Building Audits, Inspections and Due Dilligence

“Why are my utility bills so high?” , “Why is it always too hot or too cold in my building?”, “Why is this system not working as it should?”. TSI’s engineering and technical team can answer these questions and correct the problems by thoroughly investigating the day to day operation of the mechanical, electrical, and fire life safety systems and then tuning the systems to their optimum performance level. TSI always finds the cause of the problems then provides the course of action needed to fix the problems.

TSI also provides engineering due diligence, audit, code compliance and inspections of building HVAC, Electrical, Lighting and Plumbing systems for owners, purchasers, sellers, investors and financial appraisers.
