In this CIR, we are asking for a clarification on whether this firm meets the experience requirements for it to provide CxA services on the project described below for its compliance with the LEED prerequisite, which requires that the CxA shall have commissioning authority experience on at least two building projects. The project to be commissioned is a proposed 3,000 Sf (+-) Bath House facility at a Town owner Pool/Park complex in New York. The Bath House building has no HVAC system, except for an exhaust fan system. Its construction will require the demolition of an existing building. Our firm has 49 years of design, construction and startup phase experience on numerous projects having similar or larger managerial and technical complexities required for the Bath House. Our firm has provided construction management (CM) services for various NY State, County and municipal projects in New York. Those services include design review and oversight, LEED review and oversight, constructability reviews and value engineering reviews, prepare and review cost estimates, assuring contractor complies with design intent and construction contract documents, work progress inspection and monitoring, quality assurance and start-up system testing, commissioning and commissioning oversight, post construction monitoring, construction trades employers, etc. Our recent experience includes such services for Suffolk County, New York's proposed LEED certified, $15 million, 36,000 SF Police Precinct building; the $35 million, 72,000 SF Trump On The Ocean Catering Facility, at Jones Beach, NY (also pursuing LEED certification); the Town of Hempstead, $5 million Hewlett Point Park Pool Complex; the $35 million, 200,000 SF renovation and addition of the Riverhead, NY Supreme Court building; the $55 million, 260,000 SF DASNY Health Technology Center, in Brentwood, NY; the $25 million, 150,000 SF Skilled Nursing Home Facility, in Yaphank, NY, and the new $140 million Correctional Facility in Yaphank, NY, among others. Our firm also provides engineering and architectural design services. Design services include site, building, energy, HVAC and controls systems, etc. Our staff includes professional Mechanical, Electrical, Civil and Structural Engineers, Registered Architects and LEED Accredited Professionals. Our personnel have extensive experience in energy systems design, installation, performance and operation. We also perform on-site, hands on inspections of the energy systems including start-up, testing balancing, troubleshooting, operation, and maintenance procedures. In this specific case, our firm is not involved in the design or construction management phases of this LEED registered project. As the CxA, our firm will review and verify design and monitor construction and will perform the requirements of the Fundamental Commissioning of the Building Energy Systems.
Assuming your firm provided commissioning services on at least 2 of the projects listed, you qualify to serve as the CxA for the bath house project. Your description indicates that you are not part of the design or construction team, and you list multiple relevant projects, thus the eligibility requirements are satisfied. Applicable Internationally.
