Chris Meier, LEED AP Project Executive
A 20+ year industry veteran, Chris joined Riley in 2008 as a Project Manager. He holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Minnesota. As well as being a LEED-Accredited Professional, Chris is certified in healthcare construction and infection control through WHEA (Wisconsin Healthcare Engineering Association).
Since childhood, Chris had a curiosity for how things worked or were built, so engineering and construction was an immediate draw. “The construction industry plays the humble role of rendering all other services possible, whether it be by building the new neighborhood hospital, advanced laboratory, improved school or more efficient manufacturing facility,” said Chris. “The tangible imprint left on the communities we’re fortunate to serve – and the opportunities and services that we make possible through our understanding of the built environment – is what makes construction rewarding.”
Chris was born and raised in Racine, WI, where he resides today with his wife Karin and his two children, Jackson and Emmaleigh. He and his family enjoy exploring the vast natural resources in southeastern Wisconsin, and their free time is often spent in the woods or near the water. Chris stays active by coaching his kids’ athletics and finding his way onto a court, field, or race event “as long as my body will allow!”
Fun Fact? I keep a small memento from every construction project that I’ve participated in – something that tells a story (good or bad!), reminds me of a lesson learned, or captures the energy and experience of working with the team on that project.
