Energy efficiency is inextricable from enclosure design, and Heintges & Associates approaches thermal performance, user comfort, cost savings, and environmental efficiency as thoroughly interdependent considerations. Through independent analysis, research, and daily practice, Heintges seeks to design highly efficient enclosures that mutually benefit building owners and society at large, and improve the long-term welfare of the natural environment.
Heintges’ staff includes LEED-accredited professionals as well as engineers and architects who are specialists in the principles of energy transfer in building systems. The firm is committed to data-driven and quantifiable sustainable design strategies and maintains an array of specialized tools for both the empirical testing and the mathematical modeling of energy-efficient designs. Robert Heintges is an invited member of the New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Green Codes Task Force, whose mission is to revise and renew NYC building codes in a manner that will position New York City on the forefront of sustainable design in light of the threats posed by climate change.
