Our clients are concerned about their buildings’ mechanical services systems from both a performance and running cost perspective, so they must run at a premium level. These “green” goals can be accomplished only when a building’s mechanical services systems are properly commissioned, tested and balanced. Westside recognizes the importance of this and are committed to commissioning all of our installations to a high standard.The National Environmental Balancing Bureau (NEBB) is the world’s premier international certification association for firms that deliver high performance building systems. Westside holds company NEBB certification and our commissioning technicians are NEBB qualified. Click here for a copy of our NEBB Certification
