Chris has over a decade's experience working in architectural practices in NSW and the United Kingdom. Upon graduating with honours in 2003 and receiving the NSW Department of Commerce Prize for Architecture Chris has been fortunate enough to work in a variety of project typologies including health, infrastructure, commercial, retail, recreation and residential. This experience extends to all aspects of a project from inception and feasibility through to master planning, design, documentation, coordination, contract administration, commissioning and occupation. Chris’s wide range of experience within architecture enables him to enjoy translating design methodologies and construction techniques between project typologies to realise enhanced, enjoyable, built outcomes.
