Chris specialises in non-contentious construction work within the public and private sectors with particular focus on public sector development and construction projects, along with the procurement of large scale works programmes, including frameworks.

Chris has specialist experience in public sector facilities management contracts either by way of outsourcing through traditional models or through a variety of alternative delivery models such as joint ventures, “virtual” joint ventures using wholly owned subsidiary companies and cost sharing groups, each of which could be both tax efficient and mitigate against contractor insolvency.

He has worked on over 20 health, housing and waste PFI projects, where he advised both commissioning authorities, private sector consortia and funders on a range of issues including construction, commissioning and operation of the built facilities.
