His design portfolio features large public and private projects throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin, including K-12 and university projects, government renovation and energy assessments, corporate office buildings, athletic facilities, and civic and industrial facilities.

A graduate of North Dakota State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture and Environmental Design, Heinle is licensed in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
