Existing Building Cx

Existing Building Commissioning (EBCx) is the process of testing current building systems, repairing or replacing failed components, and optimizing the performance of building controls to save energy and improve occupant comfort. This service takes a snapshot of the operational efficiency of your building/system and provides a plan to improve performance.

Enpowered solutions provides a variety of Existing Building Commissioning services including:

  • Retro-Commissioning (RCx)
  • Integrated Commissioning
  • Re-Commissioning
  • Monitoring Based Commissioning (MBCx)
  • Persistent Commissioning
  • LEED EBOM Commissioning

The collaborative approach we use with the facility is spearheaded by Enpowered’s emphasis on project leadership through planning, execution, all woven together tightly by the practice of thorough communication. We assign a Project Manager to serve as the client’s single point of communication for each project.  The Project Manager is responsible for all facets and stages of the project from project definition to contractor oversight to commissioning.

Our thorough planning process includes development of clear contract documentation, establishment of firm project schedules, and institution of accountability across our team for the entire project. With our planning process finalized, we organize and coordinate the resources required to implement the project.  We continuously track progress against the schedule and against specifications to monitor and control performance throughout the project lifecycle.   Although the project scope is unique to each building, EBCx seeks to achieve the following:

  • Identify previously unrecognized inefficiencies in building system operations
  • Measure and document energy savings from resulting operational improvements
  • Enhance building system performance and building comfort
  • Ensure persistence of savings and that the buildings are operating at peak efficiency
  • Identify low-cost O&M improvement energy efficiency measures
  • Identify and solve comfort and operational problems
  • Utilize the full potential of the facility’s energy management system
  • Ensure equipment performs properly and effectively
  • Optimize system performance to improve energy efficiency
