The Page Commissioning Team is committed to exceptional commissioning services and outstanding client care. There are many challenges related to operating buildings effectively and efficiently. We recognize each organization and building has unique requirements, and we believe high performance buildings cannot exist without the application of the commissioning process.

With a solid track-record as a Certified Commissioning Firm (CCF), the Page Commissioning Team provides our clients with a team of professional engineers, architects and field technicians whose credentials are unparalleled. As one of the largest architectural and engineering organizations in the country specializing in building technologies, Page has a broader perspective on total building commissioning than those typically found in single dimension commissioning and engineering firms. This breadth and depth of technical personnel resources allows Page to respond in a more comprehensive and sophisticated manner under any schedule constraints.

Page provides building commissioning services for many public and private clients such as The University of Texas System, Baylor College of Medicine, U.S. General Services Administration, NASA Johnson Space Center, the City of Houston, CenterPoint Energy, Shell Oil, and, the new 385-acre ExxonMobil Campus near the Woodlands, Texas that accommodates approximately 10,000 employees and constructed to high standards of energy efficiency and environmental stewardship.

LEED Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning

ExxonMobil Corporate Campus Commissioning Spring, Texas

Page was engaged by ExxonMobil to perform LEED Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning for their new 385-acre campus located in Spring, Texas. The commissioning team provided full MEP commissioning services for 23 buildings on the campus, which accommodate approximately 10,000 employees and were constructed to high standards of energy efficiency and environmental stewardship. Sustainable design practices have been incorporated into every facet of the campus design and construction process. The state-ofthe-art campus consists of 14 office buildings, a multi-story laboratory, meeting and training centers, a 20,000-ton central plant, a wellness center, an energy center, three parking garages, a computing facility, a large central campus commons, a childcare development facility (equipped with 19 classrooms) and other employee amenities.

The 14 office buildings were designed to maximize daylight and views for employees with a sophisticated daylight harvesting lighting controls system. In addition, the systems were designed to achieve the following: increased energy efficiency including high-quality and high-efficiency equipment; a building automation system incorporating control strategies to minimize energy consumption while maintaining user comfort and system reliability; increased indoor air quality; use of durable, high quality and environmentally safe building materials; and avoidance of ozone-depleting substances such as CFCs and halons.
