Considering the sentence:

I'd like to do ... in such a way that ... is achieved.

Does this sound wordy? If so, is there a way to streamline it?

"So" should do? "I'd like to do ..., so (that) ... is achieved."

You can directly substitute it with "in a manner that". Not much shorter, granted, but if you want to avoid repetition it may be of use to you.

I'd like to write this sentence in a manner that highlights my answer.
