The 15 firms reported a total of more than $351 million in revenue dedicated to commissioning new buildings or retro-commissioning existing buildings.

Among all 2014 MEP Giants, 1,362 projects were commissioned by a third party, with each of the 102 firms listed averaging 13 projects commissioned by a third party. Overall, 8% of the percentage of design revenue for all firms came from commissioning projects, up 1% from 2013 data.

Cx Giants not listed last year include: AECOM Technology Corp., GLUMAC, Syska Hennessy Group, Stanley Consultants, Aon Fire Protection Engineering Corp., Affiliated Engineers Inc., RMF Engineering, AKF Group LLC, and Vanderweil Engineers.
