Behind the scenes at Faber: Meet Chris
At Faber, we’re pretty good at sharing the amazing work we do through our Portfolio and Before and After pages. But we thought it was high time we allowed you a peek at our inner workings; a closer look at the team responsible for making the magic happen; who they are, what they do – plus 10 quickfire questions to see what really makes them tick.
This is Chris, our Contracts Director. Before joining us at Faber, he worked in various roles within the construction industry, including estimator, quantity surveyor, project manager, commercial director and divisional director. This means he’s our resident guru on anything to do with commercial/contractual issues on our projects.
Outside of work, Chris’s interests include cycling, football, music, dining out, playing FIFA and spending time with his son, Wyatt. A Brummie born and bred, his career plan B would be to play central midfield for Aston Villa.
