Meet Chris, our Project Manager

When did you start working for Northfield Construction Company? Would you describe your job for us?

I worked with Northfield Construction from 1992-2009. I started out as as a carpenter foreman and was promoted to a Project Manager in 2001. I started again in October of 2016 as a Project Manager. I am in charge of meeting with customers, estimating projects, arranging subcontractors, etc. I get to work with a job from start to finish. I enjoy working with projects of every size — people are interesting!

Can you tell us a little bit about your previous construction/carpentry experience?

I’ve been in the industry since 1985. I’ve worked on both large and small projects ranging from bathroom remodels to big commercial buildings.

When you aren’t at NCC, who do you spend your time with? Tell us a little bit about your family!

My wife and I are empty-nesters, with one pup. We enjoy time with our 2 kids when they are visiting from college.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? I enjoy spending time at our family cabin in Hayward, WI. I like fishing and traveling, too.

What has been your favorite NCC project? Why?

I loved developing some property in Faribault, MN. We took land and worked with the community to get a Subway and Starbucks built at virtually the same time. It was a fun project and I learned a lot.
