New Construction, Recommissioning & Retro- Commissioning
The term “commissioning” comes from shipbuilding – a commissioned ship is ready to sail. Commissioning your building means installing and testing all equipment, identifying (and correcting) any problems, training staff, and passing a thorough vetting process to make sure everything is up to applicable standards. Our team of commissioning professionals at ColeBreit are experienced in commissioning new construction, recommissioning, and retrocommissioning.
LEED Fundamental & Enhanced Commissioning
LEED Fundamental Commissioning involves all of the commissioning tasks that are required in order to earn any level of LEED certification. LEED Enhanced Commissioning includes all of the components of LEED Fundamental Commissioning with added support during the design development phase of your project, along with support through the construction and post-construction phases.
