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.
