The C.E.S. Difference

The CES Difference

Synergy

Our core services (total building commissioning, energy systems measurements and verifications, energy analysis and modeling) interact synergistically facilitating the holistic approach to the building systems commissioning.

Total Building Commissioning

We are expanding commissioning services to other building systems apart from HVAC systems. These include building envelope, electrical distribution and lighting systems, communication and technology systems. Utilizing Total Building Commissioning we recognize the integrated nature of all building systems’ performances, which impact sustainability, workforce productivity, occupant comfort and safety and security.

Combination of Design and “Hands on” Commissioning Experience

We provide expert engineering consulting and hands-on commissioning services in all phases of the commissioning process. We have all testing instruments required for hands on testing and verification of HVAC and other building systems. Existing and/or new facility systems performance surveys are completed with in-house testing, measuring tools and manpower.

Retrofit Design Services

Our personnel experience includes over one hundred retrofit projects, ranging from simple tenant improvements to complex multi-million dollar projects. We provide a full range of mechanical and electrical engineering services (reports, feasibility studies, design), building permits and tendering services, preparation of construction documents, project management services, review of the construction progress and quality assurance, advice on payments, project cost control and budget estimates, advice on various aspects of construction contracts as well as expertise in managing and administrating incentive applications.

Energy Studies and Energy Modeling

C.E.S. Engineering possesses comprehensive knowledge and experience in a variety of energy modeling computer programs and in creating calibrated energy simulations. We have created custom-made calculation tools to improve and streamline the analysis process, which utilizes inverse modeling techniques. The company portfolio includes energy study and modeling services for health care and research laboratory facilities, as well as commercial and residential buildings.

Performance Measurement and Verification Specialization

C.E.S. Engineering is an industry leader in building systems sub-metering, data collection, reporting and analysis. The company provides comprehensive measurement and verification services in line with LEED M&V credit requirements, following key M&V guidelines and protocols. Our M&V services portfolio projects includes health care facilities, research laboratories, post-secondary, secondary and primary schools and institutional buildings.
We have provided M&V services in line with:

  • Option B (retrofit isolation) from the 2002 International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) Volume I, concept and options for determining energy and water savings
  • Option C (Whole Building) from the 2002 International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) Volume I, concept and options for determining energy and water savings
  • Option D from the 2006 International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) Volume III, concept and options for determining energy savings in new construction and with LEED EA Credit 5, Measurement and Verification requirements..

Personnel Experience, Education and Accreditation

All our commissioning providers are Registered Professional Engineers, eligible for Professional Engineers registration or Applied Science Technologists.

All commissioning engineers are certified measurement and verification professionals and LEED Accredited Professionals.

All our commissioning providers have experience in building systems design.

Our principals give commissioning presentations and training at technical colleges and for industry programs.
