As an integrater of mechanical systems and as a mechanical contractor EMSI will bring together all aspects and components of a mechanical system to function as a complete operating mechanical system. These include:
1. Understanding and applying the Owner & Architect’s project requirements (OAPR)
2. Mechanical Engineers Design and Intent (DI):
o Owners and Architects hire professional engineers to design mechanical systems to meet their requirements. EMSI will integrate and install to the mechanical engineers design.
3. Installation of all mechanical equipment including:
o Also including related skills and professions such as:
§ TAB: Certified balancing of air and water side systems
4. Pre-functional and functional performance testing of components, systems and all major mechanical equipment.
§ Prior to installation EMSI will verify that all equipment and components are as submitted and approved by the design team.
§ Upon receiving materials and equipment we will verify that they are as submitted and approved.
§ Install by applying state of the art standards and practices of the industry.
§ Clean, leak check, flush, fill, point to point check controls, TAB, startup systems and equipment for functional performance testing.
o Functional performance testing:
§ Compile all design requirements for flows (cfm, gpm), static pressure, fluid head, electrical (voltage & amperage), and equipment manufacturer’s submittal for use by startup and functional performance testing personnel.
§ Coordinate startup team for all equipment and systems.
§ Make sure a load for functional performance testing is available
§ Test and record functional performance of all components (air units, pumps, chillers, fans, VAV, etc) and systems to verify all meet the design as well as the owner and architect’s project requirements.
5. Post installation and follow up:
o Turnover and acceptance:
§ Acquire sign off by general contractors, designers, architects and owner that mechanical systems are installed, complete and functional per design and OAPR.
§ Provide one year labor and equipment warranty or as called for in specifications.
o Service and maintenance:
§ Even though there is a warranty period for systems and equipment just as an automobile they need to be maintained to the manufacturer’s recommendations to keep warranty intact. EMSI is a full service mechanical contractor prepared to provide at a fee upon the owners request the required ongoing service and maintenance to keep equipment manufacturer’s warranty intact.
§ 24/7 on call service:
¨ As a full service contractor we have trained technicians on staff available to respond any time of day or night. Therefore if at any time during the warranty period any of our installed systems has an unplanned shut down EMSI will send a technician to troubleshoot and investigate, and call in any necessary personnel to solve the problem.
6. Commissioning (Cx)
o Here at EMSI we are aware that the State of California has instituted the new California Green Building Standards Code, CCR, Title 24, Part 11 that requires commissioning for new projects over 10,000 sq. ft., which requires a third party commissioning agent. This agent acts as the owner or architect’s advocate verifying that all systems are installed and function per the design. EMSI has been called upon by commissioning agents for testing and verification therefore we know what is required by commissioning agents. We are prepared to provide all required tasks and data as called for in the commissioning specification.
