MEP Engineering Providing Mandatory IECC Commissioning Services to Office Tenant Improvement Market

DENVER – MEP Engineering has announced enhancements to the firm’s commissioning services, for property managers and owners who are now required to present commissioning reports to local jurisdictions, as an outcome of the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) adoption.  The 2015 IECC is mandating independent commissioning for most projects that ensures that mechanical and electrical equipment has been designed and installed correctly and is operating at peak performance prior to tenant occupancy.

“The 2015 IECC is impacting office properties where tenant improvement work is nearing completion, but a property manager, owner and/or General Contractor are unaware of the requirement to have a completed commissioning report,” said Mitchell Sawin of MEP Engineering, the person heading-up the firm’s commissioning services team.  “This is resulting in failed final inspections, no certificate of occupancy and the property manager is unable to turnover their space to tenants.  It is a costly oversight on many fronts, including lost time and construction budget overages.”

MEP Engineering’s new IECC 2015 Commissioning Services include:

  • Final IECC 2015 Commissioning Report
  • Functional performance testing
  • Project design review to ensure code and building standard compliance
  • Trouble shooting on-site project problems.

Sawin continued: “The critical concern of the 2015 IECC Commissioning is the impact on the office tenant improvement market.  Our team is actively working with Jurisdictions to understand their requirements to meet this code. We’ve staffed our team to respond immediately to help property managers deliver on time.”
