An Interview with Project Manager Chris Windsor
Our people make waltonwagner the company it is and it’s their expertise and enthusiasm that makes us stand out from the rest. Find out more about our team by reading their personal responses to our six quick-fire questions. Be warned, the answers may surprise you!
Question 1: What do you enjoy most about working in London?
London is such a diverse and multicultural city, with a real energy to it. I enjoy discovering something new and it’s a city that is always changing with markets, galleries, cinemas, restaurants galore – you are spoilt for choice if you live and work here.
Question 2: What is your favourite restaurant and why?
I’m a fan of the Singapore Garden Restaurant in Swiss Cottage. It has the best Malaysian food in London. It’s been a go-to restaurant for special occasions for me for years and never disappoints. If you get a chance to go, do try the Oyster Omelette, Malaysian Chicken Curry and the Fried Kway Teow.
Question 3: Tell us about your favourite buildings in the world.
The spectacular British Museum, which opened in 1759, is such a special place filled with wonderful things to look at and all for free! I love the light in the Great Court – the way the glass roof arches over the old Reading Room and the space around it is just stunning. What an inspired way to transform the Museum.
Question 4: Tell us one thing about working at waltonwagner that you enjoy?
Every day is different as the projects we all work on are so diverse. It means that we learn something new pretty much every day which keeps us on our toes, but also means it’s a very lively place to work.
Question 5: What is the most memorable moment of your life?
Being present at the birth of my son is up there as the most memorable.
Question 6: Tell us three things we may not know about you.
1. I love bodyboarding on the north Cornish coast, the bigger the waves the better.
2. In my past career as a photographer, I’ve hung out of helicopters shooting aerial shots of buildings.
3. I enjoy taking photographs with old school film pinhole cameras.
