Baltu Yorkos loves cities.
As the founder and principal of YEC Engineering, Baltu is dedicated to understanding the building design in complex cities to embrace MEP systems with architecture.

Applying engineering design process with multiple variables and implementing it to the buildings and facilities quickly became his passion.
