Airport Commissioning and Energy Management


Are your facility’s systems performing according to their designs? You can find out by implementing commissioning (for new buildings) or retro-commissioning (for existing buildings). We can also help you create an energy management strategy to assist with planning your future energy operations and increasing your overall resiliency.

Commissioning is a quality-oriented process that documents the performance and energy efficiency of a building’s systems against defined objectives and criteria. It also is a component for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification, which focuses on saving energy, conserving water, reducing carbon dioxide emissions and improving indoor environmental quality. Whether it’s a new or existing building, our experienced teams of commissioning engineers and specialists can help you assess the performance of your building’s systems. Proactive energy management can result in substantial operations and maintenance (O&M) cost savings, reduced energy use and increased equipment uptime.

Additionally, our staff can help develop an energy roadmap — a strategic energy plan that can help you forecast, prioritize and budget your buildings, systems and equipment. The process also helps establish policies and procedures for your facilities.
