Commissioning

We Identify, Correct and Verify Deficiencies in a Facility’s MEP Systems.

Barton’s Senior-Level commissioning agents have the experience of working for HVAC equipment manufacturers, contractors and in facilities management positions—experience that offers a unique level of insight during the commissioning process. Commissioning services can be performed for new facilities to verify proper installation, equipment operation, and control strategies as well as for existing facilities to evaluate equipment performance and identify deficiencies that occur as a result of degradation over time.  Barton’s commissioning services assist facility owners to optimize their facility operations.

Whether you are considering commissioning services for a new or existing building, Barton Associates provides the following benefits to our clients:

We can also provide training to help staff understand how the system works in order to maintain comfort and optimal efficiency.

Flexible Service Agreements: Barton offers various levels of service agreements to meet your facility’s needs. From specific problem-solving contracts to routine and full-service agreements that cover parts and materials, our goal is to provide you with the level of service you need. We also offer emergency response service agreements to support unexpected problems that may arise.

Focused on Optimization: As a service provider, Barton does not sell products or equipment, we offer knowledgeable unbiased third party perspec­tives. Therefore, our number one concern is optimizing the operation of your building’s MEP equipment. If upgrades or replacements are required, we will recommend them, however, there are no incentives for us to sell you additional equipment that you do not need.
