Our Team

Jason Baker, PE, LEED AP

Partner, Senior Mechanical Engineer,

“This firm is all about being part of something bigger—together—than we can be as individuals.”

Jason Baker is a LEED® Accredited Professional in the firm’s Education Studio. His length of service to DC gives him a unique perspective on the firm’s expertise. The secret, Baker believes, is Design Collaborative’s people-first mindset. This is particularly true in the Education Studio, where we nurture enduring client relationships—which often include designing complex, sophisticated campus-based systems, spread across multiple buildings. These projects—of all sizes—benefit from DC’s institutional knowledge and collaborative model, which he helps lead. Baker is humble, hungry and smart. He enjoys working alongside clients to take things apart, then put them back together—gaining a full understanding of the fundamental ‘whys’ of each project, and ensuring each building block is aligned in reaching our shared goals.
