Patti Kaufmann LEED AP

Mechanical Designer

Home Office: Bend

Patti has over 30 years of HVAC design experience and has specialized in the design of higher education, research, and healthcare facilities all around the country. She earned her LEED credential in 2011 and has worked on several LEED-certified projects, including buildings that have achieved Silver, Gold, and Platinum ratings.

Patti recently moved to Oregon with her husband and son. Based in Bend, it’s no surprise her favorite activities happen outside. She enjoys hiking along the Deschutes River with her dog, though her true passion has been cycling for an exceptionally long time. She simply cannot get over the unbelievable mountain bike trails Bend has to offer, and she plans to volunteer for the Oregon Interscholastic Cycling League, which empowers kids through mountain biking. Her second passion: beekeeping. Someday, she’ll have her own hive.
