Commissioning of building engineering services is vitally important for their safe, reliable and energy efficient operation. The success of commissioning depends on a systematic approach that drives the process to a successful conclusion. Ongoing fine tuning for the operation of a building facility is a key strategy for action to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. Systematic and thorough commissioning processes make a significant contribution to achieving these environmentally responsible goals.
As commissioning managers, ECS provides a holistic approach to the commissioning processes across all engineering services disciplines and manages the planning, organisation, co-ordination and control of commissioning activities. Commissioning management also encompasses guidance and assistance to the services contractors to formulate a consistent delivery standard of documentation, to demonstrate and record the various commissioning activities and confirm actual performance.
Consideration of commissioning is ideally started in the schematic design phase to enable consideration of the process when key decisions are made. ECS provides the specialist skills and knowledge to this commissioning management process.
