Steven Baumgartner

Specialist

"Improving our built environment for a more sustainable world is a value that is important to me."

Steven specializes in strategic sustainability planning in higher education. His sweet spot is connecting the technical world of complex urban systems with people-based solutions. “I want to challenge the traditional ‘solutions’—mostly in infrastructure—that got us here in the first place,” Steven remarks. “Addressing difficult urban/campus problems requires working among diverse entities and disciplines, distilling what’s important to them and designing systems for them. I love finding those opportunities.” Steven is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and frequently speaks and writes about sustainable building and low-carbon campuses, and lectures at colleges and universities throughout the country.
