Nissan Stadium

Please consider this our letter of recommendation for PBG Builders, Inc. PBG Builders has been the contractor of choice for the Tennessee Titans since the team moved to Nashville in the late 90's.

They have consistently finished our projects on schedule, on or under budget, and in a manner that minimized the impact to our ongoing operations. Our projects always have tight schedules where great flexibility is needed to ensure that we don't interfere with planned player activities and venue events.

We recently completed a number of projects under that had numerous events to work around. One notable project was a waterproofing and stadium seating project for the stadium in excess of $15 million dollars. This project was especially challenging because it was completed in phases to eliminate interference with soccer games, CMA Fest, and other concerts. The PBG Builders, Inc. team managed the job effectively, they finished on time and under budget.

I have no hesitation in recommending PBG Builders, Inc. for any new construction or renovation project Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I have had the privilege of working with PBG Builders on several projects over the past couple of years.

I would like to highlight several traits that exemplify the unique approach they bring to their projects.

Quality of Work - PBG has built a strong network of qualified dedicated subcontractors and craftsmen to perform their work. In the current turbulent period of construction in our area, the retention of this core workforce is a testament to the professionalism of the management team. The construction personnel know that on a PBG project they are going to have the opportunity to perform the work with high quality, in sequence, on time and with good project controls.

Quality of Management - PBG possesses a strong, complimentary team throughout the various organizational roles. The field superintendents are highly knowledgeable and respected construction veterans with long tenures with PBG. Even with these high caliber superintendents constantly on site, the senior management Is extremely involved on a day to day basis with every project. The management systems and protocols are extremely well defined and closely followed. The administration diligently supports the field and senior management.

Quality of Analysis - Given PBG's regular role in construction management, owner's representation, and expert witness testimony, they have a broad understanding of industry best practices and marketplace trends. In many aspects. this breadth of work allows PBG to offer the best aspects of a large construction firm such as extremely competitive pricing and rigorous process controls along with the best aspects of a small construction firm, such as close, day-to-day oversight from and relationships with senior management and innovative project specific problem solving. I strongly advocate for bringing PBG Builders into a project as early as possible to allow the project to benefit from their ability to analyze and establish the construction budget, the construction schedule and the overall constructability of the project.

Quality of Communication - I think the quality I would most highly recommend PBG's emphasis on communication which cannot be underestimated on a construction project. With any project, regardless of the drawing set or the scope of the project, there will be a thousand questions or potential issues. PBG's default nature is to bring these potential items to light as early in the process as possible, communicate the potential impact on the schedule, budget or quality and offer solutions that allow the project team to successfully move forward. I think that PBG Builders is committed to proactive communication to afford the entire project team the best possible project outcome.

BF Myers Furniture

“As we approached our decision at B.F.Myers to expand our showroom, we considered a couple of factors to be of the utmost importance. First, we needed to find a construction company that knew what needed to be done, and also possessed the ability to GET IT DONE. Powell Building Group did just that; from designing the building, to working through unexpected obstacles, all the way to completing the project on time.” 

– Bob Erwin, Owner, B.F.Myers Furniture

“Powell is very good to work with because they go above and beyond what is normally expected of a general contractor.

“Mitsi and I would like to say thank you for the professional job your company has recently completed in the Ridings and ASMBA suites. Even though this was a small job relatively, it was handled as if it was your largest job. We would especially like to express our confidence in your project manager Todd Bailey. He handled the entire job diligently, professionally, and communicated at all times with us when there were any questions. He coordinated the subcontractors very well, and obviously this makes it much easier on us when we have discussions with the tenants. Rest assured, when “bigger” jobs come along, your company will be the first one contacted.”
