Christopher Chivetta,

President | Principal In Charge

As President of Hastings+Chivetta, Chris has built on the solid foundation started by his father in 1960. His Saturday ritual as a child was walking job sites with his dad and drawing on old plans in the office. Chris has taken the firm in new directions; leading the development of our expertise in science and engineering projects including work for GE/University of Dayton and Centre College.

Chris is a people person and values the long-term relationships he builds with his clients. His favorite part of architecture and engineering is working with people to see their dreams turn into reality.
