Lincoln Property Company (Lincoln) has hired Chris Wakefield as a construction manager in its Atlanta office. Wakefield comes to Lincoln from nationally recognized Brasfield & Gorrie General Contractors, where he spent eight years as a project manager and estimator working a wide range of commercial construction projects. With Lincoln, Wakefield will oversee the firm’s new development and construction for third-party and Lincoln owned assets.
At Brasfield & Gorrie, Wakefield’s fieldwork included a diverse mix of projects including interior and base building construction spanning from large-scale recreational centers, interior renovations for an Atlanta based mega-church, a build-out for a Ritz-Carlton Residences and preconstruction work on the new Braves SunTrust Stadium, now under construction.
“Chris impressed us with his experience handling high-level work at Brasfield & Gorrie,” said Tony Bartlett, senior vice president of Lincoln who oversees the firm’s Atlanta office. “His wide-ranging experience and attention to detail will be invaluable to us and will help us maintain the high level of service we deliver to our clients and partners.”
Wakefield received a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Auburn University’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering.
