Axiom Engineers: Commissioning Services

Building Commissioning (Cx) is the process of verifying new construction (or new systems to existing buildings – called retro-commissioning (RCx)) of the mechanical engineering systems to achieve the owner’s project requirements as designed by the architects and engineers. Buildings that are properly commissioned typically have fewer change orders, tend to be more energy efficient, and have lower operation and maintenance cost.

ASHRAE defines commissioning as:
"A quality-focused process for enhancing the delivery of a project. The process focuses upon verifying and documenting that all of the commissioned systems and assemblies are planned, designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained to meet the Owner's Project Requirements."

Axiom Engineers℠ and its team of commissioning agents provide the expertise to maximize your new or existing building’s performance. Using a process tailored to your building design and specification, Axiom Engineers℠ strives to minimize your operating costs and improve building comfort. Our experienced professionals bring extensive building code and Green construction knowledge to verify proper installation and operation of your facility’s various energy systems.
