Geocon people: Construction Manager Andrew Clark
15 May 2018
When did you join Geocon?
I started with Geocon in April 2009, after I finished my Bachelor of Applied Science in Architecture at the University of Canberra. I’d just finished working in a contract role on a refurbishment project and was ready for a new challenge.
What was your role and what does it involve?
I joined as a project engineer and I am now the construction manager. I’m responsible for the daily operations of the construction team with a specific focus on design, pre-commencement project delivery, cost-control, quality and systems compliance across all of the company’s projects.
How much has changed since you began working for Geocon?
Practically everything. The only thing that hasn’t changed over the past nine years is our managing director Nick Georgalis’ ambition, dedication and drive. In 2009, we had just four employees and we were building houses in the suburbs and sub-contracting out every aspect of each job. Now we have a hotels division, a legal and communications department, in-house design team, a website and more.
The best thing you’ve learned in your role here:
The importance of teamwork and establishing good working relationships with people.
What are your career aspirations?
My career aspiration is to inspire, influence and educate people around me.
What do you like to do outside work?
Spending time with the family, my friends, and fly fishing.
Would you recommend Geocon to others looking for a good career path?
