One of Montpelier Construction's founding partners, Chris has been in the building trades since the late 70's.
He began working in construction at age 20 in Colorado, and worked as a carpenter throughout the 80's in Vermont. He also raised a family, completed two degrees, and taught math and science in the Montpelier schools. In 1996, he started working collaboratively with Harry Strand and Malcolm Gray, forming Montpelier Construction in 1998.
Chris has a diverse background as a designer and a builder. His projects have ranged from a geodesic dome in E. Calais to a timber frame home in E. Montpelier, and have included numerous kitchens, bathrooms, decks and additions.
He has worked with the Vermont Center for Independent Living on accessibility projects including ramps, ADA bathrooms and kitchens. He is knowledgeable in the field of renewable energy and promotes green building practices.
Over the years, he has attended workshops and trainings in energy conservation and home performance sponsored by Efficiency Vermont and other organizations. He is part of Montpelier Construction's Home Performance Team, and is certified as a Home Performance Contractor through Efficiency Vermont.
He takes great pride and pleasure that in addition to his contracting responsibilities, he continues to work hands-on alongside the crew on his job sites.
