LKPB Engineers









You’ve built a beautiful new building, invested heavily in it, and months after moving in the heating, air conditioning, and lighting still don’t operate effectively. Commissioning the building could have prevented this headache.

What is commissioning?

  • The formal definition is: A quality-focused process for enhancing the delivery of a project. Verifying and documenting that all of the commissioned systems and assemblies are planned, designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained to meet the Owner’s Project Requirements (ASHRAE).
  • Our definition is: Making absolutely sure the building systems and equipment work the way they are intended to work, and staff know how to operate them.


Why choose LKPB Engineers for commissioning?

  • We are hands-on. We don’t make extra paperwork. We make sure equipment works.
  • We recommend and primarily use ASHRAE Standard 202-2013 - Commissioning Process for Buildings and Systems. We are familiar with and can also use Guideline 0 and other forms when required.
  • We help lead all the construction team members through all phases of the construction process to successfully meet the Owner’s Project Requirements.
