Whole Building Commissioning
Our commissioning agents are loved by owners, design teams & contractors
Our commissioning agents have a “best for the project” mentality.
Instead of policing your project, we add a layer of verification for the design and construction team.
Instead of pointing fingers and blaming, we collaborate to find reasonable, practical solutions before they become costly.
For owners, the earlier you engage a commissioning agent the more value you can realize.
We reveal and fix issues before design, before construction and before occupancy, mitigating risks and costs right from day one.
A project designed without practical engineering experience can raise construction costs and worse, operational costs for the lifetime of that project. Capital’s commissioning engineers are with you to save construction & lifetime operational costs by implementing fixes in the earliest possible phases of the project.
- We define project goals and operational metrics for the building
- We reduce operational glitches
- We train building operators for a smooth facility takeover
Let’s reduce RFIs and change order reviews for design teams.
Our detailed design review process reduces discrepancies, ambiguities and cross-discipline miscoordinations.
“By bringing an engineering viewpoint to the design, we assist the design team and architects to create viable and operational designs.”
We all love an innovative design, but without considering operational ease and costs, the solution may not be in the best interest of the owner and tenant. By collaborating with the design team we enable them to tailor their design in accordance with engineering possibilities during the construction and operation stage.
Reduce weekend and after-hours work post-occupancy.
An optimally performing building reduces warranty callbacks and post-occupancy issues.
We help contractors ensure that their construction is in accordance with the
With thorough installation verification and functional testing, we eliminate many punch list items that can crop up during late construction and hinder project timelines.
“Our coordination improves team communication, highlights critical path items, and helps contractors keep the project on schedule.”
“A commissioning engineer is the first person an owner should interact with, even before the designer, to set project goals.”
