Due to COVID-19, many workplaces, including corporate office buildings and coworking environments, have closed for the foreseeable future, leaving many buildings unoccupied. When shelter-in-place orders are lifted, the health and safety of the workforce will be a primary concern for employers to ensure employees can return to their normal workspaces without fear of exposure. To do this, spaces should be engineered to accommodate social distancing and mitigate the potential spread of infection for those reentering the workplace.

For Steven Neville, these are traits that allow him to thrive as our mixed use practice director while working with some of our premier clients. He is also a talented darts player, which always aligns with his role in keeping his team on target. Steven runs point for our mixed use practice that includes workplace, hospitality, and housing, working with our experts in those respective verticals on strategy and execution. Since joining Henderson in 2006, he has excelled in keeping things moving in the right direction and maximizing the strengths of each fellow team member to position his squad for success.

A strong believer that environments where people live, work, and play are essential to community success, Steven brings a forward-thinking mindset to all the developments he works on.
