Andrew Strong | Project Manager
“One of the big problems we aim to solve for our customers is the permit stage of their build – the less they have to deal with council the better, as this stage can be challenging at times!”
New to the Mansfield team is Andrew who is responsible for keeping customers up to date with their shed build, scheduling deliveries, conducting site visits and organising contractors. With over a decade of experience in account management and operations within the construction industry, Andrew has a firm grasp on what needs to be done to deliver a quality shed outcome.
