EAB’s ACG Involvement
Engineered Air Balance (EAB) takes great pride in being an AABC Commissioning Group charter member. As a founding member of the organization, EAB has been at the forefront of driving excellence and promoting best practices in the field of building commissioning.
EAB plays an active role in ACG by serving in leadership positions and on committees. Engineered Air Balance’s highly skilled professionals contribute their expertise to progress ACG’s technical documentation, ensuring it reflects the latest advancements in the field. By actively participating in developing guidelines and standards, EAB helps drive continuous improvement in building commissioning practices.
EAB Vice President Justin Garner has served on the ACG Certification Council since 2014 and has been Chairman since 2016. This council continues to update and evolve the exams and certification program. The CxA Certification is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and is a recognized certification by the Department of Energy’s Better Buildings® Workforce Guidelines program. The CxA Certification is considered an approved commissioning credential for federally funded projects, and this combination of ANSI accreditation and Better Buildings recognition means that state or local jurisdiction, code organizations, or others are using an industry-accepted, third-party company. Moreover, Justin Garner is an active member of the ACG Building Systems Guideline Committee, which offers best practices for executing the ASHRAE Standard 202, “Commissioning Process for Building and Systems,” process with details for commissioning specific types of buildings systems, along with insight and strategies from experienced commissioning providers.
