Optima offers basic, full service and LEED enhanced commissioning services. In general, commissioning is the process of verifying that a building’s systems (whether new or renovated) have been installed and properly adjusted to operate according to the design intent. This process provides the building owner with the assurance that the building’s systems are operating as specified and intended, and can also help the owner understand a given building’s limitations.
Commissioning typically includes an examination of the building’s mechanical (HVAC), electrical (both normal and emergency power), plumbing, fire protection, fire alarm and low voltage systems. We have extensive experience in commissioning commercial and public properties, as well as providing inspections, factory witness testing, operator training and economic analysis recommendations based on results.
