Kris Davies - Superintendent Renovations
At an early age, I discovered through my father and uncle that the construction industry brought a variety of career opportunities. With the help of my father, Who owned a custom home building / Renovation company, I was able to complete a 4-year Carpentry apprenticeship program. After a few years of working in the field, I was promoted to General Foreman / Assistant Superintendent.
For the last 20 years, I have worked on dozens of projects, small and large. From building a new condo development on a golf course in Nelson B.C. to being a general foreman at the Mica and Waneta Dam expansion projects. From single and multi-family homes to some of the largest high rises in the lower mainland.
As an assistant superintendent and finishing superintendent, I have assisted project managers from project start to finish. Some of my additional responsibilities include contract requirements, milestones, purchase orders, subcontracts, change orders and procurements.
I am currently trying to obtain my Gold Seal Certification To become a Gold Seal Certified Superintendent.
