Kelcroft helps your organisation verify that the delivered product, in this case the building, is operating as intended before handover.

Kelcroft acts as the independent oversight of the contractors commissioning process, starting from reviewing commissionability, the contractors commissioning plan, reviewing the commissioning fieldwork, T&s;C record keeping and the commissioning report.

The construction of new buildings is somewhat uniquie in that each building is different, and each has different set of complex engineering systems. In Asia, all hotels, and commercial buildings have air conditioning systems, but the type and configuration varies from building to building, so each is an individual.

At the commencement of a project time is normally allocated in the master programme for Testing and Commissioning, but delays occur, the float is used, but the pressure to deliver the project on time erodes that critical time allowed for T&C to almost zero.

And under modern contracts were all the duties and resposibilities rest on one contractor its difficult for the building owner to understand the deepth and breath of the T&C processes until after handover, and at that stage it is too late.

Engaging Kelcroft for commissioning management gives the building owner piece of mind, someone is independently monitoring the on-going commissioning, following the commissioning plan, monitoring and validating the T&C records.

Retro Commissioning (RCx)

What is Retro-Commissioning? Retro-commissioning (RCX) is the term used to re-adjust, re-balance existing engineering systems in existing buildings, such that the engineering systems operate as orginally intended.

During our energy audit work we have found that engineering systems have been changed, updated and modified, sometimes incorrectly components have been replaced with a different rating, air handler fan speeds changed, automatic controls modified, etc.

These modifications can be a source for excessive energy consumption, and its the intent of retro-commissioning to correct and restore the installation, to learn more about retro-commissioning ...continue here
