25 Years of TSA – here’s to 25 more!

The Original Vision:

Tracy Stocking & Associates was founded on January 1, 1996 – in a one-room office at 1537 South Main in Salt Lake City.  Although he had no capital, no employees, and no projects, Tracy took a leap of faith based on his love of architecture and construction. He built the business on his philosophy of integrity, responsiveness and professionalism mixed with a desire for continual improvement.  Tracy developed long-standing relationships with clients by providing outstanding customer satisfaction by helping them meet deadlines, budgets, and advance their mission.

Early clients included The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, AT&T, JMM Properties, Chasebrook Companies, and the University of Utah.

The Evolution:

Thanks to several early opportunities in Healthcare and Senior Living, Tracy gravitated to clients with a human-centered mission. The addition of partners Nathan Murray and Doug Banks – each outstanding and respected healthcare architects – brought strength to TSA that was valued by the most prominent heath care clients in the intermountain region. In addition to University of Utah Health, the firm has developed long-term relationships with clients such as Intermountain Healthcare, HCA (Mountainstar), Steward Healthcare, and the VAMC System.
