Michael Baldwin


Director, Cambridge Office Leader, Partner

What I like to do in all my projects is to find the opportunities to talk to the client about passive design and sustainable buildings. Sometimes it’s about taking clients and design teams along a learning curve.

I’m a gut-feel engineer, willing to make decisions, pragmatic. For me, good design is about being appropriate. Our services design should be absolutely appropriate for the client and their project.

I strive for an end product that is something the whole project team can be proud of. And to leave behind well-liked buildings, spaces that people enjoy being inside.

You could say that my role on projects is to be the environmental conscience. Helping the design team to make the right decisions at the right time so that what finally gets built has the smallest environmental footprint. And in my experience this means delivering simple, robust, straight-forward solutions.
