[Ambler, PA]  Precis Commissioning, a woman-owned company providing building commissioning services, has spun off from Precis Engineering.

“I saw a significant opportunity to focus and expand our commissioning services beyond our current service portfolio. We will continue to work cooperatively with building owners, design teams, and operations staff to solve problems while improving facility operations,” said Precis Commissioning founder Kari Anne Donovan, PE, CxA. “Our strategic partnership with Precis Engineering gives us the depth of resources and engineering expertise to effectively meet the needs of our clients.”

“Kari has long been a valued part of our engineering and commissioning teams,” explained Precis Engineering principal Robert Dick, PE. “We know and trust her leadership and look forward to collaborating with her as a fellow business owner.”

Precis Commissioning launched January 1, 2015. The company provides objective, third-party building commissioning services for pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical customers, including testing, inspection, and documentation of building systems and equipment to ensure functionality according to design intent and client requirements. Services include commissioning within the cGMP environment in support of validation efforts as outlined within the ASTM e2500 standard guide.

Commissioning coordinates the traditionally separate functions of equipment startup, system calibration, balancing, and employee training for efficiency, consistency, and safety.

The Precis Commissioning team includes registered engineers who have designed and overseen construction of the systems the firm commissions, and former field personnel who have maintained and operated those systems.

“Our comprehensive background allows us to better tailor our service to our customer’s needs,” explained Donovan. “It affords us valuable perspective to increase client profitability and optimize operational performance.”
