Chris' expertise focuses on delivering innovative, implementable, constructible, and cost-effective remediation designs from inception to construction, completion, and closeout. Chris combines his passion for applying best practices in engineering, science and leadership with his understanding of stakeholder goals, and ability to communicate complex technical information across diverse platforms to solve challenging problems, inspire creative-energized teams, and execute effective environmental solutions.
His practice encompasses all facets of remediation design and construction planning including: feasibility evaluation and pre-design project organization; coordination of technology-specific treatability studies; design document preparation and review; bid and contract preparation and procurement; on-site construction coordination and management; on-site construction quality assurance and quality control (CQA/CQC); and construction documentation at solid waste facilities and brownfields. Examples include serving as remedial design engineer-of-record and remedial action coordinator for a major Superfund project; quality control and quality assurance manager for a large Great Lakes Area of Concern (AOC) sediment dredging project; and providing remediation designs and remediation construction implementation for numerous manufactured gas plant (MGP) sites. His project experience also includes completing several feasibility studies and alternative selections at coal combustion residuals (CCR) disposal facilities.
A recognized leader on the design and application of in situ solidification/stabilization (ISS) technology for MGP, sediment and CCR facilities, Chris has authored multiple peer reviewed technical presentations and papers at various conferences and industry groups on the topic of ISS. In 2005, Chris led the design/construction team that earned the American Society of Civil Engineers' Engineering Achievement Award for the Historic Fox River Canal and Adjacent Property Restoration and Reconstruction.
