Commissioning Process Keeps Project Team Unified for New Justice Center
Farnsworth Group is providing fundamental and enhanced commissioning, building envelope testing, and test and balance services for this new 11-story judicial center complex. This state-of-the-art facility will house 37 courtrooms and supporting spaces. Our team led Will County and project team to develop the building with an emphasis on sustainable design, ability to test and verify envelope performance, operations and maintenance, ease of movement and future expansion.
Our Building Envelope Commissioning (BECx) group has worked closely with the Owner and design team to ensure all aspects of the BECx process are understood and adhered. Through the BECx testing matrix incorporated into the specifications and drawings, all relevant parties are aware of the project’s testing requirements. Also, with the team following standard BECx guidelines (ASTM E2813, NIBS & ASHRAE), all parties are assured that there is no confusion on the process or testing procedures.
