What Makes us Unique
After years spent working for a custom builder and at Dan Ryan Builders, where he built more than 300 homes, Chris Barnhizer knew his artistic vision could only be realized at an entrepreneurial homebuilding firm that was aggressive on growth. So, in 2016, he founded Richland Building Partners, which has become one of the fastest-growing builders in Nashville. Chris’ appreciation of aesthetics serves him well as chief executive officer; his unerring eye for detail makes notice of the minutiae that separate good buildings from great ones. Chris’ knowledge and expertise in construction is unparalleled, but what stands out most about him is his ability to solve the complex design, engineering and financing issues that can arise in his field. That’s especially important as Chris oversees all stages of a project, including land acquisition, construction operations, customer service, systems, design and strategic planning. Chris operates on core values of honesty and integrity, and he believes that attention to detail on the front end means you’ll only sweat once. The level of professionalism that he elicits from his team is phenomenal, and he is the glue that holds projects together – a unifying force mobilizing all team members to complete jobs on schedule and within budget. Chris also has an uncanny ability to create profitability through operational efficiencies as he transforms glass and steel into elegant, modern structures. And as he leads his team, Chris modernizes the architectural face of Nashville and enjoys the fruits of his labor. “For me, it’s not a job,” Chris says. “It’s a creative outlet. I love the connection with people and seeing our clients achieve the home of their dreams.”
