How to Avoid Hiring the Wrong Contractor and the Benefits of Choosing a Good One

on Oct 27, 2022 8:14:22 PM By | Brindley Construction | 0 Comments | Insider Brindley Team 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. 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. 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.

College Not Required for Great Construction Careers

on Jun 25, 2022 3:03:00 AM By | Ronnie Brindley | 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? 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 university to find themselves forced to work in low-wage jobs and burdened with excessive college loan debt.

At the end of 2021 we announced that four, long-standing employees were retiring. We have thrown the parties, passed out all the hugs and wished them all a happy retirement. Though they will be missed dearly, and they can never be replaced, we are happy to announce that we have a game plan to keep operations running smoothly. As you may know, it is a contractor’s job to think ahead and be willing to adapt to change.

Project Delivery Systems… Which One is Best for You?

on Feb 11, 2022 7:30:00 PM By | Ronnie Brindley | 0 Comments | Design-Build
Under the design-build delivery method, construction can begin earlier, with fewer issues because they were addressed earlier during the pre-construction phase where we develop the budget and the schedule. The construction industry is no different than other industries when it comes to having its own set of terms and phrases that sometimes aren’t as obvious to people who don’t work within the industry. Naturally, when we talk about “construction delivery systems,” there can be a lot of confusion. Most people don’t know that there is more than one way to manage a construction project as well as the contractual relationship between the parties. The Project Delivery Institute defines a construction project delivery system as “the structure of the relationships of the parties, the roles and responsibilities of the parties, and the general sequence of activities required to deliver the project.” In the most basic terms, it defines how the parties are related to each other contractually throughout the progress of the project. These “parties” are typically the owner, design team (architects, engineers), and general contractor. It may seem as though the relationships are easy to define, but many projects require these relationships to be adapted or changed to meet the project’s objectives.

Value Engineering: What Is It and How Can It Benefit You and Your Next Project?

on Oct 18, 2021 6:45:00 PM By | Ronnie Brindley | 0 Comments | Brindley Team
There is a lot of talk about value engineering. But what exactly is it? And how does it work in your best interests as a buyer of construction services?  By definition, value engineering was born at General Electric during World War II. Shortages of skilled labor, raw materials, and parts forced G.E.’s Lawrence Miles—the father of what he termed “value analysis”—to look for acceptable substitutes. Miles and his team noticed that these substitutions often reduced costs, improved the product, or both.
