Commissioning: Ensuring Reliable Emergency Systems

Challenge

C3 was engaged by a developer to commission new high-rise corporate headquarters. The building featured extensive supplemental cooling, standby power and life safety systems which required an extraordinary level of commissioning to validate with 100% certainty these systems would function during an emergency.

Solution

C3 worked closely with the developer, MEP consultants and the general contractor to understand the occupant’s needs. We then required plans and sequences of operation during the design process, adding input on equipment selection, BMS controls and operating sequences, and metering, incorporating the needs for commissioning and future testing into the project.

Result

Our expertise and close collaboration resulted in a well thought out MEP system that met the occupant’s need for uninterruptible operations, while allowing for practical monitoring and testing throughout the life of the building.
