Commissioning is a systematic process that facilitates and ensures the required communication, coordination, and testing between designers and contractors to produce mechanical systems that perform properly and as designed and are installed appropriately. This systematic process includes design review, installation verification, proper system startups, functional performance testing, operation and maintenance (O&M) training and complete documentation of the Mechanical systems.
Commissioning serves the owner’s best interests by delivering a facility with systems that perform as specified, as intended and as paid for. Principal Glenn Thomas PE, is a Certified Commissioning Authority allowing him to commission buildings throughout the US. He is also a LEED accredited professional.
TEA also offers professional, independent commissioning service. This service provides the valuable benefit of representing the owner/user of a building in making sure that the designer’s HVAC design intent document correctly reflects the owner’s original performance expectations and requirements.
The commissioning service ties into Mr. Thomas’ LEED Accredited Professional certification. TEA can provide the skill and expertise required in the LEED certification process that requires fundamental building systems commissioning and awards a credit for enhanced third party commissioning.
