Since joining Ballinger in 2010, Michael Radio has designed flexible, highly sustainable engineering solutions for systems-intensive buildings including central plants, academic research facilities, and hospitals. Mike utilizes advanced energy modeling tools as a predictive measure for informed decision-making throughout the design process. Prior to joining Ballinger, Mike helped major healthcare facilities improve their resiliency and reliability by designing on-site microgrid facilities, allowing hospitals to be islanded from the power grid during outages. Mike actively engages the engineering community as a Studio Leader at Ballinger and through his work with ASHRAE. In 2016 he was recognized with the Philadelphia Chapter’s Young Engineer of ASHRAE Award. He served as president of the chapter for the 2018-2019 term and received the Presidential Award of Excellence in recognition of significant improvement in membership, attendance, programs and technology. Mike earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics from Drexel University.
