BaselineES has extensive experience with optimizing facility equipment, mechanical systems and controls to reduce energy consumption or resolve operational issues, and provides New Construction and Remodel Commissioning Services and Existing Facility Re-Commissioning Services, as well as Existing Facility Condition Assessments.
New Construction and Remodel Commissioning
The importance of correct and thorough commissioning of newly constructed or remodeled facility MEPR systems cannot be overstated. If proper startup and commissioning practices are not followed, the ongoing reliability and efficiency of these systems can be forever compromised.
BaselineES commissions new and remodeled customer facilities, equipment, and building systems rigorously, documenting equipment and deficiencies as we proceed. Baseline then works with the facilities’ suppliers and contractors to make sure each deficiency is resolved.
Baseline takes the responsibility of commissioning our customer’s mechanical, electrical, plumbing and refrigeration systems seriously, and ensures our customer’s facility assets and systems are placed into service without design, equipment, or installation defects, thereby eliminating the downtime, operational disruption, and increased operating expenses these defects cause.
Existing Facility Re-Commissioning
Re-commissioning often represents the single most significant measure that can be taken to reduce a facility’s energy usage and eliminate long-standing issues with facility performance or environmental conditions. Re-commissioning is all about making the best possible use of your existing building assets, and is the first step that should be taken in any major facility upgrade improvement program, before any equipment replacements or system re-designs are considered.
BaselineES offers re-commissioning services for all the key systems and equipment within customers’ existing facilities, including refrigeration, HVAC, lighting, and control systems.
Baseline’s field engineers carefully review and test the key systems and equipment in our customers’ facilities to uncover any operating issues, incorrect operating control setpoints, or maintenance problems that are causing excess energy usage, performance issues, or equipment failures. After carefully documenting all existing conditions and determining the facts, Baseline engineers then work with customer maintenance personnel or service contractors to correct condition faults, adjust control setpoints and strategies, and complete any needed maintenance in order to bring the facility to optimum energy and operating efficiency.
Existing Facility Condition Assessments
Facility condition assessments are most often completed to lay the ground work for major remodels, to establish the condition of facilities and assets being considered for purchase or sale, or to evaluate the effectiveness of existing service and maintenance programs and contractors. Facility condition assessments done by Baseline are completely independent and unbiased appraisals of customer facilities, and include on the evaluation and testing portion of the full re-commissioning process.
