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

Boom Battle Bar, Oxford Street, London

Boom Battle Bar’s flagship location at London’s Oxford Street is now live…

Greenspan Projects were delighted to bring innovative, immersive challenges to life again for Boom Battle Bar’s newest instalment on London’s Oxford Street. Nestled between popular eateries and retail outlets, this prime location was deemed perfect for the newest addition to the Boom family – and one of the busiest shopping and leisure destinations in Europe!

Visitors of this vivacious venue can find competitive games in abundance, including axe throwing, “crazier” golf, augmented reality darts and shuffleboard. The site hosts both the Boom and Escape Hunt formats over approximately 15,000 square feet and represents the Group’s flagship site given its format, size, and location.

Alongside its array of aforementioned activities, visitors can also enjoy beer or prosecco pong, karaoke, American pool, and large screens showing selected live sports events. These complement six highly immersive and exciting escape games, which come from the Group’s unique catalogue of successful, premium escape challenges.

Lit by striking neon lights in a spacious underground industrial setting, Greenspan have brought the pinnacle game to life at centre stage with innovative golf games such as Loop de Loop, Sk8r Kid, Rat Race, On yer Bike and Bullseye – and a Factory Finish with a twist!

This has been the biggest Boom Battle Bar project to date for Greenspan, and it’s certainly a testament to the Boom brand that they have worked their way up to such a prime location – which is now the 26th Boom Battle Bar venue in the UK. Greenspan have also worked with Boom Battle Bar on their Edinburgh, Birmingham, Bournemouth and Leeds locations.
