Christopher Barnett

Senior Infrastructure Surveyor

Chris has been with Alexander Symonds since 2005 and works within our construction team. Chris carries out civil engineering setout for many clients on large subdivisions throughout the Adelaide area. Chris also carries out road reconstruction work for various councils as well as DPTI. As he is involved in the project from quoting to completion, Chris feels that this gives him good client focus as he is in constant contact with clients, developers and engineers throughout each project.

Chris enjoys working with Alexander Symonds as he feels there is an excellent support network, as well as a great knowledge base from other staff in multiple disciplines of surveying so support is always available.

All staff get along which ensures a great culture, especially for those of us who are not often in the office. When not working, Chris enjoys going camping, hiking and getting outdoors with his family.

Chris was born in Scotland and moved to Australia in 2005 with his family. Chris was hired by Alexander Symonds before they moved over, so he feels that helped him settle in. Chris follows many sports teams, namely soccer teams Glasgow Rangers and Scotland, as well as any team playing Glasgow Celtic and England.
