Aaron Baumgartner
Supervisor of MEP Drafting / Senior Mechanical Project Engineer


Aaron likes to say that architects design a building and engineers design what makes it run.

The motto comes from years of being behind the scenes on projects like the Brown County STEM Innovation Center, high schools, and health care settings and finding that when he’s doing his best work, it’s going unnoticed by clients. And that’s a good thing.

Design of HVAC, fire protection, and plumbing systems are just pieces in the intricate puzzle of a building, but they are critical to its operations. That requires a collaborative process among architects and engineers that is at the heart of Aaron’s appreciation for the work.

Aaron enjoys the collaboration that has all teams working at their highest level. He excels at coordinating the complex systems involved in the process, from laying out duct work and piping to electrical systems and air units. This puzzle requires communication, collaboration, and coordination at all steps along the way.

Aaron also appreciates the employee ownership aspect of Somerville, where everyone can see the fruits of their labor and work as a team to empower each other.

Outside of work, Wisconsin winters are Aaron’s happy place. With a wife, four young children and a Siberian Husky, he’s got a full house in Sobieski. So when he’s not on the snowmobile there’s plenty to keep this engineer running.
