Dewberry Designated a Certified Commissioning Firm
Dewberry was recently designated a certified commissioning firm (CCF) by the Building Commissioning Certification Board (BCCB). The firm met and exceeded the requirements of having at least one full-time certified commissioning professional (CCP) and completing three new building, existing building, or renovation commissioning projects as the lead commissioning firm from design through construction with a cumulative total of 150,000 square feet and a construction value of at least $30 million. Dewberry is now one of only 31 CCFs in the U.S.
“This is a great distinction for Dewberry,” said Bill McMullen, associate vice president and energy solutions group business unit manager. “As we continue to advance the industry with innovations, being a CCF gives clients and partners confidence that they are receiving the highest-quality service in accordance with BCCB’s nationally recognized codes of service and attributes.”
The CCF program was launched in 2013 in response to industry requests for recognition of commissioning expertise on a firm level. The international Building Commissioning Association (BCA) promotes building commissioning practices that maintain high professional standards.
Since 2014, Dewberry’s energy solutions group has helped save 673,794 kWh of annual energy at the Los Angeles Department of Public Works headquarters, 500,000 kWh of annual energy at the MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, and retro-commissioned more than four million square feet of higher education healthcare space across six University of Pittsburgh Medical Center facilities.
