After lots of searching for the perfect project manager, Vision Design welcomes Robbie Griffin to our team. He was born and raised in North Carolina right here in the Catawba Valley. As a teenager Robbie was able to work with his uncle in the summer months while school was out to apprentice in the construction industry. His uncle was a local framing contractor and was able to mentor Robbie. Robbie says, “I was amazed at how the local lumberyard would drop off a pile of wood and in a few weeks there would be a new home standing there.” He still loves to watch projects unfold and make someone’s dreams a reality.
Early in his career working for other carpenters Robbie realized he wanted to build his own company. He launched Griffin Brothers Construction, a framing contractor that specialized in new home construction, but also completed lots of remodeling projects. He worked for many of the area’s general contractors to help build their homes and complete their projects. During the recent recession, Robbie worked with a local company as a job site superintendent/project manager that mainly did remodeling work. He brings great experienced skills to the Vision Design Build Remodel team. He recalls a complicated renovation completed in the past. It was a second story addition where the roof was removed and another story added. It was a long project—around 10 months—and took lots of help from other tradesman. He used his vast knowledge of building systems to complete the project that was a major undertaking!
Working with Vision Design Build Remodel as Project Manager
Robbie has worked with Vision Design for under a year now, but it feels like he has been part of the team since day one. As a project manager with Vision Design, his duties include keeping the current projects on budget and schedule. He works hand in hand with the carpentry team and other trade contractors. He purchases material and schedules inspections. Robbie says he likes a smooth running job where everyone can have their time to perform excellent work and not be rushed. This comes with proper planning before and during the project. He utilizes the Vision Design Project Development Phase.
Robbie states that he decided to come to work with Vision after feeling under appreciated at his previous company. He said, “Vision Design feels like I am finally home.” He loves the forward thinking ideas that Vision has put in place to stay on the front edge of the industry. He loves being part of the “A-team” that helps makes company decisions. Robbie says about himself and the company, “We strive to be the best at what we do”.
Outside of work, 45 year old Robbie enjoys spending quality time with his wife of 20 years. They are empty-nesters who enjoy watching their three outstanding children build their own lives. They have three grandkids to enjoy as well! Robbie unwinds daily after work with a workout in his home gym. He enjoys riding ATVs, when he can find free time. And we don’t want to forget his pets Storm and Shinobi!
