Monitoring-Based Commissioning

Our Commissioning Services

Analyze, Monitor & Optimize

Using technology to continually monitor, track, and measure a buildings operation.

What is monitoring-based commissioning? This process uses innovative techniques and technology to constantly monitor building equipment, system functionality and system performance.

Through analytical and diagnostic algorithms, monitoring-based commissioning can—in real time—identify energy savings and potential performance enhancements. Systems operators can use these insights to make minor, regular changes to proactively identify issues and optimize efficiency.


What monitoring-based commissioning includes:

  • Utility Analysis
  • Benchmarking
  • Fault Detection & Diagnostics
  • Data Analytics
  • Resource for Building Operators & Maintenance Staff
  • Learn the Building’s Personality
  • System Schedule & Setpoint Optimization
  • Energy Conservation / Efficiency Measures
  • Facility Improvement Measures

Building efficiency declines over time, increasing your operating costs and negatively impacting equipment life. Adding Monitoring-Based Commissioning as a risk management tool protects your net operating income.

Proper Building Optimization

Understanding a building’s personality allows the commissioning team at McCownGordon to fine-tune its automation systems’ schedule and operational setpoints. This process seasonally validates equipment functionality and performance, reduces utility consumption, and minimizes operational run times to avoid what could otherwise be excessive wear to equipment.

Warranty Support

Monitoring-based commissioning means that McCownGordon is involved during a warranty period to provide additional support to operations and maintenance staff, document and correct issues and save building owners from spending out of pocket when issues arise.

Technical Advocate

Typically, operations and maintenance staff are expected to take over maintenance of all systems once a building is turned over. However, unexpected issues may arise that the staff may not necessarily be trained or equipped to handle. McCownGordon remains a resource and maintains all needed information to achieve optimal system performance.

Tools & Proactive Maintenance

Our team not only verifies functional performance to optimize a buildings’ systems, but we also proactively provide and calibrate Fault Detection Diagnostic (FDD) rules.

Seasonal Testing

Should initial functional testing be done in the middle of a cooling or heating season, we ensure peak performance in the opposite season to validate all systems are prepped for any potential extremes. We put the system through a full heating and cooling operation and test to identify areas of improvement.
