Mike Sabo started his career as an engineer upon graduating from Penn State University in 1994. After leaving State College, his journey began at General Dynamics in Groton, CT where he worked on nuclear submarines. Next up was Atlanta where he continued to grow professionally at several different companies over the course of his 15-year sojourn. It was there in 2012 that he co-founded Budova Engineering, a consulting firm specializing in sustainability in the built environment. In 2014, the company’s headquarters moved to Maryland, and now Budova operates out of both locations.
In the middle of his trek up and down the East Coast, Mike returned to Penn State for graduate school and later became a Professional Engineer. He is also a Certified Commissioning Authority [CxA], a Certified Energy Manager [CEM], and a LEED Accredited Professional [LEED AP]. Mike is a member of AIA Baltimore, USGBC Maryland, ASHRAE Baltimore, and BCxA.
For the past 15 years, he has focused on facilities engineering and management. Mike’s consulting expertise includes building commissioning, energy audits, energy modeling, green building consulting, facility condition assessments, utility/infrastructure studies, and life cycle cost analysis.
When not improving the energy efficiency of a commercial building or reducing its carbon footprint, Mike is rooting for all Penn State sports teams, fishing, or coaching his sons’ sports teams.
