Construction, Startup & Commissioning:
Finding Your Best Solution

As one of the premier engineering design firms in the country, Burns & McDonnell has an in-depth knowledge of the various aspects of facility design and construction. Our Construction/Design-Build Group builds more than $500 million in construction per year.

In addition, our commissioning team has benefited from exposure to a variety of project types, including government, institutional, educational, healthcare, labs, central utility plants, and combined heat and power.

Planning for Commissioning Success

Our commissioning process begins at the pre-design stage and sets important performance goals early in the process. We perform rigorous functional testing and inspections to validate system performance and help train your operations staff and provide solid documentation to assist with continuous commissioning of the systems. Our commissioning services can significantly improve the reliability and performance of your new or renovated system.

At the end of the project, when the "keys are turned over," your team is trained to operate and maintain your systems effectively and efficiently for the long term.
