Heather Schuster PE
Heather Schuster joined GACE in 2008. During her time at the firm, she has managed an array of different project types, with an emphasis in concrete residential high-rise construction.
What Heather loves most about structural engineering is the feeling of satisfaction that comes with finishing a project precisely and completely, as with the recently completed Provost Square block A, in Jersey City. This 38-story residential tower is the largest and most complex project Heather has managed from start to finish.
Other notable projects include 18 West 56th Street – a 16-story concrete hotel building with full-story steel truss at the rear, the Dickstein Cancer Treatment Center expansion in White Plains, and 27-41 West Street in Brooklyn – a residential development consisting of four concrete towers ranging from 20-40 stories (currently in design).
In addition to managing her projects, Heather serves on GACE’s Quality Control Committee to help maintain GACE’s QC guidelines and specifications. She is also a founding member of our new Recruitment Committee, developing strategies to attract bright new engineers to join our staff.
Heather holds a Bachelor’s degree in Civil and Structural Engineering from Cornell University. She is licensed as a Professional Engineer in the State of New York and is a member of the Structural Engineers Association of New York (SEAoNY).
