Chris’s clients know him as someone who simplifies the complex and helps them to not only see but understand the implications of his hydrology and hydraulics work on their projects. He enjoys and excels at putting the pieces of a site design puzzle together – gathering the data to understand potential or realized flooding, coordinating proposed utilities with existing utilities, identifying a grading approach that sets the building, and finding a balanced approach to the earthwork.
Throughout Chris’s more than 20-year career of solving water-related and site design engineering problems, he has prepared analyses, designs, and recommendations for municipal, airport, Departments of Transportation, commercial building, cellular tower and land-development projects across the U.S., primarily in the western states.
“I find hydrology work fascinating – gathering the various rainfall, geologic, and topographic data to put together a picture of potential or realized flooding. Once I piece the puzzle together, the finished design helps my clients to ‘see’ and understand the implications of the work on their overall project – it’s very satisfying for me, and for them.”
