As strategic technical consultant for Water, Chris is responsible for building on Stantec’s services and resources in the areas of asset and catchment solutions for the sector.
Experienced at executive director level, Chris has worked with operators, regulators, non-government organisations and stakeholders for more than 25 years. He has delivered landmark projects and stood as an expert witness at a public inquiry. Chris has a history of building high functioning teams and delivering best in class services, which have influenced policy makers and best practice. His sector experience is primarily water enhanced by broader experience in ports & harbours; marine renewable energy; mining; and oil & gas.
Chris believes the community is more engaged with water than ever before, and it is our professional responsibility to think and design with community in mind. That means focusing on our desired outcomes (e.g. water quality, environment, flood protection, resilience) throughout the catchment and being holistically integrated in our water cycle thinking.
