Many older or poorly maintained buildings have veered off their intended design. This impacts customer comfort, energy consumption and puts undo stress on the facilities team.
The purpose of retro commissioning (RCx) is to identify and repair the deficiencies within a building that are preventing the building from operating as it was commissioned and designed. Once a building is retro commissioned, any energy conservation measures implemented will perform at peak efficiency due to the surrounding equipment starting from an optimized baseline.
At CM3, our goal is to repair and refurbish older equipment achieving the same result as replacing the equipment. Unlike other companies who might recommend a “rip and replace” approach, CM3 offers a different strategy that is industry-recognized and provides proven results.
The CM3 RCx solution is a systematic process that quickly identifies deficiencies and allows for repairs based on severity and impact.
The CM3 RCx process is performed by a standardized review and test of each mechanical system. Once field work is complete, a comprehensive report and repair recommendations are provided. The repairs are then performed and commissioned. And, an optional MBCx (Monitor-Based Commissioning) can be put in place to better realize benefits and ensure performance

CM3 also offers additional monitor-based commissioning services. With this solution, repairs and unit functionality are verified and continuously monitored to ensure the building and equipment continues performing as it was commissioned.
CM3 offers commissioning of new systems and re-commissioning of existing systems, as well as the more in-depth service of retro-commissioning. These commissioning services provide you with flexibility to determine how much you want done while still ensuring that your system is operating as it was originally intended.
For customers with facilities in Philadelphia, CM3 is approved by Philadelphia’s Office of Sustainability as a Building Tune-Up Specialist. Building Tune-Up Specialists are approved to conduct building tune-ups as part of Philadelphia’s Building Energy Performance Program (BEPP).
CM3 is also currently seeking approval for other energy efficiency programs, such as the New Jersey Clean Energy Program. Please reach out for more information on our certification status on specific programs.
