Chris Childress

We asked Chris...

What is a problem in the Engineering & Construction Industry you'd like to fix?
With the technologies of today with BIM and 3D design capabilities, we are still using the archaic model of issuing sheet drawings to convey the design and construction documents. It is feasible now to design and issue a BIM model, such as Revit, for construction documents with all the information included in the model for installation, procurement, etc. This could incorporate all specifications, code requirements, automatic checks and balances, etc., for simple code analysis and permitting, as well as aid during construction for the contractors
What are you most passionate about personally? Professionally?
Personally, I am passionate about living life with my family; teaching and raising them in the Christian faith, exploring, going on adventures and travel. Also, my wife and I enjoy home improvement projects. Professionally, I enjoy solving problems and applying the engineering principals to aid our clients and get them the best solutions to fit within budgets.
What is the accomplishment of which you're most proud?
Having a tight-knit, loving family
What are you happiest doing when you're not working?
Working on home improvement project or working on our vintage trailer and traveling with my family.
If I weren't so good at my job, I'd probably be...
Flipping houses or flipping trailers
If you really know me, you'd know...
I strive to be a good example of Jesus Christ every day and I care deeply about my family, friends and colleagues.
