Opsis is excited to welcome Conor Wood to our team and announce the promotions of Chris Roberts to Opsis Principal and Erica Dunn to Associate Principal!

Chris Roberts, AIA, was promoted to Opsis Principal. With 19 years of experience at Opsis and more than 27 years in the architectural profession, Chris brings a depth of expertise in architectural design and project management to all the sports, recreation and higher education projects he is a part of. His architectural philosophy of innovative pragmatism draws inspiration from the unique sense of place inherent in every campus and community.  His skills and expertise have been honed from work on projects ranging in size and complexity from the award winning, long span mass timber Idaho Central Credit Union Arena at the University of Idaho to performing arts centers, libraries, and recreation centers throughout the Pacific Northwest. Chris’s thoughtful integration of timber products within sports and recreation venues places him at the forefront of innovation in the practice, application and design possibilities of sustainable materials in the built environment. Chris is passionate about a process of discovery that benefits all people and communities by integrating program and client needs through a sustainable and innovative design approach.
