Commissioning

  • Overview
  • Cases

Altanova assists owners to ensure the correct installation and optimal operation of building MEP systems and equipment through our Enhanced and Fundamental Commissioning services for new buildings, and Retro-Commissioning and Ongoing Commissioning services for existing facilities.

Commissioning is required for LEED-NC and LEED-CI projects, and is increasingly being sought by owners to enhance the performance of existing buildings. Some states and jurisdictions require commissioning for local law compliance. For existing buildings, retro-commissioning requires a relatively modest upfront investment. According to a study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), the average cost for retro-commissioning is $0.30 per square foot, and the median payback time is a little more than a year, with 16% median energy savings. Conversely, a building that is not commissioned will cost 8-20% more to operate over its lifetime.
