Retro-Commissioning

Each building has an optimum level at which it should ideally operate; however, not all buildings operate at this level. Retro-commissioning is a process to improve the efficiency of an existing building’s equipment and systems. Through retro-commissioning, a systematic process will be investigated to resolve problems that occurred during design or construction, or address problems that have developed throughout the building’s life as equipment has aged or as building’s functionality has been changed. Often, commercial buildings experience operational and occupancy changes over it’s life which would potentially challenge the mechanical, electrical and control systems; and consequently, it’s optimal performance. In today’s multiplex buildings, systems are highly interactive, with advanced controls that can create minor problems with significant negative impacts on overall energy performance. All buildings can experience performance degradation over time.

The benefits of our retro-commissioning services include:

  • Improved system operation; beyond preventative maintenance
  • Improved equipment performance
  • Increased O&M Staff Capabilities and Expertise
  • Increased asset value
  • Energy savings
  • Improved occupant comfort
  • Improved indoor environmental quality (IEQ)
  • Improved building documentation
