What is Retro-commissioning?
Retro-commissioning is a systematic process for identifying and implementing operational and maintenance improvements in existing buildings. The purpose is to optimize the function of building subsystems to enhance overall building performance.
What are the Benefits of Retro-commissioning?
Our retro-commissioning process has ongoing benefits for everyone from building owners to occupants. Building owners experience lower operating costs thanks to energy savings and optimal equipment performance. Building occupant’s complaints are reduced after a retro-commissioning project due to improved lighting, more consistent temperature control, and improved indoor air quality.
