Framework Director

Chris Arno

Chris joined us as a Senior Quantity Surveyor in 1999, graduating to Commercial Manager on some of our larger more challenging projects before moving to lead Pre-construction and Design Management within one of our regional businesses. This role saw Chris lead bid and design delivery for schemes in the commercial, education, industrial and media sectors including Warner Brothers Film Studios & Harry Potter Attraction, Leavesden and the redevelopment of the Grade II listed Newton and Arkwright buildings for Nottingham Trent University. Appointed an Associate Director in 2010, Chris led our successful bid in 2013 for a place on the Department for Education’s Contractor Framework, building a team which has subsequently delivered over 100 schools both traditionally and using Modern Methods of Construction. Chris now has a role overseeing Public Sector Frameworks for the Group.

As well as being Framework Director, he was appointed to the Bowmer + Kirkland Group Main Board in September 2022.

Away from work, Chris enjoys spending time with his family including four children and two dogs, cycling, walking, and watching the highs and lows of his beloved Sheffield United.
