Chris joined Colantonio in 2012 with 11 years of estimating and project management experience with previous employers EMJ Corporation, Pulte Homes and Mullaney Corporation.  He has since been instrumental in the firm’s success in winning public contracts and in its expansion into the private mixed income/senior housing market. Chris helps develop and execute the firm’s strategic plans, and manages the Preconstruction and Estimating Team.

Chris believes that careful planning, detailed thinking, and a properly executed preconstruction process will make any project successful.  “We are careful to control Colantonio’s growth to keep our volume at a manageable level,” he says. “This allows our Preconstruction Team to dedicate the time necessary to deliver the highest quality of estimating, planning, and scheduling services to each of our clients.”

Chris and his wife have four daughters.  “What is ‘spare time’?”, he wants to know.
