Miguel Gregory
Construction Manager
View Bio →

Nickname: Migs

 

About:

Miguel quite possibly goes for (in his own words) the most painful NRL team – the Wests Tigers.

His favourite holiday destination is Narooma, and he claims that nothing beats fishing for Kingfish straight off Montague Island or trolling the depths of the continental shelf for the elusive Black Marlin.

Miguel’s partner thinks he is stingy because he wouldn’t pay full price for a blue Amstaff, instead taking home one with a birth defect (his tail is seriously bent and twisted) at a 40 per cent discount. ‘Apache’ has turned out to be the best family dog, the kids love him and he doesn’t mind the odd fishing trip on the boat either.

 

Career:

Miguel brings over 10 years of experience to the team, delivering a variety of projects ranging from multi-level fitouts to large scale data centre construction and high-end commercial projects. Miguel is passionate about developing trusted relationships with both clients and subcontractors and understands the importance of being seen not heard.

Miguel’s planning and coordination skills ensure his projects remain on schedule and in-line with quality expectations, always remaining flexible and proactive in programming and risk management to ensure project delays are eliminated despite unforeseen challenges.

This invaluable and relevant experience is directly transferable to the project delivery for any project.
