Commissioning

When you invest time and money into designing a new system, assembly, or critical facility, you need it to be done right, right from the start. The commissioning process ensures that this happens by aligning your entire project team and maintaining focus on meeting your requirements. Vertiv’s experienced commissioners maximize your return by delivering improved availability, enhanced safety, increased efficiency, and reduced operational costs.

Commissioning focuses on verifying and documenting that the critical facility and all of its systems and assemblies are planned, designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained to meet your project requirements. For more than a decade, Vertiv has been a leader in the commissioning of critical facilities. We take a comprehensive, hands-on approach to commissioning, providing more than just administrative oversight. We will work with you and your project teams from pre-design through construction and up to one year post-occupancy. You can be sure that your new critical facility meets your needs from day one, and will deliver lower operating costs, improved energy efficiency, reduced downtime, and higher availability for many years to come.

Features

...
Commissioning  specifications and plan documents are developed to clearly define the scope and schedule for all commissioning activities
Design review verifies alignment with the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR) document, checks for quality and coordination, and ensures proper design specifications for each discipline
LEED commissioning occurs for those seeking certification and will involve a Commissioning Authority (CxA)
Schedule integration brings together commissioning and construction schedules for reporting to all parties
Contractor submittal reviews verify compliance with the OPR, evaluate submittals for system-wide operational considerations, and make recommendations for correcting any variances
Installation and startup is completed per the manufacturer’s recommendations, industry accepted standards, and the OPR
Pre-functional equipment verification for each major piece of equipment is completed to confirm compliance with the OPR and construction documents
Functional and integrated systems testing confirms all equipment operates per design intent and works collectively as an integrated system under designed load and emergency conditions 
Training verification from qualified trainers is provided for both O&M staff and facility owners
Commissioning report details the entire project to demonstrate systems are performing in accordance with the final OPR
Systems manual and operating procedures are developed to ensure O&M staff has the right resource for effective system operations for many years to come
System optimization allows for fine-tuning of equipment settings or schemes after the commissioned systems are operational
Seasonal testing is performed during the project’s occupancy phase because specific environmental conditions cannot be simulated during construction
Warranty review ensures any operational or system performance issues are resolved before the warranty expires
