New break room and administrative offices
Brindley crews constructed a new break room and administrative offices for Clayton Cavalier Homes, a modular mobile home manufacturer, in Addison, Alabama. The new break room was constructed on the front of the plant and consists of 10,500 square feet of finished café space and 2,300 square feet of covered patio. Plant employees can now enjoy a rustic dining and break space complete with a large conference room, four administrative offices, new restrooms, a fully-furnished commercial kitchen fitted with stainless steel appliances, and outdoor seating.
Project Manager Jeff Brindley and Superintendent Sammy Dickey masterfully handled the challenges that arose during construction. After the architectural designs were complete and the design-build project was underway, the client decided to totally redesign the building. These changes included exterior materials, building heights, interior finishes, ceiling treatment, and lighting fixtures.
The exterior walls are constructed of various metal finishes and are of alternate heights, adding a dramatic look to the front of the plant. Interior finishes include a polished concrete floor, barn wood clouds attached to the ceiling, as well as rustic furniture and lighting fixtures. The Brindley team was happy to accommodate our client’s changes, though it did add 12 weeks to the construction schedule. The $2.5 million addition was completed in just one year.
This project was recognized as one of the most impressive and unique construction projects in 2019 by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Greater Tennessee and the Associated Builders and Contractors of North Alabama. Brindley Construction received an Excellence in Construction Award from both industry organization chapters for its work on the design-build project. In addition to the Excellence in Construction Awards, Brindley Construction was also awarded the ABC of North Alabama Safety Award for Brindley’s perfect safety record on the Clayton Cavalier Homes project. To top it off, the Clayton Cavalier Homes project earned the coveted ABC Eagle Award for National Excellence in Construction.
