Baird, Hampton & Brown is saddened yet excited to reflect upon the recent retirement of Konstantine Bakintas, PE after being a key leader in the firm, and part of the family, for 29 years. His tenure and leadership with BHB included spreading our vision to Grapevine by opening and running an office there for 17 years, and it included time as President of the corporation where he pioneered our success for seven years.
Konstantine began his career in 1985, working alongside BHB’s three founders at another engineering firm. In 1993, the year after BHB was founded, he was hired as our ninth employee. He was named Principal in 1996, established our Grapevine office in 2005, and was elected President in 2013.
He has been heavily involved in professional organizations, serving as President of the Texas Society of Professional Engineers in the Mid-Cities Chapter and at the state level. He has been recognized as Engineer of the Year by the DFW Mid-Cities Chapter of the Texas Society of Professional Engineers, and Distinguished Engineer by the Texas Engineering Foundation.
Over the years, Konstantine has become an invaluable asset to our team. He has extensive experience in engineering design and project management, as well as a passion for improving the landscape of our communities. Some of his most memorable projects include a tactical vehicle wash facility for the US Corps of Engineers at Fort Hood, the Glade Road & Pool Road roundabouts for the City of Colleyville, the Dry Branch Creek Regional Detention Pond for the City of Fort Worth, and the Monterra Medical Campus in Alliance Town Center. He has worked closely with several small municipalities, even serving as City Engineer for the City of Bridgeport and Town Engineer for the Town of Edgecliff Village.
