“I love visualizing the final product and the feeling of satisfaction of being part of a design team that has developed Construction Documents within budget and that meets the architectural vision."
Chris wears many hats since joining the firm in 2003. The Problem Solver/Project Manager also heads up the Kalispell office, working alongside three engineers to provide structural solutions for a variety of projects throughout Montana. For example, Chris was challenged to come up with structural support for several giant satellite dishes on the curved roof an 80-year-old building. His father was a contractor and, upon graduating from Montana State University with an engineering degree in 1999, Chris has become an expert in both wood frame construction and log construction.
On the weekends, Chris spends his time coaching baseball and introducing his two sons to the Montana outdoors.
