Chris has one of those minds that’s always thinking about how to build something himself and make it even better, so engineering was the perfect career path. Prior to joining KFI, he’d always been on a contracting firm’s team, as opposed to an engineering firm’s team. The thought of being involved in the early stage of building construction sounded appealing. He’s a task-oriented self-starter who enjoys building automation. “I get to witness the way all the individual parts of a building start to work together.”
An electrical engineer with over 25 years of industry experience, Chris is an expert in controls design, installation, and operation. He has extensive design and project management experience with various control system designs including boiler and chiller plants, VAV air handlers and associated terminal units, process designs with unique pressure, temperature, and humidity requirements. In addition to providing standalone controls design, Chris integrates controls into KFI’s designs to ensure proper sequences and strategies are being used.
Chris has past training and experience with the following systems:
- Honeywell XL5000
- Honeywell WEBs
- Johnson Controls Facility Explorer
- Schneider Electric SmartStruxture
- Andover Continuum
- Delta OrcaView
- Distech EC-gfx
- Richards-Zeta Mediator
He spends his out-of-office time with family and making sawdust at the sawmill or woodshop.
