As commissioning agent, Colliers implemented a systematic process designed to verify that the HVAC and related systems function properly to meet the Owner’s requirements. This is achieved by applying quality control principles to all aspects of the HVAC systems, including inspection and testing of the air handling units, boilers, VAV boxes, exhaust fans, steam generators, and humidifiers. Given the sensitive nature of work being conducted in the building, properly functioning heating and cooling systems and space pressure relationships are critical. Colliers also provided check & balancing services, verified proper space pressurization of operating and procedure rooms, and tested emergency inspection modes of operation.
