Lauren Blas, PE, LEED AP



A versatile, up-and-coming engineer, Lauren serves the distinct yet complementary roles as a licensed  mechanical engineer and a leader of the Buffalo office’s sustainability team. Since joining the firm in 2008, she has amassed considerable professional experience as a mechanical designer for clients across the northeastern United States. She is a valued team member on eight of the firm’s LEED projects and has performed numerous building energy analyses over the last few years.

In her community, Lauren is a founding member of the Buffalo Women in STEM organization and is an active volunteer for for Buffalo Engineering Awareness for Minorities (BEAM).

Working to successfully integrate engineering and sustainability with architecture and design is a very rewarding part of my job. The best part of design for me is witnessing collaboration from different viewpoints. At the end of a day, if we can create a beautiful, safe, energy efficient buildings that people love to be in, that’s something we can be proud of.
