By: Michael Sizemore, CxA,LEED GA – Allen & Shariff Engineering the Commissioning Authority

The Cirton Apartments project is a new five story, 222-unit apartment building. The MEP Systems were designed by Allen & Shariff Engineering to achieve the LEED “Silver” level of sustainability under the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. Allen & Shariff Commissioning was awarded the commissioning portion of the project to fulfill the requirements of Fundamental Building Systems Commissioning in support of Energy & Atmosphere (EA) Prerequisite 1 as described in the LEED NC Version 2.2.

Foulger-Pratt was awarded as the General Contractor with Bryce Long as the field Project Manager. For this project, team leader Glenn Johnson appointed Michael Sizemore – CxA as the lead and Nathan Iager – CxT to oversee the commissioning tasks for this project.

Commissioning is a process of verifying that building systems perform in accordance with the design intent. This is achieved by documenting the process beginning at the schematic design phase and continuing through construction and acceptance by verifying performance. The LEED commissioning process is intended to achieve, among other items, functional verification and operation of installed HVAC equipment and how they meet or exceed the Owner’s and LEED requirements.

On this project, there were several systems that were tested including: Electric Heat, Rooftop Units, Split System Heat Pumps, Fans, Ductless Split Systems, Lighting control, Domestic Water Heater Read the full post →
