Experience

Tracy Perry has participated in the structural investigation and rehabilitation of numerous parking garage and building structures. Many of these projects involving concrete, steel, wood, and masonry have included in-depth analysis, repair design, production of construction documents, and construction observation services. 

Her focus lies in the area of existing structures, with an emphasis on the evaluation and repair of concrete structures. She specializes in applying nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques, specifically impact-echo, ground penetrating radar, and ultrasonic pulse velocity, to evaluate concrete and masonry structures. Ms. Perry has investigated concrete-related problems in numerous structures, including prestressed and post-tensioned structures, bridges, parking garages, foundations, and pavements. She has also performed capital reserve studies for homeowners associations to help them develop their long-range planning and funding of major repair expenditures.
