Simon Phillips Senior Associate | New York

Simon is responsible for business development and overseeing Inhabit’s operations in the United States.

With 12 years of experience across three continents, his position at Inhabit sees him collaborating with some of the world’s most respected architects and developers. With extensive experience in the design and engineering of buildings, as well as the knowledge required for practical, value-conscious construction, Simon has a strong emphasis on the delivery of premium finishes that hold both aesthetic appeal as well as practical buildability, efficient design, and cost effectiveness. This has led to him working with renowned brands, architects, developers, and contractors including Zaha Hadid, Columbia University, MAD Architects, Siemens, and Roschmann Group.

Simon’s strengths lie in identifying potential problems at an early stage and providing a path to minimise risk and ensure a streamlined development process that runs smoothly and efficiently. He is able to guide stakeholders at all stages of a project from concept to construction, with a solid technical background as well as an ability to step back and make sure the whole picture is not lost in the details. Providing technical input as well as overseeing business development in North America allows Simon to keep a keen eye on market trends and emerging patterns in the industry, which in turn keeps Inhabit at the forefront of development.
