Commissioning

In our capacity as building commissioning agents, we evaluate all aspects of the building enclosure system. We are intimately informed on performance standards, having been actively involved in their development for both the Building Enclosure Commissioning (BECx) and the evaluation of snow and ice accretion on buildings.

As Architects and Engineers we can find the deficiencies because we have designed solutions.

The Bell & Spina Process:

INVESTIGATION

We begin every potential project with a thorough inspection, examining all available documents and schematics -- plumbing, electrical, mechanical, drainage and more.

DIAGNOSIS

After our exhaustive investigation, we diagnose the needs, priorities, and solutions necessary to achieve our client's objectives.

OPTIONS

We always attempt to offer options that may be scalable to budget or performed in stages that allow us to deliver a successful solution without compromising quality.

IMPLEMENTATION

When it is time to commence the construction or remediation, clients are fully informed of the scope, sequence, and style of the approach we will pursue.

SUPPORT

We pride ourselves in providing extended and extensive support as needed from the start of a project through any follow up the client may seek.
