Ongoing Commissioning, Real Time Monitoring

  • Overview
  • Cases

Altanova assists owners to ensure the optimal operation of building MEP systems and equipment through our Retro-Commissioning and Ongoing Commissioning services for existing facilities. Whether you need commissioning services for local law compliance or LEED-EB certification, or are just interested in gaining the long-term benefits of lengthening the lifetime of your building systems or improving operational aspects of your building, Altanova can help you with your commissioning needs.

Commissioning 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.
