Building Systems Commissioning Approach

Is professionally operated and staffed such that our backlog of work can be performed without interruption of services to our clients, whose interest and perceptions are paramount to the success of our business.  From our inception in 2010, BCC has aggressively pursued market transformation and commissioning process development and implementation on the local and international level. BCC has over 80 projects of combined experience in commissioning facilities.   Our BCC technical teams have fostered cohesively over the years allows in developing a very efficient process, which translates to a better return on the Owner’s investment.

BCC works to form and facilitate a multi-disciplinary commissioning team as our standard approach to successful delivery of independent commissioning services.  Combining the assets available from prime contractors, designers, and owners, and augmenting their expertise alongside our experienced certified commissioning professionals provides a solid foundation for effective commissioning execution.  The Commissioning Authority will operate within the performance guidelines set out in the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR) and incorporated into the Basis of Design (BoD) documents.  These two documents shall be continually revisited to ensure the project's construction and the Building Systems Commissioning adheres to the OPR and BoD.

BCC maintains a strong commitment to education and instruction as a cornerstone to the success of our organization. BCC Management, Inc. utilizes BCA Certified Commissioning Professionals (CCP’s) and also ACG certified commissioning authorities (CxA’s) to execute the commissioning process on our projects.

BCC shall implement the criteria of the following resources as the basis for evaluating and establishing the overall testing program:
  *AABC National Standards for Total Systems Balance - Seventh Edition 2016  
  *ACG Commissioning Guideline - 2005 
  *ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1 - 2013: Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low Rise Residential *Buildings (SI Edition) 
  *ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 189: Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings 
  *ASHRAE Guideline 0 - 2013: Commissioning Process 
  *ASHRAE Guideline 1.1 - 2007: The HVAC&R Technical Requirements for the Commissioning Process

The above noted documents are the primary source references for the training of BCC personnel and would be the primary basis of our evaluation of the overall project-testing program combined with project plans and specifications requirements and contractual obligations.

For proprietary systems we would reference appropriate manufacturer’s information and prevailing industry standards. Our personnel are carefully trained to monitor application of relevant criteria through national standards, client design and installation standards, and proprietary documentation as required.

BCC employs experts from all building science fields and the Cx Provider Group is tailored for each project. Staff will be on site for scheduled commissioning meetings and periodic site visits to conduct necessary interim tests and inspections and at a frequency demonstrated in our Cx Plan. BCC will also be on-site to witness commissioned systems start-ups and Owner training, to implement functional performance tests and during the warranty period service as needed to facilitate any remedial Cx work and perform the 10-month walk-thru prior to expiration of the warranty period.
