Meet Andrew Melvill, our Senior Project Manager and Planner.
The role of a construction project planner is to oversee all the planning and delivery of a building development. They ensure that the project stays within the specified time-frame and budget. It is their duty to organise logistics, delegate work to the various teams and keep track of spending.
Andrew does all this and more. His job requires him to see the project through from the idea stages to the final product. His main role at the park is to look after the outside infrastructure and design plan of the Conradie Park apartment blocks. A day in his work life consists of making sure that all ongoing construction is progressing according to schedule. His role is extremely important as he ensures that Conradie Park keeps its promise of creating quality, affordable housing within the specified time frames.
Andrew has been a part of the Conradie Park project since the early stages of the development. He says it was special for him to be a part of the team that conceptualised the design, and turned a blank piece of land into the rendered model that is currently being built. The most special part about working on this project was creating spaces within the park that will allow its future residents to feel comfortable, safe, happy and inspired.
