Existing Building Commissioning is one of the services I provide for my clients. Sometimes new buildings aren't in the budget, so re-designing what you have to accommodate the changes needed is your only option. This can be a good thing for your company and facility department. EBCx Process provides an opportunity to do more of the process with your staff. My responsibility is to supply guidance and support through the phases of the project - Planning, Design, Scope, Project Responsibilities and Training, always focusing on meeting Customer Project Requirements. I focus on the goals of the project as planned while the Customer has the responsibility to oversee the project. What are some of the Benefits? Less costs for change orders, In-house staff takes ownership, schedule/budget is under your charge and more. See www.facmanconsulting.com for articles on Commissioning.
Improving Facility O&M departments is the reason I started my business. I worked with all levels of Educational Institutions, the US Government, the US Military, Healthcare Sites, Churches, Process Plants, Office Buildings, Manufacturing Facilities and Power Houses, to name a few. I utilize my knowledge and experience as a Facility, Construction and Maintenance Manager, as well as a Mechanic at various facilities around the US, to educate and train your staff. I have a Certification in Building Commissioning as a QCxP (Qualified Commissioning Process Provider), with a focus on Existing Buildings. My goal is to work with Facility and Maintenance Departments, by guiding them through a process utilizing in-house personnel to do as much work as possible on your building commissioning project. There will be a need for training, as well as contracting out what can't be done by your site personnel. This process develops your maintenance staff to understand more about your equipment and operations. It is slower than contracting, but provides more rewarding outcomes for your company. Your staff now knows the systems and all associated equipment more than your contractors will. That is what give you a successful operations and maintenance department.
My desire is to assist customers and contractors locally, but I also travel the US supporting my clients as required. View my web site for additional services that I can provide.
