What is Technical Commissioning?


We break technical commissioning down to its simplest form, which is “making things work.” By using this simple approach, we can test everything we do for our clients. For example, if we are commissioning a chiller, typically the technical commissioning requirements call for both validating chiller capacity and energy consumption. When we use our test of “making things work,” our test methods are designed to validate both performance and capacity simultaneously, which saves time and money.

We have learned from our years of experience in providing technical commissioning services for mission critical facilities — as well as validating Biotechnical and Pharmaceutical production facilities — that test methods have to be repeatable. This experience, combined with our troubleshooting skills, truly sets us apart from our competitors. Our proven test methods are tried and true, based on years of experience. These test methods are clearly documented on every project we touch, which gives the facility a solid baseline for future troubleshooting and retesting.

Through the technical commissioning process, we deliver a building that works as needed and as intended. This process includes the following elements:

  • Confirmation and documentation of the functional performance requirements of the building
  • Testing and validation of system operation and performance
  • Integrated system testing (performance & system level testing)
  • Transfer of knowledge gained through the technical commissioning process to building operators
  • Mans and methods for troubleshooting system failures
  • A building that works as needed and as intended at the highest efficiency possible
