Commissioning Verification

Home » Commissioning Verification

Myriad of building owners assume that the quality control of their system should be left to the ones, who design and install them. More often than not, designers have a little to no time during the construction phase of a project and cannot dedicate means necessary to go through every detail of each system. Also, in many occasions, installers have very tight schedule brought about by construction delays. With such circumstances, there is no individual on the traditional construction team dedicated on making sure the system in its entirety is complete and has zero faults. This is where a commissioning verification or third-party commissioning service can be of huge significance. Third-Party Commissioning befits to majority of the building systems, such as, HVAC, lighting, plumbing, sustainable systems, waste water, fire-safety, building security, etc.

EMergy’s third party commissioning verification includes certification of the MEP services’ testing and commissioning to ensure the compliance with the set of requirements and specifications from both the property owners and relevant authorities. The role of our experienced commissioning engineers also includes:

  • Checking design and construction drawings’ suitability for commissioning;
  • Keeping track of all systems installations during construction;
  • Verifying all commissioning and testing activities for equipment and systems; and
  • Compilation of all commissioning and testing documents.

Commissioning Verification

Commissioning efforts typically include involvement across all project phases — design, construction and startup. By participating actively throughout the life of a project as a strong owner-advocate, our commissioning professionals contribute to the project’s success and serve as a conduit of communication and problem-solving among all parties.

Verifying and Documenting Facility Systems

Commissioning is a systematic process of verifying and documenting that your facility and all of its systems and assemblies are planned, designed, installed, tested, operated and maintained to your project requirements. Commissioning goal is to turn over a building that delivers, or exceeds, the performance and energy savings promised by its design. Idea lly the commissioning process begins before the design phase, continues into the warranty period for a minimum of one year after construction, and prepares your operations personnel to take on the job.

On new construction, the focus is on code compliance, performance, scalability, comfort, and energy efficiency. Whereas, on existing buildings, Commissioning verification Consultancy analyze for optimal operational and maintenance procedures, providing recommendations for improvement. We document system performance to verify intended purposes and operational requirements—to make sure your facilities are living up to your standards.

Commissioning Verification Engineers work alongside other engineering specialists to expertly verify and witness projects. This includes on-site and off-site tests to ensure the most stringent compliance with specifications and building/project performance.

Clients can be confident that their projects will be professionally managed from conception through to completion. We have a proven ability to oversee the delivery of professionally managed and well organised operations, with successful commissioning verification roles in many major projects. All aspects of commissioning and testing are covered; CIBSE Codes, BSRIA Guidelines and Part L Building Regulation requirements.

PROCESS

PRE-DESIGN PHASE

Commissioning ideally begins in the predesign phase. The Pre-Design Phase lays the groundwork for the project, defines the plan for commissioning, and begins the essential team building process. During this phase the commissioning team is assembled and the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR) and the building program are developed. All decisions made in ensuing phases should be made with reference to the OPR.
Objectives

DESIGN PHASE

During the design phase, the commissioning process confirms that design documentation (plans, specifications, Basis of Design (BOD), etc.) are consistent with each other, include commissioning requirements and meet the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR). 3.2 Objectives ð Communicate the commissioning requirements to other project team members
Objectives

CONSTRUCTION PHASE

Successful construction phase commissioning is a well coordinated quality assurance process that encompasses installation, start-up, functional testing and training. During the construction phase the commissioning team works to ensure that equipment, systems and assemblies are properly installed, integrated, and operating in a manner that meets the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR). Functional testing and documentation provide valuable performance benchmarks, acceptance criteria and a baseline for the future operation and ongoing commissioning of the facility
Objectives

OCCUPANCY AND OPERATIONS PHASE

The Occupancy and Operation Phase normally begins at Substantial Completion. This last phase of the New Construction Commissioning focuses on finalizing all uncompleted functional testing, training and project documentation while fine tuning building performance prior to project completion.
Objectives
Proper commissioning is not just a testing and verification process and must start early in the project and continue until a comprehensive handover to the operations and maintenance team is achieved. Furthermore, one must look beyond simply commissioning individual systems as the complex buildings of today require very careful integration of numerous interdependent systems.
