Blue Sky personnel are skilled and certified in several building testing, assessment, and verification disciplines. Take some time to review our offerings below to see if we can meet your facilities needs.
Health care facilities have very distinct and unique standards and operational difficulties. Each room and space has pressure, air exchange, and humidity requirements, which have to be met during construction, then verified annually. Many operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year. These demanding parameters pose substantial challenges to building systems and controls. Blue Sky's personnel specialize in being deeply familiar with healthcare requirements and guidelines, and are trained to identify and ease the pain points for the professionals who operate these facilities. This means that we have particular expertise when applying the commissioning and testing, adjusting, balancing processes to these critical environments.
Give us a call to chat with a health care building expert about your unique facility needs.
Buildings, and building systems represent a BIG investment for their owners. A facility assessment can help a prospective owner make informed decisions about a prospective investment, or negotiate a better deal with the seller. Already own a building? A facility assessment can help with capital planning, maintenance management, and risk mitigation. Get in touch with us to discuss a customized facility condition assessment to help you get the most our of your facilities dollar.
Blue Sky personnel have commissioned dozens of buildings of nearly every sort. We emphasize design and early construction phase diligence in our process in order to make functional performance testing and integrated systems testing smoother later on. We can help your construction team deliver a functional building, as well as a trained facilities staff who are ready to operate and maintain your complex new building systems.
Much like your car or your laptop, buildings age and their performance declines. Control sensors drift out of calibration, set-points are overridden, equipment begins to break down, and tenant spaces are remodeled changing performance requirements. Blue Sky wants to tune your existing building up and get it running efficiently and effectively. Our slogan - FINELY TUNED BUILDINGS was born out of our passion for making old buildings perform to their potential.
Are the doors of your building standing open no matter how you adjust your door closers? Is the corner office always comfortable but the offices down the hall always too cold or too hot? Did you recently complete a building controls upgrade which seems to have played havoc with your facility's airflow? Blue Sky's testing, adjusting, and balancing professionals can measure and adjust the air and water flow into, out of, and within your building, to correct many major comfort and pressure issues. Ask us if testing, adjusting, and balancing might be right for your building.
Performance of laboratory fume hoods and bio-safety cabinets is a critical facilities component with life-safety implications. Design and application of these devices varies greatly depending on the process, and most organizations operating them are required to verify performance annually. If this is you, you need an expert.
Fresh off of a year of studying, testing, and certification, Blue Sky is currently ramping up our fume hood and bio-safety cabinet certification program. Once we're at full steam, we will offer hood and cabinet certification, HEPA filter integrity testing, and tracer-gas containment testing, to help laboratory and research facilities keep their people and products safe. We are currently equipped to handle most requests, but our full suite of services in this area will be available by December 2021. Shoot us an email and let's discuss your testing needs.
In addition to those listed above, Blue Sky has a few other tools in our testing and assessment toolbox. We regularly perform stairwell pressurization testing, kitchen hood weld inspections, kitchen hood airflow and smoke testing, snow-melt system testing, ultra-sonic water flow measurement, building optimization, control sensor calibration, and others.
