Civil Engineering Technician
Hi, I’m Chris. I graduated from the University of Portsmouth in 2014 and have gained a varied range of experience in civil engineering (primarily in water supply, highways and drainage infrastructure) working in both the UK and on Saint Helena Island -a British overseas territory in the South Atlantic.
I grew up on Saint Helena, its such a unique place to live and provides a tranquil way of life. I was involved mainly with various island wide water security projects, with the focus on developing infrastructure to meet the projected future demand from increased tourism, after the construction of the islands first airport in 2017. Engineering projects on a small island comes with other challenges such as logistics and lack of resources, which can make projects very interesting.
I returned to the UK in early 2021 and joined Civic Engineers in May 2021 as a Civil Engineering Technician. I was intrigued by the company culture and focus on sustainability.
In my spare time I enjoy keeping active – playing tennis, cricket, and ‘attempting’ to play golf, live music and travel.
