Due to COVID-19, warehouses have played a crucial role in keeping the retail and grocery industries running, powering online shopping and supporting the delivery of essential goods. Now more than ever it is critical to protect the health and safety of essential workers, while keeping the facilities they work in operational. To do this, we’ve developed building systems design guidelines to help mitigate any potential spread of infection, allowing them to support the high demand being experienced by this infrastructure around the country.

About the Authors

Justin Harvey

Warehouse & Distribution Practice Director | Associate
When Justin Harvey was a teenager in Texas, a teacher told him he possessed the skills to become a talented architectural engineer. She was right, and Justin has never looked back. He joined our Henderson Engineers team in Houston following graduation from the University of Kansas and has thrived ever since returning to the Lone Star State. Building and designing have always come natural to Justin, which aligns well with his role as an associate and the director of Henderson’s warehouse & distribution practice. He leads our team of experts on large-scale designs of facilities to maximize supply chains for some of the world’s biggest retailers. Justin excels at coordination and providing value to clients throughout the design and construction process. He can also talk in-depth about motorized sorting conveyors and forklift battery chargers, among a myriad of other topics for our distribution centers that have earned LEED Gold certification. We saw something special in Justin when he joined us in 2004. Thankfully, Mrs. Sanders noticed it more than a decade before us.
