RFQ 21-39 – Re/Retro-Commissioning and Commissioning Services

The Houston Community College System (“HCC” or the “College”) is soliciting statements of qualifications (“Qualifications”) from firms/consultants (“Respondents”) to provide Professional Commissioning Services for various projects on an “as needed” basis in accordance with the terms, conditions, and requirements set forth in this Request for Qualifications (RFQ). This Request for Qualifications (“RFQ”) provides Respondents with the information necessary to prepare and submit Qualifications for consideration by the College. HCC anticipates negotiating an agreement with one or more Respondent to provide professional Commissioning Services. These services may vary in timing, complexity and dollar value. Commissioning of new construction projects and existing buildings or “retro commissioning,” is a systematic process applied to existing buildings for identifying and implementing operational and maintenance (O&M) improvements and for ensuring their continued performance over time. Retro commissioning assures system functionality. It is an inclusive and systematic process that intends not only to optimize how equipment and systems operate, but also to optimize how the systems function together. Although retro commissioning may include recommendations for capital improvements, the primary focus is on using O&M tune-up activities and diagnostic testing to optimize the building systems. Retro commissioning is not a substitute for major repair work. Repairing major problems is a must before retro commissioning can be fully completed.
