In 2006, German-native Oliver Baumann relocated to the United States to establish Baumann Consulting, successfully growing the business from a one-man operation to a multimillion-dollar firm with a staff of 25 located in four offices across two continents.
Oliver has two decades of experience in design, commissioning, and measurement & verification for high-performance buildings. After joining the EB-Group in Munich in 1996, he went on to establish the Building Simulation Group and later served as Project Manager for integrated building design and low-energy projects and Head of the International Projects Group. Oliver earned a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Munich in 1997.
Building on his experiences in Germany, Oliver’s expertise covers the entire lifecycle of commercial, institutional and industrial buildings and facilities, from developing innovative energy concepts to the evaluation of building performance and operation. One of the top engineering executives in the industry, Oliver earned the prestigious distinction of being named to Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine’s 40 Under 40 list in 2009.
A commitment to quality and passion for innovation lie at the heart of Oliver’s work. With a strong focus on developing strategic partnerships and synergies within the industry, he has devoted his career to advancing the goals of the sustainable building movement by optimizing the performance of buildings and communities and making energy efficiency business-as-usual on a large scale.
I really enjoy music! Playing the guitar and the piano help me to unwind from busy work days and to mentally recharge for new challenges. Commissioning systems in a building is like tuning all the instruments of an orchestra so that they can play together in harmony.
