I have worked with CFMS Inc. since 1994. For the most part they have provided commissioning services for new schools, additions/renovations and infrastructure upgrades. Other services that they have provided are designers and project managers for building automation replacement projects and more recently played a huge part in determining where our utility dollars were being spent. The end result of this project has been some impressive energy savings with a minimal capital outlay.
CFMS provides a vital service to our board by providing expert and personalized service to both our Construction and Energy Management team. I consider CFMS an extension of our team – more than a vendor - they are able to represent and report to Plant Services what is happening on site during our new construction projects and our Building systems retrofits. They are like have a 2nd set of eyes and ears to what is happening in the field. CFMS has taken the time to completely familiarize themselves with our operational style and what our guideline mechanical and electrical specifications call for in our schools. This complete understanding of how we work allows them to provide a personalize service for our schools us that is 2nd to none. When we finish a project and it is commissioned by CFMS – I have complete faith in the system operation moving forward. Through this process we can ensure the proper performance of our schools systems for many years in the future.
The staff at CFMS is friendly, knowledgeable, courteous, and never condescending. Their design review and construction monitoring is thorough and complete as well as their video training sessions which help us troubleshoot issues after occupancy of our new projects.
I have worked with CFMS as a member of the mechanical commissioning team on a number of projects, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the professionalism and experience that CFMS brings to the project. There are always challenges and obstacles to overcome during the commissioning of major projects, but CFMS supports the commissioning team and does everything in their power to make the project a success for all parties. The team at CFMS has a wealth of experience, tools, and resources to make even the most challenging of circumstances achievable.
CFMS was instrumental in the commissioning of the Aura Condominium Project, this 78 storey tower had a very large and complicated mechanical package and it was through a team effort headed by Balaratnam (Maha) Mahadeva of CFMs that the build was commissioned and handed over to the owner complying with the design intent and functioning at optimal efficiency. It was my pleasure working with CFMS on this project their approach to problem solving and working in a team environment was key to the success of this project and I look forward to working with CFMS in the future.
I have worked with CFMS as the commissioning agent for the Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence at York University, and it is with great pleasure that I report our complete satisfaction with CFMS and its contribution to this complex project. From the beginning of our collaboration, until full project completion, this firm has fully delivered against the commitments made. During all design, construction and project close-out activities, CFMS representatives worked closely with the entire project team, and provided their advice and expertise, always being available and accessible for support and clarification.
I would like to express my gratitude to CFMS for completing all commissioning activities for this project, and would not hesitate to refer CFMS to others. The building was delivered as scheduled, on time for the September 2015 Term, and it has achieved LEED Gold.
In 2010 CFMS Consulting Inc. was a proud recipient of the Toronto Construction Association 'Best of the Best' award for the contribution to the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Project
