Brett Construction Company Ranks in Top 10 Metal Builders in the Nation
LEXINGTON, KY Brett Construction Company continues to expand it's market share and advance even higher in the nation's top 10 metal builders. The list ranks the top 100 metal builders in the United States by two segments - square footage of metal constructed and by tonnage of steel purchased.
Brett Construction Company is the nation's eighth largest metal builder by square footage of metal constructed at 1,401,851 square feet in 2016, nearly three times the average of all of the nation's top metal builders. The firm advanced six places from last year to become the nation's ninth largest metal builder by tonnage of steel purchased with 4,000 tons in 2016, a 51.5 percent increase over the previous year's tonnage. Brett Construction Company is the only Kentucky company to reach the top 10 in either category, and broke into the top 10 in tonnage for the first time in company history.
"One of our greatest measures of success is our long-standing client relationships," said Brett Setzer, CEO of Brett Construction Company. "As our clients continue to grow and expand their operations, we are fortunate enough to grow with them. Last year alone we doubled the amount of steel purchased from the previous year."
In 2016, Brett Construction Company constructed just more than 1.4 million square feet of pre-engineered metal building projects. The average building size was 100,000 square feet and the largest was a 250,000-square-foot facility in Macon, Georgia.
Brett Construction Company works exclusively with Varco Pruden Buildings, a world leader in pre-engineered metal and steel construction systems based in Memphis, Tennessee, that serves a national and international client base. Brett Construction Company is now the second largest builder within their network of nearly a thousand builders.
"Metal construction allows us to provide the quick turn-around our clients often need on development and construction projects," said Setzer. "Varco Pruden's manufacturing capability and extensive product line help us provide a quality building while meeting those accelerated schedules for our clients."
