VBFA commissioning engineers protect the integrity of your investment by offering meticulous support and inspection throughout the entire design and construction process. Learn more about our building commissioning services for new construction projects and building renovations in Utah & Arizona.
Bridging the Gap Between Design and Construction
Modern, high-performance buildings are incredibly sophisticated; not only are they more technologically advanced than ever before, but they must support multiple integrated, complex systems to carry out their most critical functions. To guarantee your next high-performance project is carefully designed and accurately built, you need an experienced advocate on your side throughout the entire project development.
The commissioning team at VBFA is here to support owners through every step — from reviewing initial design plans and overseeing construction to testing fundamental systems and training your team on how to operate and maintain your new space. To protect your investment, commissioning is the invaluable quality control safeguard you can’t afford to do without.
Read on to learn more about the many solutions our commissioning team offers.
How VBFA Engineers Raise the Standard of Commissioning
While there are many who provide commissioning services, few have the insight and experience of VBFA’s team. Here’s why:
Our team exclusively features licensed engineers who hold additional certifications above and beyond engineering licensure. Many commissioning providers are not licensed engineers. These firms don’t have the same in-depth knowledge of critical, engineered systems as our team does, which can result in less thorough project commissioning and poorer results for you.
Wide Pool of Expertise
Because we are a part of VBFA, our team has unmatched access to many different engineers in various disciplines. We can tap into our extended talent pool to gain a clearer understanding of unique systems or to collaborate among experts for even better decision-making.
Because we are licensed engineers, we have experience not only testing and reviewing the systems within your project, but designing them. From electrical and HVAC to plumbing, refrigeration, sewer, and more, we have a thorough understanding of how systems like these are intended to operate. This allows us to catch and correct even the smallest discrepancies for superior results for you.
Our Commissioning Services
Commissioning is a process, not an event. That means that when diligence slips in any of the commissioning steps, the domino effect can drastically impact the overall quality of the project. We proactively prevent any loss in quality by maintaining careful quality control protections for each step in the process — from pre-design through post-construction.
Here are the most common ways our commissioning team supports new construction or renovation projects:
A process of guaranteeing all systems and components of a building or project are designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained according to the owner’s operational requirements. This includes:
- Systems training for your team to support the longevity and performance of your project
- Consistent report generation for clear documentation throughout the process
- Problem-solving technical issues that arise with your design and construction partners
- Testing equipment and systems
- Overseeing the project from start to finish
