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. 

Strength in Numbers

Our management team is supported by the skill and dedication of our team members on the ground. Our site supervisors, carpenters, and labourers ensure our projects meet the highest standards of quality workmanship.

Chris Strong

Principal

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

Founder Chris Strong oversees all Strong operations. His is a clear vision for a company whose strength resides in more than a name. Chris balances trust in his team with the finisher’s eye for detail—getting it right for clients and building something special along the way. Today the firm is recognized for design-forward work and a commitment to quality respected by peers. It’s a point of view Chris has been honing since his start in the industry alongside his dad at the age of 16—and a distinction he and his crew fine-tune with each project.

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.

Jeff Hardman

Project Manager

“We get better at what we do every day.”

Jeff is a talented Red Seal Carpenter turned project manager. His ability to create unique and functional spaces for our clients while putting their needs first makes him an asset beyond compare. Those on the job will tell you he values work ethic and frowns on shortcuts. It’s that high bar and push to do better that make him so valuable to our team.

Mike von Tiesenhausen

Project Manager

“Attention to detail leads to success.”

With a Masters of Architecture and many years of construction under his belt, Mike can take on projects of any size. His meticulous way of working through a project produces outstanding results. Welcome to the team Mike!

Abbey Freedman

Operations Manager

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

As our Project Coordinator, Abbey handles all things administrative. Armed with her Bachelor of Science from the University of Victoria, she decided to try something completely different and enter the construction industry. Driven by her love of learning, she challenges herself to improve every single day. When she’s not in the office, find her curled up with a hot coffee and a good book.

Amanda Campbell

Project Coordinator

“I love helping make great design happen.”

Amanda’s interest in design and construction began as a kid. Peeling wallpaper, patching drywall, and laying tiles with her father were considered time well spent. She developed a love for all things creative and years later would pursue Interior Design at the University of Alberta. Her path eventually led her to management, accounting, and ultimately, project coordination. Amanda’s strong passion for the aesthetic and her vibrant personality make her a great fit for our team.
