Vi at Aventura is a 539,600-square-foot senior living facility. G/BA provided commissioning services on this $60 million project, with a focus on the mechanical and electrical systems.
Services included a review of the design documentation for code compliance and completeness. G/BA's commissioning team visted the site to observe construction and verify that systems were installed in accordance with design documents.We performed functional testing of selected systems and regularly tracked commissioning issues, including deficiencies in the design, construction, and operation of equipment and the resolution of the issues. For example, commissioning activities identified poor insulation installation on exterior chilled water piping that was also not in accordance with the specifications. Our team notified the owner and contractor, resulting in prompt corrective action.
G/BA's services also included verification that operations and maintenance personnel were properly trained. An independent contractor was retained to provide balancing checks of air and water systems.
Work performed subsequently at this facility includes energy consumption analysis, HVAC revisions, moisture issues consulting, and other facility investigations and troubleshooting projects.
