Chris Chennell Director, Fire Safety Division

Joining our Fire Safety division in summer 2021, Chris is focused on building Hydrock’s presence in the north east of the UK, from his base in Newcastle.

Along with strengthening our existing national Fire Safety division’s output by building a Newcastle-focused team of engineers that will deliver our services swiftly to local clients and projects, Chris will also be focused on developing new and existing relationships in the region.

Chris is developing the Golden Thread service offering for the practice, as well as supporting the delivery of Façade Remediation work nationally. Chris will also be supporting the delivery of international projects alongside key collaborators.

Having started his career in the Royal Air Force Fire Service, Chris completed a degree in Fire Engineering before working for a number of consultancies. Returning to the UK having lived and worked in Madrid, Melbourne and Dubai, he brings his extensive sector experience in the infrastructure, rail, cultural, and façade rectification projects to Hydrock.

Whilst in Melbourne Chris chaired a committee, on behalf of Engineers Australia, to draft a practice guide on Façade Fire Safety Design.
