Site Manager

Jan Thorsen

Carpenter / Builder

Jan Thorsen has been site manager for over 10 years at Gowdie Management Group delivering more than $13 million in residential and commercial construction projects in that time.

Since joining the company Jan has been integral to the successful completion of a wide range of construction projects, including full construction, extensions and refurbishments across Brisbane and South-east Queensland.

Jan takes a hands-on approach to all projects and is a key asset in bringing in new work, preparing competitive tenders, effectively managing subcontractors and ensuring adequate health and safety standards are met. He is willing to assist and has a proven track record of maintaining professional relations with respective architects, project managers, subcontractors, suppliers and clients.

Jan has assisted our project managers with building works on several high-end residential apartment, retail and commercial fit-out projects. Most notably, he provided on-site management for the entire Brisbane Immigration Transit Authority Centre project for the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, which included the construction of new facilities and refurbishment of existing structures. The initial works were completed to such a high standard that we have continued to receive work at the facility as it is further expanded and improved.

Jan is motivated and hardworking and maintains a whole-of-project approach to the design and delivery of projects across a variety of sectors. His attention to detail is greatly valued by our public and private clients.
