Alec Carnes


As the Chief Operating Officer for HEAPY, Alec leads a dynamic group of professional engineers, technicians, and support staff focused on providing REAL Collaboration, REAL Performance, and REAL Inspiration to their Clients and their Colleagues. This holistic approach to Engineering Design, Commissioning, and Optimization service creates a superior experience for our Clients, financial sustainability for our company, and a pathway to growth and engagement for ourselves and our colleagues.

The Operations Team has developed a unique process to engage with the Client and their project from concept to occupancy. This engagement process focuses on understanding the critical Guiding Principles for the Client and driving achievement and integration of these principles during all stages of the project. Our process will challenge conventional thinking at all times to ensure the team achieves what the Client “wants and needs” in lieu of what we did before. This “thought leadership” continually focuses on Clients’ operational needs with a significant thought given opportunities to impact energy performance, sustainability and resilience.

Supporting the HEAPY commitment to true Thought Leadership, the Operations Team maintains an extensive and robust Professional Development program centered on technical expertise and an evolved understanding of team dynamics and communication. By maintaining and growing HEAPY University, our Operations Team facilitates our colleagues developing and growing their best in class skillsets which are the foundation for our success, our growth, and our ability to create a more resilient and sustainable society.
