A flexible service
Because every project is different, SPGL offers three levels of commissioning support which can be adapted to create the ideal approach for a facility. We also provide a continuous commissioning service, extending our support post-occupancy to ensure that a facility continues to operate at optimum productivity with a healthy and comfortable work environment.
1. Independent Witnessing Agent
Depending on the size of the project, one or more SPGL commissioning managers would work as part of the project management team. Acting independently of the M&E contractor and commissioning teams, we would be the accepting authority for all M&E project testing, commissioning and performance testing.
2. Commissioning Management
An SPGL commissioning team would compile and monitor the commissioning schedule and be responsible for ensuring that all commissioning activities were executed and completed efficiently and cost effectively. For this approach to succeed, the commissioning manager must be an integral part of the project team from the design phase through to completion.
3. Complete Commissioning
SPGL’s complete commissioning service combines the role of commissioning manager with commissioning execution, giving our team responsibility for all planning, management and execution services. The M&E contractor would be responsible for delivering systems to a defined state of mechanical completion, after which we would carry out all further activities.
- Improves energy efficiency
By ensuring that systems are designed, implemented and operated properly
- Reduces change orders
Through early detection of issues during design and construction
- Reduces maintenance costs
By identifying ways to make systems and equipment easier to service and maintain
- Ensures correct and efficient equipment operation
Extending equipment lifetime and avoiding premature malfunction
- Improves indoor air quality and thermal comfort
Increasing occupant productivity
- Reduces time to completion
By improving coordination between design, construction and occupancy
- Improves communication between project teams
Accelerating the detection and resolution of issues
- Improves in-house knowledge
With comprehensive documentation covering every aspect of a building’s systems, processes, facilities, equipment and utilities
- Long-term impact
Commissioning-related savings extend beyond the project budge, showing up year after year as reduced operating and maintenance costs. For example, if commissioning at the design phase identifies a way to make an equipment room more accessible, it can save thousands of dollars every time the equipment is repaired or replaced.
