Chris Arjona


For more than 15 years, Chris Arjona has been a key leader and team member on the structural design of a wide range of project types – including high-rise, residential, office, hotel, education, and renovation. His early work as a design engineer included large international projects such as the 88-story Burj Mohammed Bin Rashid Tower, Abu Dhabi, where he honed his analytical and design expertise. As a project manager, Chris has gone on to lead the design of other large-scale commercial projects in Chicago and across the country including 727 W Madison, winner of SEAOI’s Excellence in Engineering Award. Chris has a long track record with developers, architects, and contractors for his pragmatic approach to structural design and detailing from the initial concepts all the way through to implementation in the field.
