In “Catching Hidden Costs: A Commissioning Story,” Professional System Analysis, Inc. looks at how commissioning services can eliminate problems that would lead to additional operating expenses.

Victor Lakoseljak of VPG Associates Limited discusses at the high-speed construction industry and how that can lead to deficiencies that hinder testing and balancing.

Environmental Test & Balance Company’s Sean Green, TBE, goes over a case study where an automatic low control valve was malfunctioning.

Zohar Davidovich of Airdronics Inc. presents the case for how crucial proper ire damper inspection is in the safety of a building.

Justin Garner, P.E., TBE, CxA, of Engineered Air Balance Co., Inc., discusses electrical hazards that may be present when performing TAB and commissioning work.

Griffin Air Balance’s Shawn Griffin, TBS, presents a case study that involved fume hood testing for a multi-story science building.

Kane Lassiter, TBE, of Engineered Air Balance Co., Inc., looks at a project that required balancing several variable volume grease hoods and fan systems.
