“As the owners representative I have worked with Chris for the past 4 plus years on more than a dozen construction or renovation projects. Chris’s main responsibility has been to provide commissioning services for mechanical, electrical, lighting control, audio visual systems, central sound systems, HVAC and building control systems. In addition he has been an asset to the owners design and construction management team as an advocate to ensure that the building systems are designed, installed, functionally tested and capable of operating in compliance with the design intent and the owner’s project requirements. He continually strives for innovative ways to seamlessly transition from the construction process of our facilities to operation and maintenance. I look forward to this professional relationship for many projects into the future. I highly recommend Chris Zerhusen to anyone seeking a highly qualified commissioning services professional.”

-Rick Dames, Director of Facilities Management Boone County Schools

“Chris provided Union Rural Electric Cooperative with commissioning services that not only exceeded our expectations, but also provided the boost we needed to ensure receiving Gold LEED certification on our new corporate headquarters. Whether you’re going for certification or just want to make sure your facility is operating at peak performance, you can’t afford to not include commissioning.”

 -Brad Gibson, Director of Member Services Duck River Electric Membership Corporation

“We have used the services of Zerhusen Holten Commissioning, LLC,as a preventative maintenance consultant on our geothermal heating and cooling system.  The company is customer oriented, thorough and dedicated.  They have always been very responsive to our requests and their courteous and friendly staff know what they are doing. Their experience, dedication and willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done is exceptional.  I highly recommend  Zerhusen Holten Commissioning.”

-Dave Schroeder, Executive Director Kenton County Libraries

“After using the services of ZH Commissioning for our last two school additions and seeing the value they provide, I would highly recommend them for any project. Additionally, we have hired them as a consultant for our district in order to help us identify ways to further reduce our energy use, examine our energy rates, reduce our maintenance costs, increase comfort, and provide clear communication to our administration and board. They have been a huge asset to our district so that we can continue to operate our schools at an elevated efficiency now and into the future. “

-Bill Boyle, Superintendent, Walton-Verona Schools

“…The Greene County Career Center first realized the extent of Chris Zerhusen’s talents during a near catastrophic HVAC freeze event that threatened to close our school for several months. Chris’s employer, at the time, had designed the system and when “the chips were down,” he was the one, despite not having any prior involvement in the project that was dispatched to assist in the effort to save the system. That single fact is a true testament to the character and work ethic that encompasses his professionalism.

When ZH Commissioning was formed, we felt Chris and his associates were our best option to step in and take over the commissioning phase, of the project, to find solutions to our continuing problems. ZH Commissioning employs a unique hands-on approach to commissioning that is not the industry standard. Instead of mindlessly sitting at a computer terminal and filling in a spreadsheet, ZH physically touches the equipment, tweaks it, tests it, and then creates a report with verified facts. ZH knows their stuff and have been proving that their methods work by showing results no one else was willing to look for.

If you are looking for a commissioning provider and do not choose ZH Commissioning, you are making a huge mistake. This company is the “real deal” and can teach other providers a thing or two on the right way to commission a project…”
