Ms. Heider’s 29 years of professional experience include all phases of design and construction from master planning through project closeout as licensed architect, construction manager, cost manager and value engineering (VE) facilitator. She has completed studies on a variety of initiatives from the “conventional” value analysis of over 100 projects to specialty studies for the Federal Government exploring the cost commitment necessary for public buildings to become “green” (1998), to enhance workplace productivity (2000), to achieve LEED certification (LEED Cost Study, 2004) and to comply with the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (2006 & 2007).
