A good engineering design is just one step to ensuring your building project will work as intended. Given the enormous investment of time and money that goes into a new facility, upgrade, retrofit or expansion, the risk is too high to leave proper operation to chance. This is why commissioning is a vital part of any project.
GBA, along with our affiliate firm, ViroCon, has become a leader in the commissioning industry by focusing on making systems work.
Some commissioning firms focus on the process – filling out the forms and paperwork. While documentation is critical to a reliable facility, we also provide a full staff of experienced professional engineers, architects, and technicians who have the knowledge and hands-on experience to make your facility work as intended.
Most of our staff focus on areas of specific technical expertise. Whether it is HVAC balancing, building automation, electrical distribution, switchgear controls, or fire protection and suppression, we have technical experts experienced in the nuances of these systems.
Since 1984, we have focused on building systems with special requirements including data centers, telecom central offices, laboratories, correctional facilities, industrial facilities, and biopharmaceutical manufacturing operations.
Our primary focus is finding and correcting problems so that we can achieve our goal: to provide building systems that operate properly to meet the needs of the owner and user. GBA provides the following services:
