While healthcare facilities vary in size and complexity, the primary purpose of these facilities is to care for the well-being of people. The need for Healthcare Facility Commissioning is paramount to ensure the operation of a facility protects patients and staff in accordance with the engineering design intent and the goals of the building owner or operator.
EAB recognizes and understands the innate complexity of the HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and life safety systems in today’s modern healthcare facilities. Our dedicated Building Commissioning Team works to ensure the engineering design intent is achieved and maintained through the vital service of healthcare facility commissioning.
EAB proudly serves K-12 schools and has worked with over 100 school districts throughout the State of Texas.
Since the adoption of IECC 2015 by the State of Texas and other jurisdictions, the commissioning process is required to be performed by an independent firm on the HVAC, lighting, domestic hot water, and renewable energy systems in commercial buildings. EAB is uniquely suited to help Owners achieve compliance with this code requirement.
Through our experience in the K-12 industry, we realize the need for quick timelines that do not interfere with the students, administrative, or teachers’ schedules, and activities. With unmatched thoroughness and continuous reliability, our team efficiently delivers an optimum operating facility within the specified time frame.
