GREYHAWK performs HVAC commissioning to validate the owner’s project requirements. HVAC commissioning is a third-party quality assurance process that starts at design and continues through warranty to ensure building HVAC systems are installed and operate according to the basis of design and that system documentation and training are provided to facility staff. Our perspective adds value to avoid potentially disruptive post-occupancy troubleshooting and correctional work. Application of this process enables our clients to analyze their capital budgeted costs in concert with operations budgets to gain the optimal life-cycle cost of the systems.
HVAC commissioning is defined by ASHRAE Guideline 1.1-2007 and can include these building systems:
- Primary heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC&R) including boilers, chillers, steam generators, cooling towers, rooftop air-handling units, energy recovery units, and pumps
- HVAC&R piping systems and ductwork
- Terminal equipment including cabinet unit heaters, fin-tube radiators, exhaust fans, fume hoods, and unit ventilators
- Building Automation Systems (BAS) or automatic temperature control (ATC) systems
