Office: Fond du Lac, WI
Focus: In providing general leadership and oversight of construction operations for The Commonwealth Companies, Chris is responsible for the seamless execution of our projects in the field. Chris provides support to project and site management staff during construction, ensuring all phases and partners involved in the development of our facilities are successful.
Experience: Chris received his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with an emphasis in Construction Management and a Certificate in Business. Prior to joining Commonwealth, Chris worked in design-phase and project management for 18 years with a commercial building contractor, focused primarily on the construction of healthcare facilities and corporate headquarters.
Impressive Facts: Chris has been responsible for management and oversight of $500M+ in construction projects throughout his career, impacting the landscape of many Wisconsin communities. Many of these projects received multiple awards in various publications.
Fun Stuff: When Chris and his wife are not “decompressing” by keeping up with their twin boys and their activities, he enjoys spending time with his five brothers and sisters along with his father in the Milwaukee area. A pair of running shoes and a bike are about all Chris needs in life besides that!
Commonwealth is a company having dignity and purpose, with a team collectively focused on providing a great product and enhancing the communities we serve.

Commonwealth has been extremely professional and courteous to the staff and the residents still living in our facility. They exceeded our expectations during the construction project as well as during the renovation of a 1923 school. Both projects have turned out to be beautiful and successful for our community.
