In his YouTube video debut, Ring & DuChateau Partner and Senior Commissioning Provider Dave Guberud had the opportunity to explain the commissioning process and what it meant for the new Secura Insurance Corporate Headquarters in the Village of Fox Crossing.
“First off, commissioning is making sure a building, when it’s turned over, is actually meeting the owner’s intent,” Guberud explained about the process that tests the HVAC systems function of the building, including chillers, boilers, air handling units and ventilation systems. He noted that the timeline for this particular project was longer than he normally sees, which meant that contractors were able to take the time to do things right.
“With the time that the contractors have taken, and our processes of documentation, we are very confident that there will be virtually no issues at the turnover of this project,” Guberud concluded.
In addition to Ring & DuChateau, project partners for the facility include Eppstein Uhen Architects, Affiliated Engineers, CD Smith, Faith Technologies, August Winters and JF Ahern. The 300,000 square foot facility, the largest office building in the village, opened to workers in October. The video was created in three off-the-cuff takes and presented to the Secura Board of Directors as a construction update prior to the facility opening.
