Commissioning Management

Tetra Tech’s High Performance Buildings Group provides commissioning management services around the world on projects designed to achieve reliability, sustainability, and energy efficiency.

Commissioning is a vital part of verifying the performance of today’s high performing buildings and facilities. Tetra Tech’s commissioning experts provide full management services for the testing, maintenance instruction, design review, and environmentally sustainable design services for various project types, including office buildings, corporate headquarters, data centers, academic buildings, laboratories, tenant interiors, hospitals, sports arenas, stadiums, manufacturing facilities, residential buildings, and hotels. Our commissioned buildings provide a range of benefits, including optimal performance and reliability, proven safety, enhanced occupant comfort, lower energy consumption, a low carbon footprint, cost savings for both construction and operation, and improved maintenance and function of systems.

Our commissioning services verify that our clients’ projects are correctly designed and installed, fully tested and commissioned, and able to be maintained for optimal operational efficiency. Our commissioning process applies engineering techniques and procedures to check, inspect, and test operational components and verify the operation of engineering systems—often under simulated conditions—prior to occupancy or being put into full operation.

We work across many industries and have built a comprehensive commissioning process for many services systems, including specialist installations for mission critical and health facilities. Our ability to meet deadlines and budgets is evident in our many successfully completed projects.
