoid frequent or unexpected repairs and replacements
- Extend the lifespan of operating systems and system components
- Equip maintenance staff with up-to-date training and accurate benchmarks
