Courtesy: Consulting-Specifying EngineerThe 2014 Commissioning Giants had several new entries this year, namely because some firms did not report any commissioning revenue when they submitted data in early 2014, and because Consulting-Specifying Engineer opted to expand the list to the top 15 firms. 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.
