“I have worked almost exclusively in healthcare, laboratory, and cleanroom environments. This has given me a great deal of knowledge and experience when it comes to the technical systems and equipment required for these areas. My time at EAB has prepared me well to serve in the testing and certification of these critical environments.”
Jared’s Time at EAB
Jared’s working career began by joining the Army National Guard as a Military Police Instructor in 2004. He achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant, served several overseas tours, and had periods of active-duty service. We are incredibly grateful for his service.
After returning home from combat in 2008, Jared transitioned to a civilian job and began his career at EAB. Over the years, Jared acquired the technical knowledge and training needed to perform Testing and Balancing services. He found his niche in healthcare and laboratories environments. During this time, he discovered that his clients had a need for Critical Environment Certification services. This was not a service that EAB provided at the time, but he saw the opportunity for EAB to fill this need.
By 2013, Jared’s consistency and hard work paid off and he earned the title of Project Supervisor. As the years progressed, Jared witnessed firsthand the still-present need to provide Critical Environment Certification services for his Houston clients. Meanwhile, the EAB Dallas team discovered the same need, and because of EAB’s expertise in HVAC equipment, our team became the best equipped to deliver these services. EAB made the decision in 2017 to provide limited CEC services for existing clients and develop our CEC program.
In 2022, Critical Environment Certification services were officially added to EAB’s list of services. Jared received his Cleanroom Certification Engineer through AABC in 2022 and was essential in bringing CEC services to EAB’s Houston clients. Jared currently serves as a Project Coordinator and oversees CEC services for laboratory, higher education, and healthcare clients in Houston.
Over the course of his career, Jared has been involved in many projects, and has had some significant moments. Here are just a glimpse of some of his milestone Critical Environment Certification projects:
Jared served as the Project Lead for the Critical Environment Semi-Annual Certifications for University of Texas MD Anderson. Jared was essential in establishing this program with MD Anderson. The program involves the testing and semi-annual certification of all their most critical on-site and satellite facilities, including all operating rooms, airborne isolation rooms, sterile compounding pharmacies, radio pharmacies, vivarium, GMP facilities, sterile processing departments, and many other critical sites.
Over the course of three years, Jared was the Project Lead for the University of Texas McGovern Medical School renovations and air handler replacement projects. This series of projects involved the complete HVAC overhaul of this seven-story medical school building.
Jared served as the Project Lead for the KBI Biopharma project. This was a significant project because of the level of technical complexity of the GMP manufacturing facility. Jared and his team set up the entire facility to pass the initial critical environment certification.
We are very proud of the leadership Jared has shown to our team. His dedication to delivering an optimum operating facility with passionate integrity is one reason he is such a great teammate. We are so thankful for the work he has done to help EAB become a leader in Critical Environment Certification.
