Relocating to Sydney in 1997, Chris played a pivotal role in the establishment and expansion of RBG’s NSW business operations.

With a specialised focus in adaptive reuse, heritage refurbishments, forensic engineering, and wharf projects, Chris has been at the forefront of numerous iconic endeavours in Sydney.

Among the highlights of Chris’s illustrious career is the Walsh Bay Pier 6/7 project, which stands as a testament to his ability to deliver excellence across his projects. The RBG team, under Chris’ guidance, developed a unique construction methodology that not only added significant value to the project but also garnered industry acclaim. Despite the complexity of the methodology, the project was executed on-time and within budget, earning multiple accolades for its groundbreaking approach.
