M. Troy Smalley, P.E.


Troy Smalley has more than 20 years of engineering experience; including the design of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems; plumbing systems; fire protection systems; and building commissioning.  He has designed engineered systems for universities, high schools, houses of worship, hospitals, clinics, research laboratories, and condominiums.  He has worked with mechanical systems ranging in size from residential furnaces and condensing units to steam boilers, chillers and cooling towers in central plants.

As a Commissioning Authority, Troy implemented commissioning best practices and essential attributes as prescribed by the Building Commissioning Association (BCxA) and ASHRAE Guideline 0.   He acted as an advocate for the building owner to ensure quality was incorporated into the project from its inception.  During the pre-design phase he helped clients develop and document their building performance requirements, the standard by which the finished product would be judged.  As a LEED® Accredited Professional Troy helped clients incorporate goals for energy efficiency and minimal environmental impact into the design.  During the design phase he reviewed the engineering basis of design, drawings, submittals, and sequences of operation.  He developed equipment Installation Checklists to aid the contractors in installing the approved equipment properly. Throughout the construction phase, he performed site inspections to ensure the equipment was installed per the checklists and document any issues that arose.  Troy developed Functional Performance Tests for each major system; including air handlers, boilers, chillers, exhaust fans, building controls, lighting controls, and security equipment; and then supervised their execution.  He ensured the contractors and designers resolved all documented issues before the building was turned over to the owner.   He facilitated the transition to the occupancy and operation phase by supervising the training of the facility operators and assembling the Operations and Maintenance Manuals for the installed equipment.
