Project Team Experience

 Troy D. Gray - Licensed Building and Plumbing Inspector

 I’m a creative thinker with expert knowledge in multiple areas of commercial and residential construction.  I have 16 years of progressive experience in Inspections, Staff Leadership and Project Management; a total of 39 years in all construction fields.  I have planned, initiated, and inspected numerous ground-up projects including: Lakeway Regional Hospital, Lifetime Fitness, and the six-story Sonesta Hotel in Bee Cave, numerous large apartment complexes of 400 plus units. I have performed over 31,000 individual inspections. I’ve consulted with city agencies, private companies and property owner associations on how to create their own inspection departments and to assist in developing their own comprehensive plan for their neighborhood and city ordinances. 

They are given the knowledge of the most current international building codes in the United States as well as the most current uniform plumbing and international plumbing codes. By doing so, the resident's safety and well-being are protected. I hold the following:
