Meet Kari Rosteck! She is a Field Engineer II working in our Ann Arbor, MI office and was recently selected as an Employee of the Month! Here's a quick Q/A with her:

  • Who would you like to swap places with for a day? I'd love to swap places with my dog. Some of the many questions I have could finally be answered... Does she like playing ball, or does she think I like playing ball? What does she think about all day? Does she like eating the same food every meal?
  • What did you want to grow up to be when you were a kid? Aside from the usual childhood dreams of being a rock star or astronaut, I really wanted to be a doctor. It wasn't until my Grade 11 chemistry class that veered me towards engineering. Along with the realization of costs, time and the competition in University of becoming a doctor. I am ever more grateful for those who are!
  • What do you enjoy doing when you are not working? I enjoy sailing on Lake Erie, having a drink with friends and playing recreational soccer. 
  • List three hashtags that describe your personality. #geterdone ... I can't think of any others
  • What is your favorite moment while working at HEA? My favorite moment while working at HEA was actually a phone call i got from a contractor one day after a very 'intense' commissioning meeting. I was expecting an unfiltered comment such as, "You don't know what you're talking about" or "I've been doing this for 30+ years, I know best" etc. No. Instead he says "Kari, I'm sorry." Me: "Why?" Contractor: "You know, you walked into this job and I thought, great here is this young girl who doesn't know anything. I thought it was going to be a mess. Well I have to say it's quite the opposite. You're articulate in meetings, you do your homework and you know what you're talking about. You're killing it and I wanted to say I'm sorry for judging you."

Meet Christopher Cookingham! He is a Field Engineer at HEA and was recently selected as an Employee of the Month! Here's a quick Q/A with him:

  • Who would you like to swap places with for a day? Jim Clark in the late 50s. He was a racecar driver in the late 50s and through his death (in a racing crash) in ‘62. He is often referred to as the best racing driver in history, and I think that setting a lap record at the Nürburgring Ring would be an all time moment.
  • What did you want to grow up to be when you were a kid? When I was growing up I always wanted to be a fireman, everyone in my family has been a fireman so you could say it’s in my blood. I have every intention to continue that in the near future by joining the volunteer company in the town where I live.
  • What do you enjoy doing when you are not working? When I’m not working there is a high chance that I am with some of my friends throwing around a disc or playing ultimate frisbee. I also actively follow hockey, football, and baseball. When it isn’t nice enough to go outside I’m usually at the movie theater, hockey rink, or at home playing Red Dead 2.
  • List three hashtags that describe your personality.
    • #WhatIsAHashtag
    • #NJDevilsfan
    • #UltimateFrisbee
  • What is your favorite moment while working at HEA? My favorite moment while working for HEA was working with Luke Serkanic and James Almodoval in the old Paramount Theater in Brooklyn. Luke was asked to determine where the existing ductwork goes and what it serves. Without drawings or anyone who knew that information, we had to set off smoke bombs in the duct and have a fan push the air through the duct. We then went through the old building to try and determine where the smoke went. In an old building like that there were some really cool old sections that still showed the original architecture and some of the original film and camera displays.

Employee Spotlight: Tracy Kiernan 

Wednesday, December 5, 2018 1:33:00 PM

Meet Kieran Tracy! He is a Field Engineer at HEA and he recently earned his LEED Green Associate credential. HEA is committed to our tagline, “Demand a Higher Standard” and encourages our staff to always be learning and being ahead of the curve. Here's a quick Q/A with this rising star:

  • Why was it important to you to pursue your LEED Green Associate credential?

It was important for me to pursue this credential because sustainable building is becoming more prominent in our industry every day. I wanted to become more knowledgeable in this area to show that I understand the overall intentions of green building as well as HEA’s specific role as the Commissioning Authority in the big picture of a LEED project. Having a LEED credential helps position myself and HEA as valuable team members for any client that is targeting a LEED certification.

  • How will it help you to help our clients?

Pursuing a LEED certification is no small decision for a building owner or tenant, so having an extra set of eyes involved in the project to help make sure it stays on track can be an extremely valuable asset. After acquiring this LEED credential I have a better understanding of the important role of the Commissioning Authority in the LEED certification process, and also how HEA can ensure that the building operates as it was designed in order to achieve the intended performance level. As I become more involved in the design review process, having a LEED credential will help me to be more aware of the LEED credit requirements and also help me to present opportunities to qualify for additional points in the chosen rating system.

  • Any other plans for future certifications?

I plan on pursuing the LEED AP BD+C certification in the upcoming year.
