Commissioning Existing Buildings (Retro-commissioning)
SRM offers diverse services for the retro-commissioning of buildings and their operating systems, including utility bill analysis and climatic correlation analysis using Environment Canada Weather reporting data, providing LEED® building commissioning services and works with other building science associates for the building envelope and roof commissioning needs.
While identifying system operating variances and deficiencies Robert Young P. Eng works with Dr. Philip Ju, P.Eng.,LEED AP® and Andrew Gledhill, P.Eng., CEM, LEED AP® to provide the engineering, energy modeling and other analytical capabilities to address the deficiencies and upgrading building system capabilities that qualify for the many electricity, natural gas and water use reduction incentive programs.
SRM recently completed a pilot project for the Ontario Power Authority that funded the installation of energy meters and data logging equipment in a large older chiller plant. The results showed that ongoing commissioning would lower energy costs, improve equipment performance and provide documentation of the performance, alarms and delivered chilled water for better sustainable resources management.
