Project details

  • BUA (Sq. Ft) : 100,000 Sq.ft
  • Services Offered: Building Commissioning Advisory Services
  • Project Status: Completed
  • Rating: IGBC Platinum EB

Project highlights:

The various innovative electro-mechanical systems & IT infrastructure is installed in the building and these systems are converged on a common Building Automation Platform to achieve the highest operational and energy efficiency.

The integration & commissioning of these complex systems was the biggest challenge and Ecofirst with it’s teams experience and expertise successfully completed the Building Commissioning Process to the utmost satisfaction of the building Owners.

Building Commissioning Objectives

  • Ensure that building systems and equipment are installed and function as per design intent to satisfy the owner's operational needs.
  • Enable 'Soft landings, a process that helps the smooth transition from handover to occupancy.
  • Prevent or eliminate problems inexpensively through proactive quality techniques.
  • Lower life-cycle costs for the owner.
  • Provide documentation and records on the design, construction, and testing to facilitate operation and maintenance of the facility.
  • Improve environmental/health conditions and occupant comfort
  • Maintain energy efficiency (pre-renovation the building was having Green Building Platinum Rating)
  • Perform Integrated System Testing (IST) to ensure safety of the occupants

Benefits Achieved

Some of the most important benefits achieved post commissioning:

  • Improved system and equipment function and realization of the existing capabilities of the systems (Performance testing of equipment, Optimum utilization of Building Automation System functions)
  • Enable 'Soft landings', a process that helps the transition from handover to occupancy
  • Enhanced environmental/health conditions and occupant comfort (Maintained desired Temperature, RH, Air Purity, Air Movements, CO2 level in the space)
  • Reduced energy consumptions and optimized operating costs ( Decreased energy consumption trends)
  • Improved building operation and maintenance (Set SOPs)
  • Increased occupant safety (IST)
  • Increased competence of in-house staff ( O&M Training)
  • Better building documentation (Handing Over Documents)
