Retro Commissioning is a process that improves the efficiency of an existing building’s equipment and systems. It can often resolve problems that occurred during design or construction, or address problems that have developed throughout the building’s life as equipment has aged, or as building usage has changed. Retro-Commissioning involves a systemic evaluation of opportunities to improve energy-using systems.
Why is Retro-Commissioning important?
Buildings frequently undergo operational and occupancy changed that challenge the mechanical, electrical and control systems, hindering optimal performance. In today’s complex buildings, systems are highly interactive,with sophisticated controls that can create a trickle-down effect on building operations — small problems have big effects on performance. All building scan experience performance degradation over time.
Hence, it is vital to constantly monitor the equipment and fix the errors that may be preventing optimal performance of the building.
Key Benefits of Retro-Commissioning

• Improved building operation
• Documented building condition and deficiencies
• A list of recommendations for improvements
• A road map for capital improvements
• Potentially reduced carbon footprint
