Chris Giattina



Chris is an architect and manufacturer who thinks everything can be better. Designing training facilities for Honda and Kia introduced him to manufacturing methods that he thought could improve the declining productivity of traditional design and construction. Chris and his team developed an open source-project delivery process called Design Manufacture Construct – design that uses manufacturing productivity to simplify construction. Unable to find a manufacturer interested in their work, he started BLOX as a ground-up manufacturing company organized around the principals of DMC. Today BLOX works with large healthcare systems across the country designing, manufacturing and constructing complex buildings. Chris has degrees from Georgia Tech and University of Pennsylvania and is CEO of BLOX and GA Studio.
