Chris Renshaw's Biography

Chris Renshaw is a 5th year Architectural Engineering student at Penn State University.  He has chosen to focus his efforts in the Construction Management option of AE and has been a placement officer for Student chapter of Partnership for Achieving Construction Excellence (S:PACE) since the fall of 2007.  Chris plans to graduate from Penn State in May of 2009 with a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering (BAE). 

In the summer of 2006, Chris interned for Stampfl Hartke Architects near Doylestown, Pa.  His primary duties were CAD drafting but he learned many aspects of residential and small commercial design and constructability as well.  The following summer Chris interned for Holder Construction on a large data center in Ashburn, Va. In Ashburn he assisted with field coordination and learned how to maintain a productive project while working under a superintendent.  The opportunity to oversee construction first hand in the fast paced data center was exceptionally valuable. 

The summer of 2008 found Chris doing more of the same with another internship for Holder in Ashburn.  During this summer, he was able to build on the knowledge that he gained from the previous summer and help more with trade interaction and planning.  He was also given the responsibility of generating a contractor punch list and ensuring that each subcontractor completed their items on this list as well as the architect punch list.  After graduation Chris hopes to continue working for a construction company on the path to become a superintendent.
