Brett Construction Co. named among 2012 top builders by Metal Construction News

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 5, 2013) – Brett Construction Co. was again named one of the nation’s top metal builders by Metal Construction News, the nation’s leading news magazine for the metal construction industry. For 2012, Brett Construction moved up in rankings for both total square footage and tonnage.

In just one year, Brett Construction advanced seven spots to become the nation’s 28th largest metal construction builder by square footage and advanced 14 spots to become the nations 39th largest metal construction builder by tonnage.

“We work hard to provide our clients with quality projects that are completed on time and within budget,” said Brett Setzer, CEO of Brett Construction Co. “One of our greatest measures of success is that many of our clients are both long-standing and current. We don’t just build a single project, we partner on multiple projects in multiple locations.”

Brett is a full-service contracting company based in Lexington, Ky., with 25 years of experience providing quality service and craftsmanship on commercial construction projects. The firm’s client base is comprised of industrial, institutional and commercial companies throughout Kentucky and the United States. National clients include FedEx, Conway Freight, Transfreight, and Urban Active. Local clients include Glenn Automotive Group, Paul Miller Automotive, and Fortune Realty.

Brett Construction Co. works exclusively with Varco Pruden Buildings, a world leader in pre-engineered metal and steel construction systems based in Memphis, Tenn., that serves a national and international client base.

“Varco Pruden not only provides a high-quality product for our clients, but they also allow us to meet our scheduling deadlines,” Setzer said. “One of the benefits of metal construction is how quickly we can plan and build a facility and have it ready for client use. Varco Pruden’s manufacturing capability helps us meet those accelerated schedules.”

In addition to commercial construction, Brett Construction shares ownership with Setzer Properties, a national real estate investment and development firm with more than 20 years of experience. The firm has developed more than 3 million s.f. of space for projects across 20 states totaling more than $300 million.
