Q&A With Kathy Pigg on Her 50 Years at Brindley Construction

on Nov 2, 2020 9:13:09 AM By | Lauren Reed | 1 Comment | Brindley Team
Can you tell us about how you began at Brindley Construction? I had just graduated from high school. I had been the Valedictorian and had earned a scholarship to college. I met my first husband in January of that year and I fell in love and got married instead of going to college. I was on my honeymoon when I discovered Mr. Brindley was looking for his first hire in the office. Mr. Brindley had an accountant and he asked him for recommendations. My aunt worked for the accountant and recommended me to the accountant, who then recommended me to Mr. Brindley. I came in for an interview while I was on my honeymoon. I was as nervous as ever! Mr. Brindley asked me if I knew how to post job costs and I told him I didn’t know but I could certainly learn. I fell in love with the job and the company as soon as I got involved.

on Oct 14, 2020 9:30:44 AM By | Ronnie Brindley | 6 Comments | Brindley Team
We sat down recently with Brindley Construction's new Marketing Director, Lauren Reed, and asked her to tell us about her experience during the first couple of weeks in her new role. Can you tell us a little bit about your education and prior work experience? I am an alumni from Martin Methodist College where I received a B.A in Business Administration and was part of the Student Activities Organization. I started out my career as a Purchasing Intern for Magneti Marelli where I worked my way up to Commodity Buyer and had the opportunity to work with Brindley and other local businesses here in Pulaski. In 2019 I worked for Pulte Homes in Franklin as a Procurement Agent, where I worked with the contractors and the construction crew in the field. The hustle and bustle of the construction industry keeps me on my feet and is an exciting industry to work in!

Best Made Plans

on Sep 1, 2020 1:26:00 PM By | Ronnie Brindley | 2 Comments | Brindley Team
This year’s plans were big. Really big. For starters, Brindley Construction is celebrating our 60th Anniversary of delivering commercial construction projects to customers throughout the Southeast. We had planned a big party and some local activities in the community to help celebrate our six decades of service. We also completed a project for Clayton Cavalier Homes in Addison, Alabama that won regional awards in both Tennessee and North Alabama and was ultimately recognized at the national level with the coveted Associated Builders and Contractors Eagle Award for Excellence in Construction. We had also planned our annual company outings and activities, something we really enjoy doing with our talented and dedicated team of employees. And then COVID-19 showed up and everything changed.

College Not Required for Great Construction Careers

on Feb 9, 2019 3:03:00 AM By | Brindley Construction | 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? Basically, 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 the university to find themselves forced to work in low-wage jobs and burdened with excessive college loan debt.
