Our Team

Committed to Excellence

We are solutions-driven and detail-oriented, communicative and generous with our clients and each other, and at the top of our game as skilled craftsmen, builders, and project managers. Over the years, we’ve grown bigger and more ambitious, but at heart we’re as focused on quality—in our work and relationships—as ever before. In fact, many of our earliest team members are still with us today, partnerships that go back more than a decade and speak to our common sense of purpose.

Chris Strong


“We bring craft thinking and technical excellence to every project.” 

Chris has over two decades of comprehensive experience in the construction industry. He holds a Master of Science degree from the University of Toronto, which has significantly contributed to developing his collaborative, strategic planning approach and appreciation for the technical side of construction. Chris’s ability to see the big picture and his strong leadership skills have enabled him to become a well-known and respected contractor in Victoria. Chris oversees all operations at Strong.

Abbey Freedman

Operations Manager

“We’re all about the details that bring the big picture into focus.”

As the operations manager, Abbey takes care of the behind-the-scenes operations that make the on-site work look seamless. She brings a unique blend of real-world experience and professional education to our team. During your project, expect her to communicate job expectations, implement, enforce, and evaluate policies and procedures to ensure a safe site, and serve as the primary point of contact if there are issues. With Abbey, there’s no guesswork, so our clients know that when we’re done, we’ve done the job right.

Nat Noel

Project Manager

“I love an open, honest approach.”

Nat spent a decade “on the tools”—as a carpenter, lead hand, and site foreman—before concentrating his expertise in project management. He’s a familiar face on Strong job sites, where he oversees the details and the needs of partners and trades teams. It’s his walk-in-your-shoes approach that consultants and subcontractors appreciate. Clients respect Nat’s straightforward guidance and his drive to create beautiful spaces. We wouldn’t trade him for anything.
