Start-up & Commissioning

Start-up & Commissioning is an essential stage of the design-build life-cycle, where the experienced industry professionals at PFES will transition your project from the end of construction to operations. We ensure commissioning objectives are met and that established protocols are used to get your new facility up and running safely and on schedule.

Safe and Timely Start-Up

Our goal is to confirm your equipment is installed correctly, meets factory standards, and passes our stringent performance tests so you can minimize future downtime delays. Initiated right from the beginning of the project, PFES ensures that all systems and necessary components of a building or plant are properly installed and tested according to the specifications and requirements of our client and are ready for a safe and timely start-up.

Troubleshooting Experts

While the end of the construction phase is an exciting time, it’s also when a lot of unexpected issues can arise. For safety, all equipment, systems, and procedures must be checked and tested before you begin operating your facility. PFES commissioning personnel have specialized industry-specific knowledge and training to efficiently and successfully move your project into the operational phase.

We know the hazards of start-up, and we know how to troubleshoot equipment and systems problems thanks to extensive experience in the field. Plus, we know how vital this phase is for your continued success, so we take the training and qualification of operating personnel very seriously. You can rest assured that we will carefully plan and execute this phase of your project with you in accordance with your specific needs.
