Commissioning of new construction projects includes ground-up new buildings, as well as additions to existing buildings. By definition, traditional commissioning is the process of assuring that all systems and components of a building are designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained according to the operational requirements of the owner.
Cornerstone acts on the owner’s behalf to lead the project team through the turnover to acceptance and occupancy phases, and can help save building owners millions of dollars in operating costs.
Cornerstone partners with a diverse client base, many of whom are seeking LEED Certification or Net-zero results. Through collaboration with the entire project team, we ensure the planning, design and construction processes view the selection and installation of building systems with a mindset of energy efficiency and longevity. By incorporating commissioning early in design, Cornerstone can aid in accomplishing these goals in a cost-effective manner.
Our traditional commissioning expertise has been successfully utilized for the construction of healthcare facilities, sensitive research centers, corporate office buildings, and college buildings (dining halls, athletics facilities, student centers, dormitories, classrooms, auditoria, stadiums, retail shops, faculty housing, libraries).
