GO DEES // After 57 years of pain, our Director Nick ‘the culture vulture’ Spargo is celebrating his beloved Demons winning the AFL Premiership! Nick joined Visioneer in 2016 as a Project Manager from a Tier 1 commercial builder. He became a director in 2018 and now oversees our operations and financial divisions.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q&A with Nick:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nickname (and why): Spargs. I don’t think it requires a detailed explanation!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why did you choose Visioneer? After working for 10 years in the commercial construction space I wanted to move away from the combative nature of that sector. The focus on quality and relationships within the high-end residential space was appealing and the opportunity to join the Visioneer family was a very simple call, and a decision I will never regret! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Best part of working at Visioneer: Without a doubt, working with the amazingly talented people within our business, closely followed by the opportunity and responsibility to deliver some unique and bespoke architectural designs. Every day is different which makes coming to work really enjoyable.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Worst part of working at Visioneer: Keeping up with my phone messages and emails is an ongoing, uphill battle. Bring back the fax machine and simple face-to-face communication!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I’m not at Visioneer, I am; Spending as much time as I can with Em (wife to be if Covid allows!), our daughter Pippa and Walter our slobbery clumsy brown Labrador. ⠀

Drink of choice: I cant go past our home grown Kent Farm Pinot Noir – it’s ‘a nice little drop from a nice little farm’!

Spirit animal: Green Tree Frog – we both tend to have very minimal upper body strength!

KIND WORDS // Thank you, David! We have loved working with the team at Project Insite over many years, however, 2020 and 2021 have been quite the journey. Let's hope next year doesn't throw so many curveballs!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q&A with Josh:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nickname (and why): Josh, can't say I'm called anything else.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why did you choose Visioneer?: I was looking for an apprenticeship straight out of school and was fortunate enough to be employed.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Best part of working at Visioneer: Handover, the excitement of completing a project is both exhilarating yet calming.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Worst part of working at Visioneer: The stress of dealing with situations that are out of your control.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I’m not at Visioneer, I am: Camping and enjoy the outdoors.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
