He has contributed to the development of pattern books, master planning, design review, and compliance inspections in many of the new urbanist communities in North Florida and South Carolina. His experience also includes the traditional roles of design and project management for retail, assembly spaces, and residential projects within these communities. In Florida, these include WaterColor, WaterSound, Saint George Island, SouthWood, and SummerCamp. While working in South Carolina, Chris’s efforts included projects in Historic Downtown Beaufort and Charleston, I’on Village, Distant Island, and Habersham.
