Wheelerton Baptist Church Continues to Grow

on Apr 16, 2019 7:11:00 PM By | J.J. Brindley | 0 Comments | Church Construction
Wheelerton Baptist Church, located in Dellrose, Tennessee was first established in 1944. By historical standards, Wheelerton Baptist is a recent addition to the membership of Giles County’s religious institutions. Following their first organizational meeting, 14 member families immediately set about making plans to build a church building to house Wheelerton Baptist’s congregation. A building site was donated by Mrs. Vera Soloman, who owned land in the community, and funds and furniture started coming in to the building committee in the amount of $415.68. The committee was able to locate a building belonging to a disbanded church and purchased it for $150. Church members, friends, family and other volunteers dismantled the structure, working to relocate the building to its new home. From some of the lumber, log benches were fashioned as seating for the church.

Why We Never Stop Sharing, Learning and Building

on Mar 20, 2019 7:25:00 PM By | Jeff Brindley, Vice President | 0 Comments | Continued Education leadership
Four years ago, the Construction Leadership Network (CLN) was formed on the principles of bringing together top construction leaders and their key personnel to exchange ideas and share best practices to improve the industry, themselves and their organizations. Our company is an inaugural member of CLN, which is an offshoot of the former Jack Miller Network. Over the years, we have developed a lot of friends and mentors within these two groups—people who have “been there, done that” and who are eager to share their successes, challenges and failures with other like-minded construction entrepreneurs. We become better contractors by learning from others and our peers become better contractors by learning from us. We all have something to bring to the table.

Interior Renovations at The Rutherford Senior Living Community

on Mar 7, 2019 2:07:07 PM By | J.J. Brindley | 0 Comments | Renovation Assisted Living
Brindley Construction is very familiar with healthcare projects—we’ve constructed many assisted living and memory care facilities over the last 20 years. Our recent renovation at The Rutherford, an Inspirit senior living community in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, was unlike any other. The Rutherford underwent much-needed renovations to both the property’s three-story assisted living facility and two-story memory care building. Throughout the project, our team worked closely with Inspirit Regional Director of Asset Management Scott Burkholder, PMP. When selecting a construction company for this project, Scott was seeking various qualities. “It is very important to me to pick a contractor partner for our projects that has experience in the assisted living and memory care space, and Brindley has what I was looking for,” says Scott. “Brindley also has a great staff that strives to produce a quality product with attention to detail.”

College Not Required for Great Construction Careers

on Feb 9, 2019 3:03:00 AM By | Brindley Construction | 0 Comments | Brindley Team
It comes as no shock to the average person that a ripple effect of recent technological advances and the growth of the Internet economy has been a tectonic shift in the labor force. The number of jobs that require sitting behind a desk in a cubicle – or anywhere a computer might be – has risen dramatically over the past 20 years. This shift has transformed our educational system into one that funnels students towards a different set of opportunities. While some of those opportunities offer new and exciting prospects for our economy, the trend has accelerated at the cost of marginalizing vocational and skills-based training – especially in the construction trades. You Can’t Get Everything on Amazon In truth, you can’t buy everything on Amazon. Fundamental aspects of our lives have not changed. We still need homes to live in, new schools and commercial buildings, state-of-the-art hospitals, and improved roads and bridges. Right now, we especially need trained people who know how to construct and renovate these critically important assets in our built environment. What has changed in recent years? Basically, our view of education and job prospects – which pushes the idea that every graduating high schooler should enter a four-year college program. Unfortunately, too many students leave the university to find themselves forced to work in low-wage jobs and burdened with excessive college loan debt.

What One Factor Influences Construction Costs the Most?

on Nov 13, 2018 9:55:00 AM By | Kathy Pigg | 0 Comments | Design-Build
There are many factors that influence the cost of construction. Some are obvious: land acquisition, permits and construction costs. Then there are the future costs or life-cycle costs to consider: maintenance, repair, replacement—the cost of keeping the facility and its systems up and running. One of the most effective ways to control construction costs is to establish early involvement on behalf of the owner AND the contractor. This may seem obvious, but under the traditional method of construction delivery, the owner commissions an architect or engineer to prepare drawings and specifications, then separately selects a contractor by negotiation or competitive bidding at a later stage in the project’s development. This can present a number of problems for the owner Can the design be built for the budget and within the desired timeframe? If the project needs to go back to the drawing board, how much time will be lost? What if the architect and contractor disagree? How many contracts need to be managed by the owner?

on Oct 30, 2018 10:58:00 AM By | Brindley Construction | 0 Comments | Manufacturing Industrial Construction
When Huntsville, Alabama won the hotly contested competition for a new $1.6 billion Toyota-Mazda plant on January 10, 2018, the Columbia Daily Herald reported “the euphoria in 'The Heart of Dixie' was almost as intense as the University of Alabama’s latest national football championship.” The new joint facility, expected to start production in 2021, will employ 4,000 workers. Toyota will assemble new Corollas and Mazda will produce crossover vehicles at the plant, which will be designed to handle the manufacture of more than 300,000 cars per year. That was good news for Tennessee, too, where Brindley Construction, LLC, serves Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 suppliers to the automotive industry.

4 Signs You’ve Chosen the Wrong Contractor–And How to Find a Good One

on Aug 23, 2018 10:46:57 AM By | Brindley Construction | 0 Comments | Design-Build Choosing a Contractor
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. So, how do you choose the right contractor—one who can understand your company’s needs, can work within your budget, meet your deadlines, work as a team player and provide solutions and innovations along the way? Avoid these common traits of bad contractors: Lack of Communication and Reachability If a contractor doesn’t return your initial phone calls or emails, keep looking. You want a reputable company that stays in constant communication throughout all aspects of your project. The best contractors will be open and always striving to keep their clients informed. Typically, you will have an individual or a team assigned to your project that will manage it from start to finish. If a company is not quick to provide you with information about your construction project, search for a more reliable company.
