Loose Connections - Kane, Building Manager at Glasshouse Gardens
In celebration of our loose connections and the wonderful benefits they bring to our lives, we’re interviewing some of the very important people that you might meet if you work, live or visit Stratford.
Kane is the Building Manager at Glasshouse Gardens, a selection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments that feature panoramic views of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (QEOP) and beyond.
I am the Building Manager for Glasshouse Gardens, working for Mainstay on behalf of Lendlease. I ensure that all Health and safety aspects, as well as compliance and general maintenance, are taken care of. I have a team of 6 concierges who work to a rota that involves a 24-hour service. We always aim to provide the best support and service to the residents and do so with a smile. I’m also responsible for keeping our residents informed about the many great events and news [updates] across IQL.
As somebody that has grown up in Newham, working in Stratford is special because I get to see how the area has developed over the years and how the area is a shining light of Olympic legacy.
Somebody who inspires me is my older brother.
And the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is having the opportunity to be of help to people.
