Commissioning agents are an owner's best friend when it comes to successful project delivery. On large-scale, fast-track or complex building projects involving multiple consultants, our commissioning agents act as much-needed owner advocates who work with the design team and contractor to ensure that each step of what can be a highly-segregated process comes together for final building systems that are designed, installed and operated as you originally intended. What good is a system that doesn't help you meet your end-goals for functionality, cost control and maintenance before the next renovation or upgrade is due in 20-50 years? Our team will ensure that you as an owner are truly getting the quality systems you expect, that they are working to warranty standards before final hand-off, your maintenance staff is trained to handle them, and that you gain maximum return on your investment for the long term.

Additionally, if you are looking for more dollars in your organization's pocket, our commissioning team provides a variety of services geared toward system performance testing and energy optimization. Running field tests, studies and reports to detect energy consumption issues, we'll identify opportunities for improvements and significant energy cost savings.

Services include:

  • Design Review
  • Install Verification
  • Performance Testing
  • Energy Optimization
  • Retro-Commissioning
  • Enhanced Commissioning
  • Troubleshooting
  • Test and Balance

Test and Balance

As a complement to our NEBB-Certified Commissioning services, Cleary Zimmermann also offers NEBB-Certified Test and Balance (TAB) consulting to help you gain efficiencies in the turnover of your building. Quality system design means nothing if the air and hydronic flows are not properly balanced. Our dually certified staff, coupled with the overlap in activities and responsibilities between the TAB and Commissioning groups, allows us to handle both specialties under one contract, reducing the number of players and fostering more effective project communication.

Our NEBB-certified TAB Technicians and Professionals have the hands-on experience necessary to understand the many intricacies of the construction and operation of HVAC and mechanical systems. Some of our personnel even started their careers as Test and Balance contractors, and their experience goes back decades in key markets, including laboratory/healthcare, education, corporate, and federal. And to top it off, our TAB team has the industry gold-standard NEBB® Testing Adjusting and Balancing of Environmental Systems certification, validating their construction, systems, equipment, and automation systems knowledge. 

Most importantly, we work for owners directly, so you can be confident that your goals are our goals, and rest assured that your mechanical building systems will be balanced so they meet design intent. With Cleary Zimmermann Engineers providing both Commissioning and TAB for your project, complexity and communication issues are reduced dramatically, saving you time, money, and stress in the crucial final days prior to the turnover of your building.
