MECHANICAL ENGINEERING & COMMISSIONINGAs a whole We analyze all the Mechanical component Systems
Mechanical Engineering is a major component of the Commissioning process.
Every building has a set of requirements that are necessary to develop a specific environment to meet the needs of the users and their purpose for the space. These carefully considered and designed spaces have tailored commissioning plans that cover functional testing the spectrum of all of the buildings system components (HVAC, Building Envelope, Energy Modelling, etc).
Our engineers provide innovative solutions to meet and exceed the current code requirements for building systems. These well controlled environments optimize occupant safety, energy efficiency while meeting design conditions.
The primary goal for sustainability and longevity of a building system is to minimize energy consumption, maintenance demands, and maximize the overall operations of the building. Orata’s team of engineers understand the complexities of the interactions involved between the multiple mechanical systems in industrial and commercial building projects.
Orata’s Mechanical Engineering team have extensive experience in the areas needed to provide Whole Building Commissioning, including the following:
Heating, ventilating comma and air conditioning systems (HVAC)
HVAC control /building automation systems
Central heating and cooling plants
Laboratory and clean room ventilation systems
Energy recovery systems
Process humidification systems
Functional testing of these mechanical systems is also a necessary skill for the Mechanical Engineering team to successfully apply Building Commissioning practices. Orata’s Mechanical Engineering team has the experience and expertise required to perform the functional testing on all Building Systems, including the following:
Air systems: Air handlers, VAVs, fan coils, phoenix valves, isolation rooms, boilers, chillers, dry cooler, reheat coils, and in-floor heat.
HVAC Systems: Chilled/Hot Water Plants, Air Handling Units, Energy Recovery, Ventilation Systems, Building Automation, Hydronic Pumping, Electrical Systems, Lighting Control Systems, Communication, Daylight Harvesting, Stand-by Power, Fire Alarm, Plumbing Systems, Hot Water Systems, Water Pumping, Piping Systems.
Orata’s Mechanical Engineering team will conduct Site Inspections with component verification and functional testing of all mechanical, electrical, and controls systems. We provide commissioning documentation with Professional Stamped Engineering reports containing analysis summaries, design recommendations, and final conclusions.
Understand the ever-changing industrial marketplace, from manufacturing to warehouse and distribution, our goal is to integrate practical solutions with new technologies. Orata’s Engineering teams had the capability to complete the most challenging industrial projects. Through close collaboration with client our design teams utilized its tested tools and methodologies to create an efficient and functional building.
Commissioning is a cost effective, low-risk way of lowering the overall energy costs for new and old buildings by increasing the energy efficiency. Our commissioning team supports new construction projects typically in accordance with LEED requirements, which include the following:
Including design reviews, preparing static and functional tests, performing extensive on-site functional tests, and report writing. Benefits of commissioning are not restricted to energy efficiency, there are multiple reasons that Commissioning practices may be beneficial, including the following:
User comfort and productivity
Indoor air quality
Maintenance expenses and equipment service life
Property value and capital assets
