Curating concept to reality – Project Manager Andy Burroughs

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?

Latest Project

Llwyngwair Manor Hotel & Holiday Park Adventure Golf Course

We enhanced Llwyngwair Manor Park with a stunning bespoke designed Adventure Golf Course to entertain visitors and guests.

Greenspan was selected to design and build a woodland themed adventure golf course for a holiday park and historical hotel complex nestled amongst the stunning Pembrokeshire countryside in southwest Wales. The course is made up of 18 themed holes, complimented with expertly crafted features such as woodland creatures, flora, and locally themed elements. As player make their way around the course they will hear local wildlife sound effects to further immerse them.

The Park owners wanted to boost their leisure attraction offering by rejuvenating a space right next to the main hotel building, where a dilapidated concrete tennis court sat.

Since opening, it is proving to have a massive impact on the popularity of the park, with increased bookings from both holiday seekers and outside passing visitors.

The Llwyngwair Manor Holiday Park is set in the 55 acres of rolling grassland and woodland of Llwyngwair Estate, right by the River Nevern near Newport. The site is in a scenic location that attracts holidaymakers from afar, who have the choice of either guesting within the main hotel, staying in one of their static caravans or they can book a plot to pitch up a tent.

Client testimony:
“We have been so impressed with Greenspan, throughout the whole process, from start to finish. They have been so professional and efficient with everything, it really has been excellent for our busy schedules managing the site. The ideas produced during the design phase were great and really represented the local area. Plus they were so accommodating throughout the project. We would definitely recommend Greenspan as a design and build partner to anyone.”
