Delivering Level V Commissioning has earned sys-tek a strong reputation for successfully commissioning and retrocommissioning all types of buildings and facilities. We invented the term Level V commissioning to provide a visible breakdown of technical commissioning based on project needs and owner desires, knowing that there is not one stamp that fits every project.

The breakdown for the five levels of technical commissioning include:

Level 1 — Design Phase

Develop detailed and comprehensive commissioning specifications and critique of design as it pertains to commissioning.

Level 2 — Construction Phase

Review and coordinate the application of the testing plan through the observation and documentation of all equipment and systems, ensuring function complies with the facility’s project systems requirements, objectives, and all contract documents.

Level 3 — Acceptance Testing

Providing on-site testing, commissioning, and performance testing. This is the most critical phase in the commissioning process. Capacity test critical equipment such as chillers, air handling units, boilers, and pumping systems. Includes testing internal failures and recovery tests, and reporting and annunciation of alarms and abnormal conditions.

Level 4 — Integrated System Testing

At this level, the interaction between the building systems with one another shall be demonstrated under both normal and abnormal operating conditions. Under this level of commissioning, we will validate how the site infrastructure, such as chillers, pumping systems, heating plant, air handlers, and electrical systems will likely perform as a system over the next 60 months.

Level 5 — Warranty Phase

One year functional retesting of all equipment and systems within the commissioning contract. Re-visit any outstanding issues in accordance with the original and seasonal commissioning. Facilitate the required opposite season or deferred testing and deficiency corrections. Final testing results, documentation, and reports shall be incorporated into the existing commissioning record as well as the current O&M manuals. Provide a retrocommissioning plan of systems for future implementation.
