Commissioning

KCI provides commissioning services to both public and private sector clients. We are well-versed in providing project commissioning (Cx) services for projects that we have designed and projects designed by a third party, as well as enhanced Cx for LEED certification. While much of our experience is on new construction that is seeking LEED certification, we have also completed a number of building renovations and retro-Cx projects.

A commissioned facility has lowered operations and maintenance (O&M) costs and increased overall performance. In addition to non-energy benefits, Cx programs can reduce change orders and RFIs, accelerate schedule and improve the functionality and cohesiveness of the team during construction.

Our certified professionals facilitate a team approach in order to provide the most thorough, efficient and effective method of systems commissioning. Working alongside the owner, architect, and engineers during the pre-design and design phases helps promote an understanding of the design concept, so that it can be carried forward into the construction phase. This tailored approach provides facility owners with a breadth and depth of experience that ideally supports successful project completion. Services include:

  • New building commissioning
  • Retro commissioning
  • Re-commissioning
  • Building envelop commissioning (BECx)
  • LEED commissioning
  • Hybridge CM/Cx services
  • Commissioning team augmentation
  • Energy conservation program review
  • Commissioning management
  • Inspection services
  • O&M training and manual development
  • Maintenance plan development and review

KCI’s Cx agents perform installation inspections of individual components to ensure consistency in the inspections and document the start-up process. Upon installation of all system components, commissioning agents conduct systems performance testing for each sequence of operations, in all modes, including startup, shut down, capacity modulation, emergency, and failure modes and alarms.
