Isotherm’s team specializes in Existing Building Commissioning (EBCx) which is a generic form for Retro-Commissioning or Re-Commissioning.  Retro-commissioning is a one-time commissioning process that applies to existing buildings that were not commissioned originally. Re-Commissioning (RCx) is a  commissioning process that re-optimizes existing buildings, that have already been either commissioned or retro-commissioned.

Typical benefits of our EBCx projects are:

  • Identify equipment & systems deficiencies
  • Identify equipment & systems inefficiencies, optimize efficiencies and overall performance
  • Improve thermal comfort and Reduce tenants' comfort issues/complaints 
  • Reduce high O&M costs 
  • Reduce premature replacement costs
  • Identify Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) issues and help to address them
  • Identify low-cost/no-cost energy-saving measures
  • Provide persistence strategies to ensure benefits remain over the time

A typical and well-planned EBCx approach can be executed in five phases. However, there are different factors that may affect the commissioning scope of work and how EBCx may be executed in phases.

Our approach can cover the following phases:

  • Planning 
  • Investigation 
  • Implementation 
  • Hands-Off 
  • Ongoing Commissioning
