Technical Advisors is the Commissioning Authority for Fundamental Commissioning which validates that the project’s energy related systems are installed, calibrated and perform according to the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR), the Basis of Design (BOD) and the construction documents.
Additionally, TA specializes in the more complex Enhanced Commissioning which is a systematic process that ensures the required communication, coordination, testing, and verification have occurred. It includes design review, installation verification, proper system start-ups, functional performance tests, O&M training, and complete documentation of the commissioned systems. TA is a long-standing member of the U.S. Green Building Council which developed the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program, a leader in the sustainable buildings movement.
