With a career background in contracts and project management within the Office fit-out sector, Chris has been a major asset to the ‘Design Team’ of Space Industries since he joined in 2013.
After leaving Bournemouth and Poole College of Further Education, Chris joined a joinery company in Reading as an apprentice joiner, finishing and becoming and indentured joiner. This early knowledge and interest in woodworking gave Chris his passion to draw up, design and use those carpentry skills around his home and most recently to build a bespoke garden office that is definitely not a ‘shed’.
In 2000, Chris decided on a change of direction and having trained in AutoCAD, became a member of the design team for a large London based interiors company, where he was specifically responsible for Building Control and Planning applications. Later, he also oversaw construction on site and ensured the projects were completed to a high standard.
Working his way up through the career ladder of various companies, from Contracts Manager to Senior Contracts Manager, Chris eventually decided in 2010 to devote himself full-time to providing freelance CAD services. These skills are complementary to other members of the Space Industries design team.
Chris says, “I am a detail man – I get a lot of satisfaction out of considering a project from all angles to identify any potential obstacles and offer my solutions to them”.
