Commissioning, Energy Audits & Operational Assessments
New Construction and Existing Building Commissioning
Commissioning minimizes the negative impact buildings have on the environment by verifying the mechanical systems are designed and constructed to operate as intended. When considering the long-term benefits, commissioning is a cost-effective way to ensure the project building is aligned for energy efficient success and that success continues throughout the building’s life cycle. We are responsible for every aspect of pre-assessment and commissioning. We lead, review and oversee the completion of the commissioning process and serve as an objective advocate for the owner.
Building and Facility Audits
A building or facility audit identifies opportunities for efficiency and operational improvements in existing buildings. Rivion has completed more than 100 energy efficiency audits and follows the two-step process outlined in ASHRAE. We do not represent a product provider, installer or utility company, allowing for an unbiased energy analysis.
Rivion employs the latest technologies and survey methodologies to ensure our clients’ operations and systems run as efficiently and intelligently as possible. Operational assessments uncover the most significant problems for building staff and occupants and identify opportunities for operational and maintenance improvements. Our team of experts has completed more than 100 operational audits over the past five years.
Rivion performs Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designed Integrated Building Evaluation and Assessment Models (I-BEAM) for building Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). I-BEAM updates and expands the EPA’s Building Air Quality guidance and was designed to be a comprehensive state-of-the art guidance for managing IAQ in buildings.
