Meet Chris Giattina
The chief strategist for BLOX, Chris Gianttina believes that everything can be made better, and his job is to figure out how. With 25 years of experience in the AEC industry, as an architect, a developer, a builder and a teacher, Chris brings both broad insight and tested business acumen to solving the problem of how to make better buildings faster. Chris began a study of manufacturing processes while designing training facilities for Honda and Kia and found that this methodology could dramatically improve productivity in the design and construction industries. At BLOX, Chris has built an incredible team of passionate cross-trained people who are improving the way things get built, one component at time.
What is BLOX?
BLOX makes medical modules, such as patient rooms, exam rooms and trauma rooms, and uses them to build hospitals and other healthcare facilities more quickly and efficiently.
BLOX exists to make better buildings faster. They are made up of smart architects, engineers, manufacturers, programmers and other generalists, united by the notion that to make great things intelligently is a worthy pursuit.
The company has grown rapidly, with projects across the U.S. and skyrocketing sales. Its local manufacturing site, the former Pullman Standard railcar plant in Bessemer, now hums with the assembly of modern medical technology.
