After 14 years at ESG managing a diverse and award-winning portfolio of restaurant, workplace and renovation projects, Heather now applies her considerable expertise to the design and construction of new hotels and commercial buildings, and complex renovation projects. Proactive in her problem solving, she takes a detailed approach to every project. Heather clearly communicates the desired scope of a project and accurately places a value on her team’s design effort, then follows through on that promise.
Heather touches every aspect of a project to ensure thoroughness and consistency. She maximizes budgets to incorporate gorgeous design details that elevate projects beyond client expectations. While efficiently managing multiple projects, Heather makes sure each client receives her utmost attention. In doing so, she nurtures profitable, long-lasting relationships with repeat clients, who specifically ask for her again and again.
As one client said, “Heather’s role in a project from concept to completion is key to our success at delivering world-class brands with memorable experiences.” Even as she works on larger and more complex projects, she’s mentoring the next generation of architects at ESG, so the firm’s work on smaller projects continues to bear her exacting imprint.
