Why Now Is Still A Good Time To Build & Tips To Get The Most Out of Your Project

on Jun 24, 2021 4:00:00 PM By | Lauren Reed | 0 Comments | construction process
The pandemic did not only cause a shortage and price increases on toilet paper and cleaning supplies—it is impacting the cost of construction materials as well. The demand for large-scale construction, coupled with the issues in the supply chain created by the pandemic, is rippling through the entire construction market, driving prices up and creating material shortages and delays in delivery. For example, steel bar joists now have a 10-month lead time. We are also seeing significant increases in copper, PVC, vinyl products, drywall, and metal studs. Lumber costs, which have been dominating the news, have risen 57% since January and by nearly 375% since last year, according to Market Insider.

10 Steps to Satisfaction & Success On Your Next Construction Project

on May 25, 2021 7:15:00 PM By | J.J. Brindley | 0 Comments | construction process
Starting a construction project can seem daunting. Between gathering your team, identifying your needs, selecting a site and obtaining the financing, you create a mountain of work that seems impossible to overcome. And, then there are the unknowns—the things you haven't even considered. At Brindley Construction, we value education and we know that information is power. We want to educate our customers on the construction process in advance so that they feel like part of the team and they feel confident knowing they have us—the general contractor—holding their hand throughout the entire project. Whether you are interested in utilizing the design-build delivery method—where the general contractor manages the design team as well as the construction team under a single contract—or you plan to use the traditional method where you already have an architect and a set of plans and need guidance building the project, Brindley is here to help.

How Does Brindley Stay Safe on the Job?

on May 11, 2021 7:15:00 PM By | Lauren Reed | 0 Comments | Brindley Team safety frito-lay
Ask any construction business owner, regardless of the size of their firm, what their top priority is and you will probably get the same response every time—worker safety. The real question owners should be asking their general contractors is whether their safety program is vigorous enough to meet their commitment to protecting their workers. Four of the leading causes of construction worker fatalities are falls, electrocutions, being struck by objects, and being caught in or between objects. OSHA has dubbed these the “Fatal Four” and that typically accounts for over half of all construction worker deaths each year. Construction is one of the most dangerous industries to work in, which is why programs and initiatives like Construction Safety Week (May 3 - 7, 2021) are so important to raising awareness about the importance of construction safety. Our commitment to staying safe and focusing on the job is a point of pride and strength that runs across our entire company. This is why—as individuals and a team—we must be alert, observant and always looking out for each other’s back.

When you embark on a new construction, addition or renovation project, there is a lot at stake—budget, schedule, productivity, and a host of other concerns. When looking for a contractor, you may come across many options. This sometimes can seem like an undaunting task - Let us walk you through the top 5 warning signs you should be looking for, if you are to avoid selecting the wrong contractor.  Lack of Communication and Reachability If a contractor doesn’t return your initial phone calls or emails, keep looking.
