Commissioning

Third-party verification of installation and performance of building systems.

What is Commissioning?

Commissioning services are the owners' best means of quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC).  Commissioning ensures collaboration between the contractors on a project.

The commissioning process verifies and documents that selected building systems have been designed, installed, and function according to the owner’s requirements and construction documents as well as meet minimum code standards.

Campos Engineering is a NEBB and ACG certified commissioning firm.

Our Commissioning Process

At the start of the project, Campos identifies the project goals, objectives, and commissioning requirements. An essential part of this process is developing consensus with the team by setting achievable goals aligned with the client’s project goals.

The next step in the process is to develop a strategy for the commissioning plan. Campos assembles the commissioning team, led by a certified commissioning professional, which reviews design and construction documents to develop the commissioning plan.

The commissioning team executes the necessary work of the commissioning plan.  Interim quality control checks take place at 10%, 50%, and 90% complete. Both design and construction phases of a project have quality control periodic reviews.

A confirmation meeting is held with the client and the project team upon completion of commissioning projects.  In this meeting, the team presents the final commissioning report and reviews the training syllabus. This training is recorded and available for future reference.

Case In Point

Commissioning services by Campos Engineering save a Texas school district money and eliminate product maintenance issues. 

 

The Campos Engineering commissioning team observed that replaced mechanical equipment did not meet the school district’s guidelines and some of the equipment was not operational. 

The fundamental issue was that the specified equipment was not installed. Rather than go into a blame game scenario, Campos worked with the project team to develop a solution. 

Under Campos’ direction, the school district replaced the mechanical equipment with the originally specified equipment at no additional cost. Looking at the bigger picture, the faulty equipment was slated for installation on numerous projects. This discovery stopped the equipment from becoming a district-wide issue, saving a lot of money and frustration.
