“EAB has consistently given me the tools to progress in the industry. I’m proud to be a part of an organization that is a leading authority in what they do.” – Tate Stoneham
Tate’s Time at EAB
Shortly after meeting Justin Garner, EAB Vice President, at a career fair at Texas Tech University and upon his graduation with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree, Tate began his career at Engineered Air Balance as a Commissioning Specialist in 2014.
By 2015, Tate was certified as a Test and Balance Technician by the Associated Air Balance Council (AABC).
Over the next few years, Tate gained more experience out in the field, and dedicated his time to growing his technical expertise. His hard work paid off, and in 2017 Tate became a Certified Commissioning Authority (CxA) through the AABC Commissioning Group (ACG).
In 2022, Tate transitioned into a Project Manager role and oversees Healthcare, K-12 and University projects in the Houston market. He is responsible for business development, technical management, and client relations with our valued Healthcare, K-12 and University partners in the Houston market.
Tate is an incredibly effective leader who is dedicated in everything he does. When commenting on the importance of EAB’s core values, Tate explains, “Integrity means doing the right thing even when no one is looking. In the field it’s crucial to be honest and provide the client with a quality product. We never leave a project until an optimum operating facility is delivered.” With Tate, you can truly feel the difference. Tate, we are so thankful to have you on our team!
Over the last 8 years, Tate has been a huge asset to our team, and has helped us deliver many optimum operating facilities. Here are just a few of those projects:
Due to EAB’s success of the MD Anderson project in 2009 and 2010, EAB was awarded the full MD Anderson Zayed Building Total Building Commissioning scope in 2014. This is the first project Tate worked on when he got hired, and one of the largest commissioning projects EAB had at the time. Read more about this project on our laboratories page.
As a Commissioning Specialist on the Phillips 66 project, Tate worked closely with Josh Barnhart, EAB Commissioning Manager, to schedule activities between all parties involved to move this project to completion. This project is particularly notable because it is the largest commissioning project EAB has worked on to date.
In 2018, Tate transitioned into a Commissioning Coordinator role. As one of his first projects in his new role, he was honored to lead and coordinate the UTMB League City Hospital’s Bed Tower expansion.

What’s your absolute favorite thing about working for EAB?
Two thoughts come to mind: 1). The EAB team and the camaraderie we share on and off the field, and 2). EAB’s leadership in how they care for their employees and our families. I’m lucky to be a part of a team that works towards the same goal and is willing to help each other in the process; and I’m proud to work for a company that truly takes care of their employees and makes sure they have everything they need to provide for their family.
What did you want to be when you were little?
A pilot because flying is awesome! It’s crazy to think about that only 150 years ago, you couldn’t fly.
