Building Commissioning Services

Building commissioning (Cx) is a critical component to help ensure the delivery and sustained operation of high-performance buildings expected by facility owners.  As an ACG Certified Member company, SBP provides full building commissioning services in support of LEED certification and International Energy Conservation Code compliance with a skilled eye for energy performance.

These services are enhanced through coordination between the Commissioning, Sustainable Programs, Building Performance, and Building Enclosure departments.  Each of these departments boasts a diverse group of individuals who bring unique professional, educational, and cultural inputs to their work.  Additionally, SBP utilizes cutting-edge, internet-based platforms which empower us to extend our reach beyond the Mid-Atlantic region.  It is through the dedication of our personnel and leveraging of latest technologies that SBP serves projects regionally and nationally.

The SBP standard allows for an individualized approach to each project’s challenges.  With the increased complexity in building systems, owners are finding the value of ensuring all commissioning requirements are performed and the building is functioning per the design intent.  SBP delivers a high-quality product through our ongoing dialogue and “hands on” method with project teams.


Commissioning Process

  • Establish Relationships: At SBP, we develop working relationships with the entire project team to identify and resolve issues throughout the project effort. Our Certified Commissioning Authorities (CxA) are a direct line from ownership vision to deliverance of the final product.
  • Design Intent: Our involvement with the design team allows for critical insights to be incorporated into the early design packages, reducing the need for formal requests for information in later stages of the projects.
  • Performance Verification: Our CxAs analyze design packages for consistency across all trades. This translates to proper integration of equipment, systems, and their controls. Additionally, our collaborative approach with the construction team members allows for fast and painless issue resolution in real time.
  • Acceptance: The combined efforts of the SBP process culminates to a verified, high-performing product reflective of ownership’s total vision.
