We provide comprehensive analysis, data, design, and implementation
services for new and existing buildings throughout their lifecycle.
Our integrated engineering approach can help you reduce your carbon
footprint and lower your operating costs.
Commissioning (Cx) services are essential to the delivery of a quality energy
efficiency project, whether on an entire building or for major new installations.
As your Commissioning Agent (CxA) DCM tests energy systems and
equipment in new construction projects to ensure that all energy related
systems are operating according to their optimized design specifications and
meet the owner's requirements in the most energy-efficient manner possible.
Our services fulfill both the fundamental and enhanced commissioning
requirements under the US Green Building Council's (USGBC) LEED Core and Shell program.
Retro-commissioning (RCx), or re-commissioning, consists of assessing
existing facilities’ systems after several years in service to recommend
measures to improve efficiency operations. As an RCx agent for owners and
operators, we apply proven investigative techniques to identify
underperforming operating systems and equipment and to determine the root
cause of persistent operational problems.
We then work with building owners, managers, ESCOs, the owner's
contractors and others to establish clear goals prior to the design and
implementation of equipment, control systems, or operating procedures.
The Retro-Cx process typically identifies low- and no-cost energy savings
measures that provide high value and quick ROIs.
Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED)
LEED modeling services help building owners to achieve USGBC LEED
certification. Nexant provides technical support for projects pursuing
certification by the USGBC LEED program. Our LEED modeling services help
facility owners and developers achieve certification under the LEED New
Construction, LEED for Core and Shell and LEED for Existing Buildings O&M
We support LEED credits in three categories:
(1) Energy and atmosphere,
2) Indoor environmental quality and
(3) Innovation and design process. Our services will fulfill both the
Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning requirements under the LEED
Core and Shell program.
DCM is a strong advocate of better building design through Commissioning
and LEED certification.
