We help building owners protect and grow their investments by ensuring that all building systems are installed and operating properly.
Group14 began offering commissioning services in 2005, and it’s the firm’s fastest growing sector of work thanks to our expertise and repeat clientele. Our industry-leading commissioning process is built on combining Group14’s technical expertise with cutting-edge technologies like fault detection & diagnostics and cloud-based software.
Commissioning is the process of verifying building’s systems operate as intended and according to the owner’s requirements. Group14 has commissioned over 600 projects across a wide variety of industries. We have a team of 17 commissioning professionals with expertise in MEP, HVAC, Power Distribution, Building Enclosures, Building Automation, Lighting, Life-Safety, and Low-Voltage Systems.
Group14 was one of the first adopters of Monitoring-Based Commissioning (MBCx) in the country. We also remain ahead of the curve when it comes to its latest uses and innovations. MBCx can enhance the commissioning process by providing remote real-time monitoring from equipment startup through warranty. It is also utilized to enhance the testing process and evaluate equipment operation over time. Additionally, Monitoring-Based Commissioning provides credit toward LEED v4.
Building Enclosure Commissioning (BECx) is a quality-based process for evaluating the performance of a facility envelope to determine if a project is meeting the requirements set by the owner. Enclosure issues, specifically uncontrolled air and water in filtration, are some of the most common and costly sources of building failures. For this reason, our clients are increasingly requesting that BECx be included in our overall commissioning plan.
Retro-commissioning (RCx) is a deep investigation of equipment operation with a specific focus on optimizing buildings controls. Testing and data analysis help to identify operational issues and detect opportunities to optimize control sequences.
Turning Data into Action with Monitoring-Based Commissioning
RCx Software: Triumphs & Challenges
The Group14 commissioning team performed a top-notch inspection and verifications program for a very complex mechanical and electrical system. Their keen eye and engineering knowledge for third party commissioning was remarkable.
