An insight into one of our highly proficient Project Managers
We introduce one of our construction management team’s expert Project Managers – Andy Burroughs!
He has been a part of the Greenspan Project Management team for over 3 years now and works closely with our in-house design team to help bring their concepts from screen/paper to actual tangible completed attractions. The other main aspect of his role is overseeing the construction phase of the project. He is usually on-site liaising with the construction team ensuring that everything comes together successfully. He has predominantly worked on Adventure Playpark projects whilst at Greenspan and takes great satisfaction in providing imaginative play spaces for children and young people to enjoy.
Every project Andy has worked upon, his clients always sing his praises, which include how attentive he is to their requirements and how he goes the extra mile for them throughout the project’s lifespan.
Andy has many years of experience in refurbishing commercial premises, much of his past work involves comprehensive projects for retail spaces and restaurants. He is now responsible for managing large prestigious Greenspan projects from point of order through to handover.
We asked Andy what his favourite Greenspan project to work on was, and he immediately and enthusiastically answered: “Bright Horizons – West Hill Nursery in Didcot“.
Why was West Hill Nursery your favourite project?
“It was a baptism of fire, as I was asked to manage a project with an existing client and try to create a working relationship with this client. At the time this made me learn about Greenspan and their drive to complete projects above expectations. This relationship with the client has developed and they wish to work on further projects with in the future.”
What is your background in project management and construction?
“I was working for a company that carried out refurbishments of Burger Kings nationwide and also small restaurants and bars – previous to that and where I learnt about Project management – this was at a company that carried out refurbishments of French Connection and Nicole Farhi clothing stores nationwide, also I have worked in several large London department store refurbing small concessions.”
What do you enjoy the most out of the Project Manager work that you do?
“The end product and handing over to the client exactly what they wanted and realising their dream. I also take great satisfaction from the journey through the project with the client.”
