When Huntsville, Alabama won the hotly contested competition for a new $2.311 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, with trial production currently underway, will employ 4,000 workers by mid-2022 when full production is expected to begin. 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.

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

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

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.
