Vertiv experienced commissioners maximize your return by delivering improved availability, enhanced safety, increased efficiency, and reduced operational costs.

Features

  • Commissioning specifications and plan documents are developed to clearly define the scope and schedule for all commissioning activities
  • Design review verifies alignment with the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR) document, checks for quality and coordination, and ensures proper design specifications for each discipline
  • LEED commissioning occurs for those seeking certification and will involve a Commissioning Authority (CxA)
  • Schedule integration brings together commissioning and construction schedules for reporting to all parties
  • Contractor submittal reviews verify compliance with the OPR, evaluate submittals for system-wide operational considerations, and make recommendations for correcting any variances
  • Installation and startup is completed per the manufacturer’s recommendations, industry accepted standards, and the OPR
  • Pre-functional equipment verification for each major piece of equipment is completed to confirm compliance with the OPR and construction documents
  • Functional and integrated systems testing confirms all equipment operates per design intent and works collectively as an integrated system under designed load and emergency conditions
  • Training verification from qualified trainers is provided for both O&M staff and facility owners
  • Commissioning report details the entire project to demonstrate systems are performing in accordance with the final OPR
  • Systems manual and operating procedures are developed to ensure O&M staff has the right resource for effective system operations for many years to come
  • System optimization allows for fine-tuning of equipment settings or schemes after the commissioned systems are operational
  • Seasonal testing is performed during the project’s occupancy phase because specific environmental conditions cannot be simulated during construction
  • Warranty review ensures any operational or system performance issues are resolved before the warranty expires 

Benefits

  • Greater availability and reliability of critical systems is achieved through verification and documentation of proper system installation, startup, and operation
  • Less unplanned downtime results from early detection and correction of problems
  • Fewer repairs are likely due to proper planning and design of systems from day one
  • Reduced lifecycle costs result from optimizing system performance
  • More convenient, single-source accountability is achieved through streamlined project management and communication from your commissioning agent
  • More cost-effective problem resolution arises from identifying issues early in the process
  • Fuller system integration results from verifying that all system components work not just independently, but as an integrated system
  • Better informed workforce occurs as the result of training verification and the development of quality system manuals and clear operating procedures
  • Enhanced ongoing maintenance and performance optimization is achieved based on benchmarking data established during the commissioning process
  • Improved efficiency results from verification of efficiency features as part of the commissioning process
  • Enhanced safety and compliance results from identifying safety hazards during design reviews, inspections, testing, and occupancy
  • Streamlined LEED certification process occurs by commissioning per LEED requirements
  • More substantial return on investment results from preventing problems and downtime
