BORD

Architecture

My professional experience would make me a perfect asset to your company, and my passion for Architecture will continue to expand my understanding and abilities exponentially. I have a Bachelors of Architecture from Woodbury University in San Diego and 3 years of experience interning for local design firms.

I have experience in the design, construction, and project administration phases of Architecture. Working on a range of projects from conceptual housing to remodeling of a retirement community center has given me competence and confidence in my design skills.

Currently, I am enhancing my field and material knowledge through a weekly training class held by Masterworks Construction. Throughout my experience, I have worked closely with the designers and engineers, fine-tuning my skill sets - such as, putting together drawing sets, communicating with clients, handling unexpected situations ,and adapting to new environments quickly.

Please accept this letter and the attached pdf package as my intent to be considered for either of these positions. I look forward to discussing this opportunity. If you have any questions, I can be reached at (619) 665-8454 or by email at cbnca@hotmail.com.

Sincerely,

(619) 665-8454 or by email at cbnca@hotmail.com. Sincerely, Chris Bord Chris Bord 1170 Hornblend Street, San

Habitat Community

Inspired by the organization Habitat for Hummanity this project was meant to deal with affordable housing. The projects first concern was the site. To truly be affordable we could not set the site on a piece of premium land, so we chose an odd shaped left over piece of land in Oceanside, California. Using pre constructed modules and SIPS I designed a community that could be built for little cost to accomodatge low income families

Canopy & Bike Rack

This project was a combination of two semesters work. The original project was an artistic bike rack which was built from ten pieces of 10ft longsteel tubing. It is installed on Woodbury University’s Barrio Logan Campus. Students and faculty ride bicycles and before the bike rack there was no place to lock up the bikes, so peoplehad them laying around the interior of the school. The campus had an open space in the back of the school where the wood-shop was located. The problem was that this was the southern facade so it was always very hot and sunny. These conditions led to the perfect placement of both projects.

Vertical Farm

Using conventional methods to keep up with the needs of an ever expanding population would take up more land than we have to offer anddevastate the water resources that we are dependent on. Using a Vertical Farming (V.F.) method instead is a way to relive the stress on ourland and other natural resources. You can farm four vertical acres to every one acre of conventional methods. The city Chihuahua is a very horizontal city, and if they can get used to the idea of farming vertically then the jump to living vertically will follow naturally

Gatto Residence

This 4,200 sf. custom home was the most luxurious project I have ever worked on. Aside from the cantilevered hot tub at the end the pool which stretched the length of the property, this home featured only the best quality materials and newest technologies. Self adjusting Leutron blinds and heated concrete floors fed from a thermal well keep the interior at just the right temperature.
