Barry Finkelstein, PE
Senior Principal


As Engineering Senior Principal, Barry Finkelstein promotes a passion for campus utility infrastructure renewal. At Ballinger he has fostered the design of major high performance cooling, heating and cogeneration plants to improve efficiencies and lower operating costs. He began his 40-year career designing boiler and chiller plants in Baltimore. He founded what is now a major engineering firm there in the early 1980’s where he developed a reputation for designing unconventional solutions for technologically complex facilities. He was one of the first engineers to use molecular sieve energy recovery wheels on a major new research facility (1988; the Ross Building at Johns Hopkins Medical School).  Barry presents frequently at national forums on energy conservation and facilities design. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University.
