He has provided commissioning services for buildings varying in size from 50 k to 2.5 million square feet, which include schools, office buildings, laboratories and healthcare facilities, many with complex mechanical systems controlled by a state-of-the-art building management system. Ed managed the static and dynamic testing process for the new Terminal 1 at Pearson International Airport, where the mechanical contract was over $220 million.
