Early Love of Building
[floatquote]I count myself lucky to have been born into a family of builders and tinkerers, and to have been instilled by my father and grandfathers with an intense commitment and drive to deliver the finest service and craftsmanship I can to my clients. Whether it’s a kitchen, bath, room addition or whole house renovation–we do 90 percent of the finish work on our projects in-house. It’s the way I’ve always done things, and it’s helped establish us among the finest remodeling companies in the country.[/floatquote]
Craftsman, Builder, Mentor
More than just a project manager, Chris is also a well renowned craftsman having installed or built much of the tile, woodwork, cabinetry and fixtures in our portfolio. He now mentors and leads our award winning team to deliver amazing projects and a comfortable, safe remodeling experience to our clients and design partners.
Discovering the Importance of Good Design
Chris traces much of WrightWorks’ success to regular collaborations with some of the most talented architectural and interior designers in the country—including numerous projects with Matt Harris, of MWHarris LLC and a recent project for the Rachael Ray Show with Kristan Cunningham, of HGTVs Design on a Dime.
“I was fortunate to learn early in my career how much of an impact professional design can have on the quality of our finished projects. It’s the difference between a client being ‘satisfied’ with your work and being completely and totally in love with it. I want the things we build to be functionally and aesthetically beautiful. While we do have our own in-house design services, we regularly partner with a number of local showrooms and design firms. As each project presents its own challenges, I work very hard for my clients and design partners to help them find just the right balance of form, function, and budget.”
Personal Philosophy and Mission Statement:
[box]“I am passionate about the transformation of my clients’ lives through the transformation of the spaces in which they live. I want the experience of renovation to be fun and empowering. I am driven to make our projects as perfect as possible—in design, materials, and craftsmanship. I have the utmost respect for the responsibility and trust we are given when hired to work in and around our clients’ most personal spaces. I strive to ensure that my employees, subcontractors, and suppliers also have that same respect and dedication–so that our clients feel safe and well cared for throughout the course of their projects. In a sea of choices, I seek to make luxury, comfort, and joy in the places you live accessible.[/box]
