Constructing a new building offers plenty of anticipation. Will it meet my goals? Will it be completed on time and within budget? Will the mechanical and electrical systems be sufficient? Will it be ready for occupancy on Day 1? Knowing the answers to these questions - before the project even begins - is what Farnsworth Group's commissioning process is all about.

Farnsworth Group's Commissioning experts understand building design and construction. They also know that successful buildings don't happen by accident. It requires a well-planned systematic approach, with clearly defined goals and open communication between the building owner, architects, engineers and contractors.

Whether trying to achieve LEED® certification or simply desire Commissioning guidance, Farnsworth Group specializes in the Commissioning process. We use an integrated commissioning approach using the expertise of our design, construction, facilities and sustainable teams. We are champions of each project, and strive to represent the best interests of the project owner to ensure their investment and facility goals are achieved.

To accomplish this, we've developed a Total Building Commissioning approach that provides owners with best practices on how to procure and operate new facilities. Our approach offers many benefits, including usable documentation, well-trained staff, and most importantly, a high-quality functional facility that meets the owner's needs.
