St. Anthony's Catholic Church is a growing, active community of people dedicated to their parish and to the Risen Christ. With the steady growth the church was seeing, they were looking to expand. When they contacted Brindley Construction for assistance, we were more than happy to lend a hand.
Brindley Construction was selected as the design-build contractor for St. Anthony’s Catholic Church’s new Parish Life Center in Fayetteville, Tennessee. The new facility consists of a 10,800–square-foot custom pre-engineered metal building. The facility includes new classrooms, a multi-purpose social hall, full-sized kitchen, gymnasium and restrooms. The Brindley Team worked with Architect Michael Stewart who designed the structure's beautiful and functional layout.
The Brindley crew broke ground in November of 2019 and the project was completed February of 2021. “Weather was our biggest obstacle,” says Project Manager Tim Rohling. “We had a lot of rain during site work that pushed us back three months.”
Another obstacle the team faced was the removal of rock. Because the rock could not be blasted, Brindley crews had to hammer all the rock—which significantly increased the amount of labor on the project.
Nevertheless, our team persevered and, through the leadership of Superintendent Sammy Dickey and the hard work of our subcontractors, the Parish Life Center was completed.
"Even though there was some project difficulties, everything was fully explained, and reasonable steps were taken to achieve project solution that is considered very acceptable to the parishioners." says Richard Paladino, Project Representative for St. Anthony.
On March 21st, Father George blessed the new building and classrooms, officially opening the facility for use. We appreciate everyone at St. Anthony Catholic Church for letting Brindley Construction be a part of this process and we wish them many years of love and laughter in their new fellowship hall.
