Beginning in early design, Paladin worked with Berea and the design team to identify robust Owner’s Project Requirements.
From early design reviews through warranty phase performance reviews, system performance was verified and corrective action items taken.
During testing, the custom-manufactured windows required special attention. Upon initial test failure, the manufacturer, installing contractor, construction manager, commissioning provider, and owner representatives worked in combination to identify the sources of water leakage. Field modifications as well as proper manufacturer installation details allowed the showpiece windows to be functional as well as beautiful.
For the mechanical systems, the interplay between the central plant chilled water supply and chilled beam operating conditions required significant coordination in order to meet required differential pressure setpoint for the equipment to function properly.
Extensive transition documentation and services encompassed custom-designed system overview training sessions for Berea’s maintenance staff. Paladin provided systems manuals, ongoing commissioning plans, equipment inventory lists, and equipment-specific preventative maintenance schedules to complete the close-out documents.
