New Building Commissioning (Cx)
B2Q Associates help ensure newly constructed buildings perform in accordance with their design intent, contractual obligations, and the owner’s operational needs. Our commissioning services include “peer reviews” of owner’s design documents, a common sense practice that can save tens of thousands of dollars in construction costs, improve the design, and lower long term operating costs. We also provide comprehensive facility start-up commissioning, including functional testing of systems, adjusting and balancing, verifying system integration, and training of operating staff to operate and maintain systems safely and efficiently.
B2Q and its staff have been the commissioning agent for many project types including dormitories. In the lead CxA capacity, B2Q staff have written, reviewed, observed and performed a wide array of functional tests on all HVAC, controls, plumbing, lighting, lighting controls, and renewable energy systems. Additionally, B2Q has developed long-term partnerships with reputable firms that we regularly team with who specialize in building envelope, mission critical electrical, fire protection, and life safety.
B2Q has also pioneered the use of monitoring-based commissioning software in new construction projects. This technology is a “game changing” advance in new construction commissioning.
