One of the most critical aspects of ensuring proper energy performance in buildings is proper building commissioning. Building commissioning is a quality-focused process for enhancing the delivery of a building construction project. The process focuses upon verifying and documenting that the facility and all of its systems and assemblies are planned, designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained to meet the Owner's Project Requirements. ONSA's highly experienced professionals are familiar with the diligence and attention to detail that is required to provide effective commissioning services to our Clients. They realize that the commissioning process requires thoughtful insight from professionals with theoretical and practical experience which in turn allows the project to reach its full potential.
The LEED system has made building commissioning a mandatory requirement for certification. Furthermore, an additional LEED credit can be earned by performing extended commissioning. ONSA specializes in commissioning of projects pursuing LEED Certification. With LEED Accredited Professionals on staff, ONSA is able to ensure that the requirements for LEED are met, whether it is Fundamental or Best Practice Commissioning.
ONSA provides both fundamental and best practice commissioning services that meet all the requirements of ASHRAE Guideline 1 and the Canadian Green Building Rating System.
