Janelle Kolisch P.E., CCP | Senior Cx Agent
CBRE | HEERY Commissioning


What do you do? I am a Senior Commissioning Agent for CBRE | Heery. Typically during a building construction project, I will be hired directly by the owner to act as a technical project manager/ third party verification to test and validate that the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and other specialty systems are designed, installed, and working per contract documents.

What do you value in the people you work with? I value people who act with respect, integrity, and passion in their career.

Who is your most influential role model? My most influential role model is my friend Ryan who recently passed away suddenly from Leukemia. Ryan didn't have the word "no" in his vocabulary. He always went out of his way to make sure his friends were safe, comfortable and happy. He had friends from all aspects of his life, and when you met a friend of his you knew they were a good person simply because they were friends with him. His life and passing has inspired me to live and love like he did, to the fullest.

If you weren't an engineer, you'd be? If I wasn't an engineer I would do something in product design, although I knew I was going to be an engineer very early on. My first coloring book was a set of my Dad's blueprints.

Proudest accomplishment? Being selected as 2017 Young Engineer of the Year.
