Our People

J. Michael “Mike” Barnes, PE, LEED AP

I love the world we live in. I’ve always been fascinated with the built environment, something tangible that you can see or touch, rather than something that’s obscure. I love walking through the city and seeing the people of our communities walk or run on trails, children playing in parks, spectators enjoying a concert in places that we have helped create. I feel a sense of pride as our neighbors go off to work in a building or children and young adults in a school or college that we helped develop. When I see these small moments, those that are usually taken for granted by most of us as we go about our daily lives, I feel that somehow I have made an impact, no matter how small, in making the lives of my fellow citizens better.”
