SCS Engineers’ commissioning (Cx) and retro-commissioning (RCx) processes uncover conditions which impact the well-being of occupants and the efficient performance of the facility.
SCS’ Cx and RCx services include analyzing the major mechanical systems to identify opportunities for improvement in control strategies, physical conditions, and operational practices. In addition to saving energy, these steps reduce the costs of operating and maintaining a facility while improving occupant comfort and safety.
SCS provides Cx and RCx for healthcare, research, and laboratory facilities, as well as commercial buildings and educational institutions. We also conduct Cx and RCx operations for Federal, state, and municipal governments.
SCS’s staff can identify energy-saving opportunities in a variety of areas, including:
