Get a Building Check-up

Commissioning your existing building is like taking care of your own personal health.  If you were to ask someone on the street if it was a good idea to get an annual check-up they would say, “Yes”.  Why is that?  It is unlikely the person that was stopped was a doctor, but even without medical knowledge people know deep down that it is the right thing to do for a couple of reasons. 

First, it’s good to know that your body is healthy and that you can have the doctor verify that there isn’t something wrong that you didn’t notice.  In other words, you want a baseline to make sure that you are staying on track.  This is also true for your buildings.  You want to make sure that you have an established baseline to determine if your building in the future is performing better or worse.  Also if you think your building is operating well you want a professional to assure you that something isn’t going wrong that you just hadn’t noticed. 

Another reason that a periodic trip to the doctor is a good idea is that if you know something is starting to give you an issue, addressing something small early is better than fighting a big problem further down the road.  As a manager of a building, the last thing that you want is an emergency.  These types of problems are a drain on your time, are more expensive, and always happen at the worst time.  Nothing ruins a great time with family and friends more than an unexpected trip to your facility because something important just broke.

We can help avoid these situations.  Let us commission your building on a regular basis.  This will not only give you a baseline for performance, but it will also help save you from unexpected breakdowns.  So like a regular trip to the doctor, a regular visit from ECO Commissions is something that you know is just the right thing to do.
