Commissioning is a systematic and documented process of verifying that all of a building’s systems, including mechanical/HVAC, lighting, electrical, plumbing and specialty systems work as they were intended by the design engineers and as required by the building owner.
RJA’s commissioning agents have design and mechanical construction backgrounds to provide systematic and practical inspections of the installation and operation of these systems, ensuring all of the equipment operates in an integrated manner, improving reliability, maintainability, and overall efficiency.
RJA can provide commissioning services for new and existing buildings, through retro-commissioning and re-commissioning.
Systems and equipment commissioned by our team include:
- large scale VAV air handling systems,
- industrial condensing water system,
- split system A/C systems,
- steam and heating water boiler systems,
- domestic hot water systems,
- daylight harvesting lighting systems,
- occupancy sensor controlled lighting systems and photocell exterior lighting systems.
Additionally, we are experienced with:
- fire alarm systems,
- hospital medical gas systems (bulk and local),
- nurse call systems,
- solar thermal and solar photovoltaic renewable energy systems,
- emergency and back-up power systems,
- and mission critical cooling systems.
Sustainability Consulting and Energy Modeling
Energy modeling is a powerful tool that can be used to quantify a building’s energy use and the cost savings associated with various design options. Throughout the design process the simulation is used to help inform and shape the project’s design features. Each design alternative’s performance may be compared individually or in concert to optimize the building. Additionally, energy modeling is a critical tool for documenting compliance with State and Local energy codes and modern building rating systems (LEED, Green Globes, etc.).
Our modeling services include:
- Full Building Energy Modeling
- Identify and Prioritize Energy Conservation Measures
- High Performance Design and Energy Consulting
- Local Utility and Government Rebates
“I met Darin (Ramirez) and Eric (Johnson) a couple years ago, and glad I did. We have had a chance to work on a few projects now (Lash Boulevard Salon, French for Sugar Bakery and Duet Design Group Interior Designers). I have to say, these guys are going to get all or most of my projects in the future. They listen, they take deadlines seriously, reasonable in their costs and almost no comments during plan reviews in various municipalities. These haven’t been the easiest projects either in a building boom climate that isn’t easy. That’s a combination, these days, that can’t be beat.” Jerry Boland
“Our projects at Park Burger Rino and Home Grown Tap and Dough Arvada went smoother than we expected with RJA’s designs. Their responsiveness and quick turn around on Bird Call gave our team the flexibility to evolve the design into a new kind of food experience, One that is enhanced through technology, service, art, and architecture.” Peter J. Newlin
