Building Commissioning

Building commissioning is a systematic documented process that helps ensure public facilities operate efficiently.

The DES Program Provides:

Professional Expertise: We help solve building problems, save energy and create a healthy and comfortable working environment.

Economical and Comprehensive Process: Project payback is typically 1-2 years. Customers receive project oversight and guidance throughout the entire process.

Prequalified Commissioning Firms: No need to advertise, customers choose from prequalified, reliable commissioning firms.

Contract Management: The process is managed from start to finish with contracts designed to protect the customer's interests.
