Maximizing Your Building’s Performance
As a building owner, it can be challenging to determine whether your building systems are functioning at peak performance. Building systems are complex and can include a variety of components, including mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as building automation and control systems. Building systems can also be affected by a variety of factors, such as changing weather conditions, changes in occupancy, and aging equipment.
Without specialized knowledge and tools, it can be difficult to identify and address issues that may be impacting system performance. Even small inefficiencies in building systems can result in higher energy consumption and increased operating costs, which can add up over time.
When you partner with PV, our team of experts will assess your building systems and identify opportunities for improvement. We will conduct a comprehensive review of your building systems, including equipment and controls to identify inefficiencies and prioritize improvements that will ensure your systems are operating at peak performance.

Commissioning can help save up to 20% of yearly operating costs for your commercial facility.
Commissioning adds far more value to a project than just checking a regulatory compliance box. In fact, commissioning can help save up to 20% of the yearly operating costs for commercial facilities, a statistic highlighted in multiple studies, including one conducted by the United States Department of Energy. With such a high return, commissioning commercial facilities is a smart investment.
