Q&A With Lauren Reed, Brindley Construction’s New Marketing Director

on Oct 14, 2020 9:30:44 AM By | Ronnie Brindley | 6 Comments | Brindley Team
We sat down recently with Brindley Construction's new Marketing Director, Lauren Reed, and asked her to tell us about her experience during the first couple of weeks in her new role. Can you tell us a little bit about your education and prior work experience? I am an alumni from Martin Methodist College where I received a B.A in Business Administration and was part of the Student Activities Organization. I started out my career as a Purchasing Intern for Magneti Marelli where I worked my way up to Commodity Buyer and had the opportunity to work with Brindley and other local businesses here in Pulaski. In 2019 I worked for Pulte Homes in Franklin as a Procurement Agent, where I worked with the contractors and the construction crew in the field. The hustle and bustle of the construction industry keeps me on my feet and is an exciting industry to work in!

on Sep 1, 2020 1:26:00 PM By | Ronnie Brindley | 2 Comments | Brindley Team
This year’s plans were big. Really big. For starters, Brindley Construction is celebrating our 60th Anniversary of delivering commercial construction projects to customers throughout the Southeast. We had planned a big party and some local activities in the community to help celebrate our six decades of service. We also completed a project for Clayton Cavalier Homes in Addison, Alabama that won regional awards in both Tennessee and North Alabama and was ultimately recognized at the national level with the coveted Associated Builders and Contractors Eagle Award for Excellence in Construction. We had also planned our annual company outings and activities, something we really enjoy doing with our talented and dedicated team of employees. And then COVID-19 showed up and everything changed.

Renovating A Historic Downtown Treasure

on Feb 25, 2020 11:40:19 AM By | Kathy Pigg | 1 Comment | Historic Renovation
Located on the east side of the historic Downtown Pulaski Square, The Standard Drug Building has been a fixture in the community for decades. Last year, owners Dr. Steve Osborne and Dr. Clay Osborne approached us about renovating the building into new office space.  The owners have a passion for Pulaski and decided to hire Brindley Construction to make their ideas come to life. They wanted to celebrate The Standard Building as not only a reference to the past, but as a standard to what our beautiful, historic buildings can be with a little tender loving care. They also saw huge potential for the building’s use and also in the beauty of the brick walls, wood ceilings and original flooring.

Wheelerton Baptist Church Continues to Grow

on Apr 16, 2019 7:11:00 PM By | Kathy Pigg | 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 | Kathy Pigg | 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.
