We officially began as Babbitt Design in May of 2000. Prior to this I had extensive experience in the architecture and construction fields. Originally enrolled in a civil engineering program at Castleton State College, I still found myself drawn to construction, which is why I engaged in this field during the summer months for three years. Finding my true calling, I obtained a degree in architectural engineering at Wentworth Institute of Technology in 1996. I was then able to work directly under several experienced architects at two firms, Streibert Associates in Newton and Architectural Partners in Watertown. Both firms were primarily focused on residential projects, some of which were multifamily and townhouse developments. Taking that knowledge and experience with the added background in construction, I moved to an upmarket design-build firm in Wellesley, CM&D. This allowed me to gain more on-site experience working directly with homeowners, as well as the contractors. Not long thereafter, requests from outside the office began to grow. After deciding to move on, I maintained a professional relationship with previous employers, which allowed for future consulting work. Together with my wife Karen, this path naturally led us to where we are today – Babbitt Design.
