Commissioning Management Services (CxMS)
we use cloud and mobile technologies and your own facility staff to remotely manage Cx activities at a lower cost
What Is CxMS?
With Commissioning Management Services (CxMS), clients across the world can take full advantage of P2S Cx expertise. CxMS uses cloud and mobile technologies along with limited, highly focused site visits to manage the Cx process and Cx deliverables, no matter where clients are located. Using onsite staff to perform every day Cx tasks, P2S can manage the Cx process offsite, all while providing the high-level quality assurance we’re known for.
What can CxMS deliver?
CxMS can cover all standard Cx activities, from pre-design to the end of the warranty period. P2S uses technology infrastructure to capture data and develop Cx deliverables, all while managing scheduling reviews, checklists and testing. CxMS plans are tailored to customer needs to minimize costs and maximize resources and training. By having onsite staff perform Cx tasks, owners benefit from better-trained staff who are prepared to operate and maintain systems and equipment.
Why CxMS with P2S?
CxMS minimizes Cx costs by delegating everyday tasks to onsite staff. Clients save money and their staff gain training. On top of that, P2S Cx is well known for its top-quality services and extremely qualified staff. Our Cx staff can rely on P2S MEPT engineers and construction managers when providing CxMS so clients can rest assure any issues will be addressed by expert professionals.
James J. Peters Bronx VA Medical Center, Independent Cx Review
The Bronx, New York
P2S Cx is providing independent commissioning review for the Design-Build team working on energy efficiency upgrades at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center, a comprehensive teaching and research hospital with 311 hospital beds and 120 nursing home beds in Bronx, New York. P2S is serving as the Commissioning Oversight Manager (Cx-O), acting as an owner representative. Our team is ensuring that the CxA fulfills all relevant duties.
The $59 million worth of improvements include efficiency upgrades to the chiller plant, building automation system (BAS) and energy management system (EMS) controls, the HVAC system, lighting, steam distribution system and electric motors and drives. On such a broad and large scale project, coordination and close review of deliverables are key. The challenge was to keep a close eye out for any irregularities in the commissioning process, provide recommendations, track submittals, give technical assistance and provide basic factory acceptance to the full range of Cx support. As a 3rd party responsible for the quality of commissioning deliverables, we reviewed and commented on the project design, organized Cx activities, ensured submittal conformance to the construction documents, coordinated the functional conformance testing schedule, verified seasonal testing, reviewed O&M documentation and training program. We reviewed the controls system to identify any system integration deficiencies and our team went on several site visits to perform on-site assessments to verify the installed systems. We also provided an interim construction review report and will deliver a final commissioning oversight report to the owner. P2S is continuing to work with the energy savings performance contractor (ESCO) team to ensure project deliverables are met and are of consistently high quality.
