By working toward sound delivery early, commissioning can significantly reduce the number of problems. This results in fewer crises and a handover that is easier and where attention can be paid to the handover instead of the remaining issues. For a number of years, Valstar Simonis has had commissioning managers in-house to properly supervise the process. For some clients, eg. Schiphol Airport, they have recently successfully completed an entire commissioning process.
From a BREEAM perspective, commissioning is a requirement. In addition to the technical functioning, it also guarantees the comfort of the final users and the energy performance of the building. We have certified commissioning managers who are also BREEAM experts and can fulfill this role simultaneously. However, even for projects where BREEAM is not applied, the commissioning manager offers his added value: installations function demonstrably more efficiently.
