Tracey is Director of Commissioning - Special Projects at Microsoft (Formerly Director/Co-Founder of Commissioning at EMCOR Mesa Energy Systems). She has 22 years of experience in construction, mechanical systems engineering and maintenance services and has been identified as a specialist in commissioning and improving existing buildings. She previously owned her own Cx consulting firm and managed two others before that, with Cx projects across the U.S.

Tracey is on the technical subcommittee that developed the new ASHRAE Standard 230-2022 – The Commissioning Process for Existing Buildings (Nov ’22). She also is a subject matter expert credited in The Building Commissioning Handbook 3rd Ed. and editor of The BCxA’s Best Practices for Existing Building Commissioning.

In 2022, she was recognized as one of Engineered Systems’ 20 Women to Watch in HVAC. She has been honored as one of Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine’s Top 40 Under 40 (2020) and recognized by her peers for outstanding service to the commissioning industry, having received the BCA President’s Award (2016).

Besides facilities commissioning, Tracey is a philanthropic eco-adventurer. In April of 2022, she raised the top funds for CoolEarth.org by completing an unassisted adventure challenge of riding an 86CC monkey bike (small motorcycle) through the rainforest and over the Andes on some of the most treacherous terrain on the planet.

Tracey is the Region X Government Affairs Regional Vice Chair, a member of the ASHRAE Southern Nevada Chapter and has been an active member across five different ASHRAE regions since 2003. She holds a bachelor’s degree in architectural engineering from Penn State.

Topics
ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 230-2022 Commissioning Process for Existing Buildings & Systems: Putting the New Standard to Work for You
Would you like to know how the new standard was developed and how your practice can benefit? This presentation includes a debut of 230, how it differs from the new construction standard, and ways you can start using it to improve your practice. The presenter is a credited contributor to the standard.
The Business of Existing Building Commissioning & Troubleshooting HVAC Systems
Interested in breaking into the field of commissioning and improving existing buildings? Have you tried to execute Existing Building projects previously, with little ease or success? Existing Buildings need more attention now than ever, but there are several challenges that can make commissioning and improvement work seem difficult and too costly. Your approach can make or break your existing building project. Learn ways to write scopes and execute on contracts when you don’t know where testing may lead and when the hours for troubleshooting and solving can seem infinite. There is more than enough work to go around, and we need to share insights into how this process can be easy and appropriately scoped and executed.
Post-Pandemic Upgrading & Re-Commissioning of Existing Buildings, in Practice
Do you want to know how maintenance and improvement practices have changed since the pandemic lockdowns and re-openings occurred? Learn how existing facilities experts have been addressing improvements in expedient but smart ways. Learn how it’s possible to assess and implement improvements for ventilation, filtration, and controllability even when space use, HVAC systems and controls are all different. This presentation includes a range of case stories: a small nonprofit women’s center with little funding, a regional hospital with Covid surges, a government lab campus with strict technical discernment, a university campus with too many types of facilities and systems, and a large, unified school district with public town halls and only a few weeks for ventilation fixes. In compliance with ASHRAE Epidemic Task Force recommendations.
Tackling the Climate Crisis: One ASHRAE Engineer’s Lessons from the Amazon Rainforest.
Can HVAC&R Engineers Save the Planet? Initially inspired by a death road race over the Andes and through the Amazon jungle, this presentation includes some inspiring and surprisingly entrepreneurial ways that industry folks can take action to protect our most precious environmental systems. In compliance with ASHRAE Task Force on Decarbonization recommendations.
