Statewide System Commissioning
Ohio School Facilities Commission

 

STAN has been selected by OSFC as an approved Commissioning Agent since the inception of the program in January 2005.  We were instrumental in development of the scope of services and statewide standards.  The scope originally included thorough design reviews, development of the commissioning specification, test plan and forms, functional testing of the HVAC systems/controls and electrical systems, seasonal testing, final warranty review and project closeout. 

The scope was modified in 2009 to include LEED Fundamental/Enhanced and Building Envelope Commissioning, and again in 2012 to include building envelope thermal imaging and maintenance plan services.

 

To date, STAN has been selected by 105 school districts statewide to commission a total of 28,699,642 square feet of new and retrofit facilities.  These projects are in various stages, ranging from early design phase to completed projects. 

 

Our selection by so many districts in this competitive process demonstrates the high quality of our staff as well as the success of our commissioning philosophy.
