Warranty & Commissioning

Campus Construction (CC) is responsible for the development and construction or renovation of large-to medium-scale facilities at the University. The Engineering and Technical Support (ETS) team supports these efforts in several ways, including warranty and commissioning support and managing the identification of our equipment.

Warranty

Proactive warranty servicing avoids unnecessary repair costs and time and engages and builds customer satisfaction. Our warranty specialist provides support to CC by:

  • Tracking when buildings enter their warranty period
  • Coordinating with our zone maintenance shops to identify issues
  • Logging any issues that occur on warrantied buildings and creating a work order to get the issue addressed
  • Tracking and identifying work orders that should be warranty work
  • Tracking the resolution of warranty issues and their completion date
  • Getting confirmation from zone shops that the warranty work was completed
  • Attending warranty meetings and warranty walkthroughs
  • Covering one-year warranties on large projects.

Commissioning

Our commissioning specialists keep an eye on new construction on campus, helping to avoid future issues in new facilities and increase customer satisfaction with the final product.

How do we know if new building systems are working right and meet expected needs, standards, and specifications? This is where our team comes in. Their support includes:

  • Helping to develop the scope of commissioning
  • Participating in the external commissioning process
  • Witnessing integrated functional testing
  • Obtaining closeout documentation

Equipment Identification Process

The Equipment Identification (EQ ID) Process provides a comprehensive maintenance service to our campus and is critical to our organization's purpose. As buildings and projects are completed, it is important that FOM knows the information listed below so that we can provide timely service to the building occupants.

  • Equipment being installed with critical equipment information
  • Location of equipment
  • Manufacturer's information and manuals

The documents below describe the process for Campus Planning (CP), Campus Construction (CC) and their contractors to provide FOM information about equipment installed during projects. This information includes description, specifications, manufacturer, and location of each piece of equipment. From this information, an asset label is applied to the equipment for tracking and identification. Following substantial completion, we can begin regular preventive maintenance and support to the building's purpose through regular service to the equipment.
