Derek LePore

Fransen Pittman | CO

“With Heather's guidance and collaborative approach our team was able to maintain schedule and budget throughout the entire design process from concept design to getting shovels in the dirt...there would have been no way possible to stay on schedule without the leadership and tools of SWAP Integration.”

"Heather’s work on the Albany Airport project was truly critical.  She not only led the team in creating a schedule, but also led weekly meetings, which kept the team on track with the many tasks throughout design.  Her approach created a sense of ownership of all team members to the success of the project."

Meet Heather

Prior to founding SWAP Integration, Heather practiced architecture for over 15 years with a focus on Higher Education and Science + Technology buildings. Heather successfully managed large, complex projects throughout her career, but only found true success after being introduced to a scheduling process known as pull planning. Once becoming an expert on this process, Heather made it her mission to implement it on every project she managed.

For the next 7 years, she facilitated workflow plans for the large architectural firm she was working for - sharing her appreciation for efficient scheduling with anyone who would listen. With each pull plan Heather facilitated, she was able to establish continuous improvement through accountability, communication, and transparency from which SWAP Integration blossomed.

Heather is married to the love of her life, Trey, and they have two beautiful daughters, Tessa and Sylvie. Heather enjoys hiking, skiing, college football,volleyball (sand and court), photography, and crochet.
