Beginning in early design, Paladin worked with Berea and the Design Team to identify robust Owner’s Project Requirements for the project.
From early design reviews through warranty phase performance reviews, system performance was verified, and corrective action items worked as a team.
Areas requiring special attention during testing included the custom manufactured windows. Upon initial test failure, the manufacturer, installing contractor, construction manager, commissioning provider, and owner representatives worked in combination to identify sources of water leakage. Field modifications as well as proper manufacturer installation details allowed the showpiece windows to be both beautiful as well as functional.
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 required to make the equipment function properly.
Extensive transition documentation and services encompassed custom designed system overview training sessions for Berea’s maintenance staff. Systems manuals, ongoing commissioning plans, equipment inventory lists, and equipment-specific preventative maintenance schedules complete the close-out documents provided by this commissioning process.
