Borrow Equipment

FELL is fully stocked with field equipment for testing, measuring and diagnosing building system operations, facilitating ongoing commissioning, and performing building re-tuning and retrofit projects. BPL personnel is available to assist with selection of equipment to help diagnose the problems you’re experiencing in your buildings, and to provide any necessary training.
