Heidi has led multiple initiatives within BuroHappold dealing with internal sustainability, wellness and diversity. The LA office received LEED-CI Platinum certification and Los Angeles Green Business certification. In 2014, Heidi led an internal happiness workshop for the LA office that resulted in a number of improvements including better lighting design, solutions to heating and cooling problems and a weekly office yoga program. In support of a firm-wide diversity initiative, Heidi proposed that BuroHappold North America pursue the JUST Label. BHNA is registered and currently developing the policy, diversity and pay-scale data needed for reporting to this transparent database.
