Chris Harding
Managing Director
Chris is Managing Director of the business and manages a strong team of fellow Directors, Engineers and Technicians, across all disciplines. Chris is equally comfortable assessing both complex building structures or challenging civil engineering infrastructure projects. He also personally directs the business through some of the more specialist services it provides, such as, traffic assessments, flood risk assessments, geo-environmental investigations or expert witness and auditing commissions.

Chris has extensive experience in the design and site monitoring of all types of construction work across a wide range of sectors. Chris dedicates much of his time to the development of strategic land, site appraisals and the assessment of abnormal development constraints to ensure that all bespoke project challenges are fully understood from the outset. Chris’s message to the JPG team is the taking of personal ownership at all levels across all project challenges from inception through to successful completion.
