 The Best Investment You Never Knew You Needed

Re-Commissioning is the application of the Commissioning Process applied to projects that have previously been commissioned. During building operations, systems may become out of balance or may be adjusted. As a result, the building may not operate in an efficient manner. Additionally, the needs of a facility may change as tenants, owners, and technologies change.

 

The Re-Commissioning Process brings a high quality delivered project to the standards set by either the original or revised Owner’s Project Requirements. A Re-Commissioning Process can typically be applied relatively inexpensively since documentation is available from the original commissioning of the building.
