With our comprehensive industry experience, LXC Engineering Group offers a variety of commissioning services to meet the individual needs of our clients. Our services are performed by Industry Experts, recognized for successful, quality product, on-time execution, and cost-effective, flexible solutions.
Commissioning is possibly the most important activity in the construction process, as it ensures that the mechanical and electrical installations and services have achieved the operational conditions desired by both the designer and end-user.
LXCEG has a deep understanding and knowledge that stems from years of experience commissioning a full range of diverse buildings types. Our familiarity with power transformers, switch gears, substation auxiliary equipment, fiber optic cables, and control systems has provided us the ability to develop benchmarks in the market, increasing our number of potential clients. Our testing and commissioning services apply to any building type.
Once commissioning is complete, we present our client a fully operational building with all test results for the services we have provided documented and witnessed. Every client receives full operating and maintenance instructions and their maintenance staff is fully trained in efficient operation and given a schedule of recommended maintenance tasks. Any subsequent issues or defects can be quickly identified, and solutions offered by referring to the operation and maintenance manuals and test results.
Based on LXCEG’s experiences, we have developed a standardized approach to commissioning to ensure not only the minimum overall quality of a project, but also the improved performance as a direct result of staff familiarization. Standardization enables us to resource more efficiently and prepare for unforeseen issues therefore preventing most problems before they arise, with minimum disruption to both the client and project.
We do not believe that commissioning is a one-off exercise simply to ready a building for occupation. The initial commissioning is vitally important if the installed systems are to operate in accordance with the specifications. However, changing occupancy needs, space utilization, refurbishment and routine decommissioning by maintenance staff will always affect the operating efficiency and, ultimately, the disposition of the occupants.
However, a strategy of “continuous commissioning” must be employed and is an ongoing process to resolve operating problems, improve comfort and efficiency, and optimize energy use. These efforts have produced energy savings of 20% with typical payback periods of less than three years.
