UNVC is a complete building commissioning provider serving the Intermountain West, including Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. Our roots started in Facilities Management over 20 years ago and have grown to encompass a whole host of professional services primarily anchored in Building Systems Commissioning, Enclosure Commissioning, Energy Engineering, and Facilities Optimization.
Owner’s hire UNVC to ensure their buildings work as expected. We then partner with facilities management, building operators, architects, engineers, contractors, and sub-contractors to bring to reality a well optimized building.
If the following questions are being asked it is likely we can help prevent significant issues in your project.
Can your building be easily maintained?
Is the equipment accessible?
Are the building operators anxious for the warranty period to end so they can “fix” the new building?
Is the building uncomfortable?
Is the building bringing in large amounts of outside air without relieving any?
Is the building struggling to meet design set points?
Is the demand charge on the utility bill excessive?
Is the energy usage of the building understood and used to inform building operations?
Did the building get certified, yet other buildings seem to run better?
Are the building systems over-sized or under-sized?
Did the premium for energy efficiency have a positive return on investment?
Does the building have moisture related problems?
Was 100% of the equipment and related systems fully checked out and functional prior to release of full payment?
Are the heating or cooling systems running at the wrong time of year?
Should the campus plant system have more capacity?
Do the systems in the new addition work well with the existing building?
Does it seem that the building never worked quite as it should?
Are the enclosure, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems being designed for the building appropriate for the budget, the life-cycle of the building, and the intended use?
