Jessica Young is a Principal at Heintges Consulting Architects & Engineers. She has extensive experience managing academic and cultural projects, and since joining the firm in 2005, has contributed to the technical design and construction of complex facades across the U.S. In particular, her priority is to marry building envelope performance with the Architect’s aesthetic vision. Ms. Young is excited about the opportunities for integrating opaque materials into façade design to meet the challenges of increasingly stringent energy codes, sustainability initiatives, and occupant comfort. She is a licensed architect in both New York and Massachusetts, and holds a Masters degree in Architecture from Columbia University.
