Mission and Leadership

Mission

Our goal is to work with our clients and community leaders to create a sense of sustained value in the land we develop, now and for the future.

Founder's Story

Gregory C. Newell, PE and Stephen G. Nave, PE established Nave Newell in 1992 after 17 years of friendship which started in eighth grade and continued on to Drexel University, where both studied civil engineering. Their shared values led them to build a company with a foundation of listening to and understanding clients, establishing long-term relationships, and providing extraordinary customer service. Over the years, things have changed, including the firm name, services offered, and office locations; but Greg’s philosophy has always remained and is reflected in the Nave Newell Way.

Today, Nave Newell is a multidiscipline consulting firm with 40 professionals who specialize in land development. We provide civil engineering, land planning, surveying, and landscape architecture services to real estate developers and property owners throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region. Located in Wayne, PA our relationships with local municipalities and agencies have allowed us to secure approvals for clients in an effective manner.

Leadership

Nave Newell’s leaders have a passion for excellence and are committed to maintaining high quality staff who exemplify professional integrity, technical competence, and pride in their work. We set high standards for ourselves and take personal responsibility for our work. We know the image we present reflects upon our clients’ reputation just as much as it does our own.
