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 Aug 23, 2018 10:46:57 AM By | Brindley Construction | 0 Comments | Choosing a Contractor Design-Build
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.

Brindley Construction was recently recognized with a 2017 Excellence in Construction Award from the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) of North Alabama for an assisted living project for GoodWorks Unlimited, LLC. Our relationship with GoodWorks and its Director of Development Gary Keckley is one that spans more than 20 years and nearly 40 projects. Completed in August 2017, The Villages of Murfreesboro is an 85,132-square-foot senior independent living facility equipped with 85 resident rooms, a dining facility, and recreational amenities. The Villages of Murfreesboro offers a variety of housing and service options for senior adults. The facility is comprised of multiple “neighborhoods,” each named after notable women in the history of Rutherford County, Tennessee. The Villages was constructed with sustainability and low maintenance in mind. Multi-color brick as well as HardiePlank® were used for the exterior of the structure. HardiePlank’s resistance to rot and fade-resistant technology allows the Villages to manage its facility with a single maintenance employee. Additional sustainable features include programmable thermostats in the hallways and apartment units, argon-filled windows that meet low-emissivity requirements, and sunrooms on the second floor to provide natural indoor lighting.
