Steve is the Studio Leader for the firm’s Healthcare projects. He first joined the firm with a special interest in the design and construction of healthcare facilities and served as Job Captain, Construction Administrator, and Project Manager on a broad spectrum of healthcare projects. In 1997, he left the firm to work as the Director of Construction Management for a 500-bed healthcare facility. When he returned to SLAM in 2000 as a healthcare project manager, he brought with him a new appreciation and understanding for the challenges faced by healthcare administrators.
