Commissioning (Cx)

Commissioning is a crucial process that ensures that building systems operate according to the owner’s intent and that they are efficient, reliable, and sustainable. JP Harvey Engineering Solutions’ team of commissioning professionals and energy engineers provides comprehensive commissioning services to ensure that your building operates at peak performance while minimizing your impact on the environment.


Commissioning is a third-party verification of a building’s energy-related systems to confirm that these systems are performing as set forth by the owner’s project requirements. A quality assurance-based process, commissioning delivers preventive and predictive maintenance plans, tailored operating manuals and training procedures for all users to follow. Our commissioning services are in accordance with LEED and are based on ASHRAE Guidelines,

  • Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC) Commissioning
  • Refrigeration and respective controls Commissioning
