HVAC Testing, Adjusting and Balancing (TAB) are the three major steps used to achieve proper operation of HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems The balancing of an HVAC system is usually based upon the design flow values required by the Mechanical Engineer for a project. After testing, we submit a written report which summarizes the testing and balancing and notes any deficiencies found during the TAB work. MEP Commissioning Management is the process of assuring that all systems and components of a building or industrial plant are designed, installed, tested, operated and maintained according to the operational requirements of the owner or final client. Commissioning is a quality process of checks and balances for ensuring building systems are designed, constructed, and operated for peak performance. The budget requirements of some projects will dictate that the owner can afford only basic functional testing. When this occurs, it can have an impact on building performance during design or early construction. Too often the commissioning team is only brought in at the end of the project for functional testing when it is much less cost-effective to make changes for operational efficiency.
Periodic Re-commissioning: Periodically, the HVAC systems in a building that were commissioned when new are re-commissioned. The purpose of re-commissioning could be to diagnose the cause of on-going, unresolved problems, or as part of a planned preventive maintenance program that includes formal re-commissioning elements. Re-commissioning may be limited to the systems exhibition problems or may be carried out on all HVAC systems in the building.
Retro-commissioning: Identical to re-commissioning methodology, but for buildings that were not commissioned when new and are being commissioned for the first time.
HVAC System Modifications: As occupancy or operational requirements change over time, HVAC system Modifications will be undertaken to meet the new requirements. As with new construction, commissioning will ensure that the modification work has been carried out in accordance with the contract document and design intent, and that new work has been properly integrated with existing systems.
