Chris Farney, PE
As a municipal streets group engineer, Chris works closely with our clients to understand their needs and expectations. Then, he translates those must-haves into quality, constructible designs. Whether he’s performing complex site observations or delivering extensive reviews, his sense of humor and ability to multi-task make him an asset to our team.
If you see me outside of work, I’m probably wearing shorts. Shorts are just the best.
What did you want to be growing up?
I guess this means admitting that I have finally grown up. I always wanted to be an archeologist. The idea of exploring and finding out about new cultures has always appealed to me.
What is your favorite way to move communities forward?
I really enjoy seeing how our designs in the office get translated from paper to the real world. When you look at the before and after pictures for the neighborhoods that we work on, you can really see how improving the infrastructure can revitalize a neighborhood.
Tell us something we don’t know.
I drove a white 1982 Chevy Camaro in high school. It looked awesome; It had t-tops, a spoiler, and red racing stripes. It was also a piece of junk; it had no A/C, leaked when it rained, the body was pieced together from different model years, and the windshield wipers would occasionally stop working in the middle of a rainstorm. It was pretty much the perfect high school car.
