HVAC & ELECTRICAL COMMISSIONING AND RETRO-COMMISSIONING SERVICES
TPS, LLC provides superior HVAC and Associated Direct Digital Controls Commissioning and Re-Commissioning services when compared to both small and large businesses providing similar services. This is the result of exceptionally large and uncommon amount of cumulative years experience associated with our staff.
We have continuously successfully executed and provided all aspects of the submittals and work activities associated with the requirements and services of current Commissioning Programs required by LEED and the Green Building Counsel, as well as industry norms such as NEBB, ASHRAE, AABC and SMACNA. More significantly, all have played a partnering role in the evolution of these standards through the last 15 to 20 years.
Our staff participated in the development of protocol that was and continues to be used for in-house commissioning services with NAVFAC Atlantic. The submittal and work activities program is also currently used by other branches of the Department of Defense community. Our personnel possess the knowledge and experience of what consistently are unresolved issues in achieving the successful set-up and operation of the HVAC system in a new facility. With this knowledge and experience in our design group our Constructability Review and Value Engineering services are superior to those typically offered. We know what works, what doesn’t and what features can be provided in a design using an alternate means/equipment for a fraction of the cost.
While having this advantageous historical knowledge and experience in HVAC and Electrical Systems Commissioning all of our personnel maintain current certifications.
