Richard Heyer

As project manager, Rich's responsibilities include estimating, project scheduling, inspection reports, client relations, and managing labor to meet project budgets and deadlines. Rich began his career with Balestrieri Environmental as a project coordinator in 2012. Rich maintains his Asbestos Inspector License and Asbestos Supervisor License in Wisconsin and Michigan, as well as his Asbestos Professional License in Illinois. He has received HAZWOPER training and has completed the OSHA 10-hour construction safety training.

One of Rich's leading profession goals is to efficiently manage a project to ensure it meets a client's completion date. Rich achieves this by incorporating the most effectual equipment, ideas and qualified personnel into each project. Other professional goals include consistent client networking, and incorporating the most cost effective methods to perform our services for clients in the most economical manner.

“I strive to engage the diversity of our services to clients from a proactive approach, rather than a reactive one. A proactive approach promotes cost efficiency, organization, and overall client satisfaction.”
-- Richard Heyer, Balestrieri Environmental Project Manager

Richard has led many great Balestrieri projects from start to finish. Here are a few highlighted projects:

Baker Manufacturing Stack

St. Patrick's Parish

War Memorial Center

Former Hurd Windows & Doors

John Deere Horicon Works

Former Milwaukee Armory Commander’s House

UW Health American Family Children’s Hospital

In addition to project management, Rich has also been selected to serve on the Wisconsin Asbestos Committee and will assist with planning of the annual Wisconsin Asbestos Conference.

“Serving on the committee is a great opportunity to discuss state-wide environmental concerns from the viewpoints of regulators, trainers, other abatement companies, consultants, and OSHA. This collaboration of ideas is great in that all aspects of this industry can benefit and we can learn from each other.”

On a personal note, Rich plays a large role in helping his parents on the family farm, but still makes time for fishing, going to concerts, and renovating his home. His personal goals include traveling throughout the country and becoming more involved with his community.
