Testing & Performance Verification

Testing the performance of indoor spaces is essential for identifying potential issues, optimizing the indoor environment, and ensuring that building occupants are provided with a healthy, comfortable, and productive workspace. Regular assessments can help address problems promptly, improve energy efficiency, and contribute to the overall sustainability of your space.

RCI provides an independent testing and performance verification service for your project no matter whether you're applying for certification or need assurance that your spaces are performing as intended.

Comissioning Cx &
Performance Verification

Commissioning and performance verification are essential processes in the lifecycle of a building, ensuring that its systems operate efficiently and meet the intended design and performance criteria. 

 

Commissioning is a systematic and thorough process that involves verifying and documenting that all building systems and components are designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained according to the owner's requirements and the project's specifications.

Performance verification involves assessing and confirming that the building systems and components continue to operate as intended after the commissioning process. It is an ongoing effort to monitor and maintain optimal performance throughout the building's lifecycle.
