Profile

The Firm

The firm of Evans Heintges Architects PLLC provides a full range of architectural design, master planning, and technical consultation services. In its 23 years of practice the company has designed buildings and has served as exterior wall consultant for institutional, commercial, and residential projects throughout the world. Our firm’s extensive experience enables us to propose the best possibilities available for your project, including innovative sustainable design practices, materials sourcing both locally and abroad, and unique methods of design or construction delivery.

The primary goal of our firm is to achieve a contemporary synthesis of the aesthetic and cultural issues of our times in order to produce the highest quality architectural design beneficial to the building’s owner, its occupants, and the public at large. Where all architecture springs from a professional understanding of health, life-safety, and code issues, the architect must integrate these diverse forces with the owner’s goals, including program and budget, and the physical context of the site in order to design a successful project.

Evans Heintges Architects combines the ability to provide award-winning architectural design with the unique capability of providing exterior cladding consulting services. As a result, our firm understands how to integrate sophisticated high-technology curtain walls with the building’s structural and mechanical systems to provide an environmentally sustainable, green project. Thus, we provide our clients with a complete architectural design package: from master planning and site analysis to concept design and detailing buildings that are environmentally sensitive, energy efficient, and user friendly.
