Commissioning & TAB

Commissioning

Commissioning is a valuable process that ensures building systems operate to the owner’s requirements. Systems that are commissioned have lower operating and maintenance costs as well as fewer change orders during construction.

ReVireo provides commissioning services tailored to the needs of the project team, including commissioning for energy code compliance, certification program compliance and for general quality assurance. ReVireo works with your team to develop a unique commissioning scope that suits the needs of the project.

ReVireo’s commissioning team completes site work to ensure that systems have been installed correctly and are operating to their full potential.

Testing, Adjusting, and Balancing

Design drawings indicate the proper amount of air and/or water flow that should be provided to each space in a building. If systems are not tested, adjusted and balanced these design values will not be achieved. This results in uncomfortable spaces, inefficient equipment, and increased costs.
ReVireo’s TAB team completes the necessary field work to ensure that these design values are achieved.

Energy Audits

Energy audits are performed on existing buildings to identify measures that will cost-effectively reduce a building’s energy consumption and save the owner thousands of dollars a year. Recommendations for improvement measures are made to the building owner and include expected cost savings for each measure.

ReVireo uses its expertise and experience to provide valuable recommendations with fast paybacks for its clients. Our team has an in-depth knowledge of many different building systems, enabling us to recommend unique solutions to improve building energy efficiency.

Utility Analysis

ReVireo provides utility analysis services for multifamily projects in compliance with IRS regulation 1.42-10(4)(ii)(E). ReVireo will develop compliant energy consumption models utilizing REMRate energy modeling software and will deliver estimated monthly utility costs per dwelling unit.
