Baird & Associates
Founded in 1981, their mission is to provide the best in engineering and science in coastal, riverine, estuarine and ocean environments. Baird is one team worldwide, dedicated to bringing their clients their expertise and passion on every project. Baird is built by innovators, pioneers and visionaries who proudly and consistently serve their clients with professionalism, dedication, and creativity. Their team is always looking for new opportunities to help create a better future for their coastal resources and communities.
Baird has worked exclusively ‘where water meets land’ in river, estuary and coastal environments for almost four decades. They are an organization of scientists, engineers and designers specializing in professional services exclusively for projects at the land-water interface. They undertake projects ranging in size from small planning studies to designs of large development projects with construction costs in excess of $150 million.
Baird has developed a key philosophy as a firm that distinguishes them from their competitors. They are dedicated to integrating the scientific components of a project with excellence in design and engineering. Their niche modeling expertise is applied frequently, they are experienced and efficient at doing the work, they understand the limitations and uncertainties associated with these techniques, and how they translate into decisions on the ground. This blend of expertise provides Baird the ability to deliver innovative and cost-effective solutions on very complex and challenging projects.
Scientists and engineers participate on all their projects from concept through analysis and modeling to design implementation. Their success is founded on their ability to communicate with each other in a clear and open manner. They embrace the discipline to listen to, and to understand, the needs and views of their clients and of stakeholder groups.See more
