Following his architectural studies at University of Westminster and experience working on a broad range of schemes encompassing residential developments, schools, hotels, retail projects and commercial fit-outs, Chris co-founded InsideOut in 2001. InsideOut is a small client-oriented practice and was initially primarily focused on residential schemes. Some 300 projects later, InsideOut now undertake projects across a variety of sectors that draw on Chris’s 25 years of experience within the construction industry. Chris currently heads up the commercial team, in parallel to his role as Managing Director of the practice. His personable manner, professionalism and strategic vision make Chris an invaluable asset to any of our clients and an exemplary team principal within our office.
