KANSAS CITY, Missouri — Burns & McDonnell has moved to the top spot as the industry’s largest commissioning services firm on the annual 2018 Commissioning Giants survey conducted by Consulting-Specifying Engineer (CSE) magazine. Burns & McDonnell reported commissioning revenue of $31.4 million, up from $25.1 million the prior year.
The rapid growth is the result of a commitment by Burns & McDonnell to expand commissioning services on a national scale, nearly doubling its geographic footprint over the past year. Today, more than 140 commissioning professionals work in 23 offices throughout the country, up from 14 offices a year earlier. In addition to the commitment of resources, Burns & McDonnell also recently achieved formal designation as a Certified Commissioning firm by the Building Commissioning Association.
“We’re excited by the movement up the rankings because it means that more and more owners, developers, utility providers and energy service companies are seeing what commissioning can do to save them money, reduce energy consumption, enhance resiliency and deliver successful projects,” says David Meyers, National Manager of Commissioning and group leader for Burns & McDonnell.
Burns & McDonnell specializes in delivering a wide range of commissioning, retro-commissioning (for existing buildings) and monitoring-based commissioning services for facilities, campus installations, and mega-scale programs throughout the country. Currently the Burns & McDonnell commissioning group is working on seven large building programs, each with a construction value in excess of $1 billion. The firm has provided commissioning services on a wide range of industrial, commercial, federal, mission-critical, and unique, one-of-a-kind projects for facilities totaling millions of square feet.
Commissioning is increasingly part of programming, design and construction of highly complex facilities, including early stages as a strategy to better manage project budgets and reduce project risk. Services include MEP coordination and startup management, facility condition assessment, energy model verification, energy audits, measurement and verification and building enclosure commissioning.
