Employee Spotlight

 

 

Greg Green, General Superintendent

What is your background? 

I started as a Framing Carpenter at the age of 17 and continued into remodeling. From there, I became a Superintendent with a General Contractor performing high-end custom remodeling and renovating older homes as well as building new construction homes in the Memphis area.

How did you get into home building and why?

I entered into construction after helping friends and family with small projects over the years. I enjoyed working with my hands and having a tangible end result that pleased those I was helping or working for. I quickly developed an aptitude and love for crafting. I dove head first into learning and discovering new techniques and products and how best to apply them and haven’t looked back.

What is the best part of the job? Hardest?

I love seeing and hearing our clients, architects and designers wowed by the end result. Knowing that through the process, even with the ups or downs, our clients and team are thrilled with our end product makes it worth it. The biggest challenge is making sure all of the minutia are communicated and executed accurately. The hardest part of the job can be letting go of preciseness and exactness even if its within acceptable limits. 

Dream job if you weren’t in residential construction?

I would probably have a very large home workshop building odds and ends, specifically cabinets and furniture pieces.

Best way to spend a Saturday?

Spending time with the family watching a movie, playing Disc Golf, camping, hiking or even doing as little as possible for a while. Sometimes shutting down is the best recharge.

If you could only listen to 5 artists/bands for the rest of your life, who would they be?

In Flames, Gojira, Clutch, Corrosion of Conformity and Queensryche
