Systems that were commissioned consist of MEP and controls, including boilers, pumps, cooling tower, heat exchangers, air-handling units, water source heat pumps, supply and exhaust fans, unit/cabinet heaters, and variable air volume boxes.G/BA was responsible for inspecting equipment installation, witnessing equipment startup, and functionally testing the newly installed equipment

Our team performed several site inspections, noting construction issues such as:

  • Heat pump hoses were of an excessive length and were kinked, causing obstruction of flow.
  • Control valve not installed on condenser water return at heat pump.
  • Missing fire stopping on fire-rated shaft.

Upon completion, G/BA was also involved in providing training for the owner and operators on the building systems installed.
