Chris’ career arc has advanced into an expertise. Working with developers on large scale commercial real estate projects, he is adept at master planning and feasibility studies to quickly arrive at proof of concept, Chris also excels at translating these concepts into fruition: testing the formula and embracing the complexity of constructibility. He views large, intricate projects as analogous to a marathon runner: the external performance informed by a meticulously conscious tuned system working synergistically toward a singular goal, resulting in a solution that is specific to the owner’s needs.

"Integrated design is the holistic process of solving a client’s needs through systemic, coordinated, and comprehensive study that considers environment, materials, and human interaction."

This ability to conceive and consider the entire building, embrace accountability, and lead a culture of mutual respect in interdisciplinary teams contributes to Chris’ track record of building relationships with patrons, not just clients.
