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
The pandemic did not only cause a shortage and price increases on toilet paper and cleaning supplies—it is impacting the cost of construction materials as well. The demand for large-scale construction, coupled with the issues in the supply chain created by the pandemic, is rippling through the entire construction market, driving prices up and creating material shortages and delays in delivery. 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.

How Does Brindley Stay Safe on the Job?

on May 11, 2021 7:15:00 PM By | Lauren Reed | 0 Comments | Brindley Team safety frito-lay
Ask any construction business owner, regardless of the size of their firm, what their top priority is and you will probably get the same response every time—worker safety. The real question owners should be asking their general contractors is whether their safety program is vigorous enough to meet their commitment to protecting their workers. Four of the leading causes of construction worker fatalities are falls, electrocutions, being struck by objects, and being caught in or between objects. OSHA has dubbed these the “Fatal Four” and that typically accounts for over half of all construction worker deaths each year. Construction is one of the most dangerous industries to work in, which is why programs and initiatives like Construction Safety Week (May 3 - 7, 2021) are so important to raising awareness about the importance of construction safety. Our commitment to staying safe and focusing on the job is a point of pride and strength that runs across our entire company. This is why—as individuals and a team—we must be alert, observant and always looking out for each other’s back.

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.

Since 1988, Legends Steakhouse and the Brass Lantern have been serving high quality, made-from-scratch dishes across Middle Tennessee and Northern Alabama. They have an ongoing commitment to excellent service and exceptional quality. When Legends approached Brindley Construction with the opportunity to renovate their restaurant in Columbia, Tennessee, we knew this was a perfect match. The project began March 2020, with a complete demolition of the interior of the building. Upgrades include the installation of all new woodwork, wainscoting, flooring, and bar area, as well as a complete renovation of the kitchen and restrooms. The exterior of the building features stacked stone columns, exterior insulation and finish systems, and new paint. The entrance to the restaurant was relocated and the exterior upgrades included new paving, sidewalks, and landscaping. The architectural drawings, provided by George Nuber, really led this project.

Helping Auto Parts Manufacturers Meet Demand

The environment facing automotive sector manufacturers is fierce. Changing regulations, competition, ever-changing technology and customer preferences—not to mention the pandemic and a fluid, global economy—create challenging conditions for automakers as well as their suppliers. Brindley Construction understands this. Our team has learned much from our experience. We understand that every project these days needs to be fast-tracked—requiring quick turnaround, coordination and completion to optimize cash flow and to get new products to market, or to boost production capacity to meet demand.  We understand the need to continually refine our process to build more efficient, flexible, and sustainable plants. We know that our company must also be as competitive and responsive to auto parts manufacturers as they must be with their own clients. As a design-build construction company, we have extensive experience constructing manufacturing facilities, warehouses, distribution centers, offices, and associated structures for the auto parts industry. Our work in the southern region of the U.S. includes both specialty design projects and expedited construction using pre-engineered metal buildings. In the past few years, we have built more than 500,000 square feet of industrial space for auto parts manufacturers alone in Tennessee, representing millions of dollars of investment and thousands of new jobs.
