We understand that most builders like to rely on their internal design and services engineers to assist with construction queries and certifications.

 

However, by having a truly independent assessor to review your building from design through to construction and operation presents an opportunity to reduce defects, minimise costs and maintain programme.

CSI can support your on site project team and coordinate with clients, design team and sub-contractors to meet their needs.

CSI also specialises in building services commissioning management where we can assist in commissioning testing and fine tuning. CSI can create a commissioning plan and manage the commissioning process such that all contractors are on the same page. Furthermore, we can review on going system operation and as built documentation to comply with Green Star requirements.

Whether you are developing a new building or refurbishing an existing one, it is in your best interest to achieve the most energy efficient and sustainable building possible to ensure a positive impact on your new and existing tenants.

 

Achieving tenant satisfaction comes down to services management providing trouble free systems, occupant comfort and low energy costs. However, through our experiences, we have witnessed developers lacking solid in-house understanding of Building Services, which consists of Mechanical, Electrical, Communications, Security, Fire, Hydraulic and ESD.

CSI specialises in Building Services, with in-depth knowledge and experience in monitoring Builders and their Sub-contractors to overcome services issues and specific client changes. CSI will also monitor and review against the builder’s design intent to ensure contractual compliance.

CSI will act on behalf of developers, as an ICA with a primary goal to independently identify building system deficiencies as early in the project as possible and monitor their status until they are corrected upon completion providing the most efficient building systems and monitoring their ongoing performance.

Sustainable Buildings (Green Star)

With Green Star setting a new standard for all commercial and retail buildings, building developers are encouraged to achieve the most sustainable building practices.

By appointing an Independent Commissioning Agent (ICA) by the owner, building developers, project managers and tenants can be sure that the building has been commissioned correctly to the safest standards and running at the best overall performance. It is also essential to achieve a reliable and successful Green Star Rating under the Green Star Office MAN-4 credit.

A successful and experienced ICA can:

  • Oversees the whole project from design through to construction and post completion building tuning.
  • Provide unbiased review and recommendations to the design team, consultants and contractors to ensure that the building is commissioned effectively and efficiently.
  • Ensure achieving the target building’s NABERS energy rating requirements.
  • Provides a successful transfer of building information at commissioning for future Building operators, Maintainers, Occupants and Modifiers.
  • Oversee training, operations and maintenance of systems and staff.
  • Prepare final commissioning report including recommendations on building performance.
 

CSI is known for our ability to manage and deliver high-quality projects on time and within budget.

 

We have a strong commitment to meet and satisfy all clients’ specific requirements by providing turnkey solutions through innovation and implementation.

CSI can independently provide a holistic approach in building services management that starts from initial concept design all the way through to construction, commissioning, handover and post completion.

We know and understand Builders, their Sub-contractors and Developers and have been directly engaged by them for multiple projects as services managers, services engineers and commissioning managers.

CSI will manage the ongoing site issues including design and scope changes, alternative plant/systems, contract variations, shop drawings, approvals, RFI’s, commissioning, O&M schedules and handover.

Regardless, of a project’s size or complexity, we aim to commit and to provide you with a trouble free services experience by reducing the complexity of practical completion and client handover.
