Chris believes he is a man born too late in time. There was a time when the architect was also the master builder, and this was Chris’s time! The joy he gets from designing is only matched by the joy he gets from building – that’s if you ignore the joy he gets from drinking single malt whisky!, and has progressed over time from enthusiastic DIYer to fully fledged self-builder,
Chris has spent the 34 years of his professional life as an Architect in private practice with most of this time spent in a Senior Management role be it Partner, Director or MD. As a founding member of Arkilab, this new venture enables him to pass on the experience of practice management to a fresh generation and concentrate on his passion for building and maintaining strong relationships with Clients in order to help the new business grow and flourish.
His knowledge and experience covers all sectors, procurement routes and construction methodologies with the emphasis in recent years on education, primary healthcare and modern methods and off-site construction.
