Chris Ames

“Through architecture, we can make small decisions upfront that can improve someone's enjoyment of a space for decades.“

Chris’s experience in both our Community and Commercial Studio includes all aspects of project design: including concept design and design development, schematic design, budget management, construction document supervision, specifications, consultant coordination and construction administration. He specializes in the design of libraries as community centers, and has also led the team on several of our healthcare and financial projects.

In the office, he's one of our Revit and Lumion gurus, and will always have an interesting historical tidbit or book to share.

Outside of the office, you’ll find Chris walking through his neighborhood in Norfolk, painting or schooling somebody in trivia.
