When Michael Baker Jr. first established his engineering firm in 1940, he envisioned a company that would serve as a property surveyor or designer of roads, bridges, buildings and sewage systems, and also as a trusted, long-term partner with local communities and distant nations. His employees strove to transform communities, companies, states and even nations, adopting dual roles as both caring neighbors and innovative nation builders. Baker instilled in his employees the drive to deliver improved quality of life and the desire to make a difference.
 
Baker built a lasting legacy that today forms the foundation on which we continue to serve and grow. Today, we continue to leverage our collective expertise and experience to make the communities we serve better. We strive to make them safer, more accessible, more environmentally sustainable and more livable. We facilitate their transformation supported by differentiating innovation, technologies and dedicated employees. We are change agents, leading our partners around the world into the future.
 
Our greatest differentiator, though, is our employees who demonstrate a world-class ability to solve complex problems. That’s why we engage our people, educate and train them, develop their careers, and invest in their futures. We give them opportunities around the world to exercise and expand their skills and expertise. We reward innovation and collaboration that lead to the best solutions for our clients. As a company, We Make a Difference.
