Startup, Testing & Commissioning

Atlantis Comfort feels that commissioning is a vital and key component of a successful project and is instrumental in shifting our focus from a "reactive" warranty-driven contractor, to a "proactive" commissioned project contractor.

The delivery of a 100% certified system with all equipment items started and operationally verified, all test and balance reports scrutinized, and all control sequences documented means that your system will produce the designed and desired results. As a certified test and balance contractor and a certified controls contractor, Atlantis Comfort has the tools to insure system performance.

Commissioning Purpose

  • To help insure that the contract has been fulfilled in a "Best of Class" manner and that HVAC Systems comply with their specific design parameters.
  • The verification of work completion before Start-Up.
  • Stress the necessity of User involvement.
  • To obtain a comfort level of our clients and their Consultants.

Commissioning Benefits

For the Owner:

All equipment and systems are thoroughly checked to assure optimum performance. Field Installation Verification sheets are included with the closeout documents so that the owner will have documentation that all systems were reviewed. The owner can be assured that when start-up begins all system related equipment would be ready.

For the General Contractor

Atlantis Comfort Field Installation Verification will make the start-up process go smoother for the the General Contractor who can rest assured that they have hired a competent and thorough HVAC subcontractor. This will increase the GC opportunity to procure repeat business with the owner.

For the Engineer:

Commissioning of the HVAC system will provide reassurance to the engineers that their systems work as they intended. In addition, it will assist them in identifying deficiencies in their design that were overlooked. As a result, a proper solution can be reached.

For Atlantis Comfort:

Commissioning our installations is a more thorough approach to working out any issues in the systems we install. It also allows us to greatly minimize punch list items resulting in a more efficient closeout of the project. In addition, it gives the owner and Construction Manager a "value added" service that they may not get from other mechanical contractors. Finally, commissioning should greatly reduce the number of "call backs" to the project.
