About me.

Hi there!!  I am Heather Bemis.  I have practiced architecture for over 15 years with a focus on Higher Education and Science + Technology buildings.  I have managed large, complex projects throughout my career, but only found true success once I was introduced to a scheduling process known as pull planning.  Once I learned about this process, I made it my mission to implement it on every project I managed moving forward.

As the years went on, my excitement for scheduling and organizing workflow continued to increase.  For the next 7 years, I shared my enthusiasm with all of the design studios and offices of the large architectural firm I worked for by facilitating their workflow plans.  With each pull plan I facilitated, the process kept getting better and better.  I was able to establish continuous improvement through accountability, communication, and transparency.  

I am a licensed architect in 3 states, a LEED AP BD+C professional, a project manager, a strategist, a schedule enthusiast, and an engaging facilitator.  I am SWAP Integration...and I would love to work with you and your team on your next project!

I am married to the love of my life, Trey, and we have a beautiful daughter, Tessa.  We live outside of Denver, CO.  We enjoy hiking, skiing, college football, and dancing the two-step at our local honky-tonk.

"...What makes it successful is it's very collaborative.  All stakeholders, whether the Client, Contractor, Engineer, can all participate and have a say in the process and reap the benefits."

Tim, Project Architect


"Heather was amazing in her listening to what each person said and incorporating everyone into the team.  She was like an orchestra leader.  People chose to participate and commit to the schedule and deadline.  They bought in easily and comfortably.  It all made sense.  People left happy and organized and a part of the team.  It really was impressive."

David, Owners Representative + Financing

"The facilitator of the pull plan is critical to the success of the tool.  Heather Bemis understands all the roles of all players on the team and how each member impacts another.  She also has the experience and understanding of the construction process to help the team prepare for the proper planning efforts.  Her approach is realistic!"

Michelle, Design Principal
