HRCx is dedicated to being your boots on the ground commissioning group. We are dedicated to the commissioning process as an integral part of the project team from concept to completion™ and not just a check box on a scorecard. We work with Owners, Architects, Engineers, Contractors and Operations throughout the design, construction and occupancy phases. We believe our approach allows the Owner to receive a building or system that meets or exceeds their needs. As a true owner’s advocate, we are your technical watchdog.

OwnersProjectRequirements

Operating with extreme accuracy and reliability, we analyze owners’ unique requirements and mitigate the risks involved to ensure that clients’ targets are met.  We follow a tradition of building strong relationships with our clients by providing an unmatched level of service on every project. Our strong commitment to continuous improvement and training on new and emerging equipment and technologies has enabled us to adapt to change within the marketplace, as well as the changing business needs of our clients. 

Whether commissioning a new building or an existing building, we develop a custom commissioning  program to identify and correct issues in their infancy. The program includes comprehensive functional test plans which is at the core of commissioning.

Our acute knowledge of the commissioning process, paired with expertise in building systems, has translated into the development of commissioning services for specialized applications, such as healthcare, data centres, nuclear/power generation and critical environments. We also carry out LEED Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning for projects looking to achieve LEED certification.

The Commissioning Process

The HRCx Commissioning Process is based on the best elements of commissioning identified in ASHRAE Standard 202 and Guideline 0, CSA Z320, and CaGBC LEED V4 Enhanced. Building upon this framework, we adapt this model to suit owner project-specific requirements.

HRCX-Commissioning-Approach

Our Program offers a tailored solution that mirrors the client’s functional specifications, project schedule, and budget.  Whether you are commissioning a new or an existing building, we provide a comprehensive approach that is positioned to successfully meet your objectives.

Each project is led by a designated Commissioning Authority (Commissioning Specialist / CxA), and Commissioning  Coordinator selected based on their expertise to meet your specific project requirements. The CxA is responsible to the client for the success of the project. In addition, the CxA develops and implements the project-specific Commissioning Program, and directs the remainder of the assigned Project Team throughout its execution. Beyond a building that is fully functional and operational, we deliver a commissioning program to ensure your facility achieves your vision.
