Alabbar Energy and Sustainability Group (AESG), a leading consultancy in the Middle East, has expanded its portfolio of services with the setting up of a commissioning division.
The new division will provide independent commissioning services that are in line with Leed (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and Estidama requirements for both new and existing developments, said the UAE-based company.
These services will help increase safety and reduce capital and operational expenses while improving building efficiency by five to 10 per cent, it added.
“Over the past few years, projects in the region have grown in terms of scale and technical complexity. Commissioning is arguably the most critical aspect of the development cycle as it ensures that a building is handed over to operate safely, efficiently and in accordance with how the owner intended,” said Saeed Al Abbar, the director of AESG.
“Proper commissioning is not just a testing and verification process, but must start early in the project and continue until a comprehensive handover to the operations and maintenance team is achieved,” he stated.
With a team of fully qualified and experienced engineers and technicians, AESG said it offers third-party commissioning verification and commissioning management services throughout a project’s life-cycle, from pre-design through to retro commissioning.
The firm’s services include commissioning authority (CxA), commissioning management, Leed and Estidama commissioning (ICA), recommissioning (RCx) and specialist testing (Hepa filter, indoor air quality and room integrity).
