Henderson Building Solutions is providing commissioning services in accordance with CALGREEN Certification for New Construction under the 2010 California Green Building Standard (including changes effective July 1, 2012) for Ulta stores throughout the state. These retail stores are approximately 10,150 SF and are capable of providing a full-service salon. Ulta Beauty offers customers cosmetics, makeup, fragrance, skincare, bath & body, and hair care tools. In addition to the main retail floor, these stores include a salon section capable of performing hair, nail and skin treatments. There are also restrooms, rear stockroom, rear office, display windows and a parking lot for customer and associate parking. The design incorporates the use of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. The building makes use of energy efficient rooftop units for heating and cooling.
Commissioning services begin when the design team completes the construction documents in the design phase. Building Solutions reviews the mechanical, electrical and plumbing design documents and portions of documents produced by other disciplines with a project goal of detecting and correcting potential constructability or operational issues prior to construction. Building Solutions submits review comments to the design team, then forwards the comments, including the design teams responses, to the owner’s representative. Checklists are developed for use during construction based on the commissioning agent’s understanding of the design intent. Additional responsibilities of the commissioning agent include performing a mid-construction site visit at the completion of rough-in. A second visit is coordinated to occur in conjunction with HVAC testing and balancing and completion of the automatic temperature controls checkout. Finally, detailed reports are prepared after each visit and the commissioning agent remains engaged until all operational issues are resolved.
