Back to School Season

AugI’ve heard it described as “the most wonderful time of the year” by parents of school-aged children, while teachers and teens typically disagree. Back to school is a time to set goals for learning and growth over the next year while enacting a plan to ensure one’s success – a time to sharpen your pencil, so to speak.

Perhaps you too are taking stock of your planned growth for the next year. Maybe that growth includes relocation, expanding or just a fresh coat of paint. If you’ve got a plan, we can help ensure it’s success. If you’re starting with a blank slate, let us connect you with our team of skilled and friendly professionals; it’s like getting the ‘good’ teacher!

After all, a new project should be exciting, like a field trip to the cider mill but without the cramped and sweaty bus ride.

Summertime and the Living’s Easy

June 2016

It’s officially here – summer; sweet, sweet summer. The long, warm days combine with sunny disposition to create a season that can’t fully be explained but just has to be experienced.

There’s something else the summer brings -especially here in Michigan- and that’s construction. We are all very aware of the road construction projects which just happen to coincide with our otherwise cheer-filled season. Summer trips near and far can quickly come to a literal halt due to this busy time of pavement improvements. And while roadways are not in our construction portfolio, we sure are busy this summer working on projects of our own.

Fortunately, you won’t find any of our projects slowing things to a halt. Our skilled leaders are masters at planning, taking care of all the coordination and scheduling that keep projects moving forward.

Let Bren-Mar keep things rolling on your next project, handling all the hard work, so that you can enjoy that carefree experience of summertime, anytime of the year.

150 Years in the Making

Memorial Day 2016 USE

Remembering Together

First recognized in the South in 1866, Memorial Day was a simple and somber occasion with an intended purpose: to honor the dead and take care of a little housekeeping at the local cemetery.

Two years later and post-civil war, Union veterans in the North began celebrating their own holiday, Decoration Day. It was another simple occasion to decorate graves of the war dead with flowers.

To prevent confusion -and perhaps because they were still a little bitter- the South clarified that they had no intentions of sharing their holiday by renaming it Confederate Memorial Day. It took almost another 15 years until the two holidays shared the common “Memorial Day” title and a whopping 85 years more before it was made official.

This year marks a full 150 years since the first Memorial Day was recognized. And while it has certainly grown from a simple holiday, amidst the parades and celebrations, graves of our war dead still deserve to be honored and decorated.

As you celebrate this Memorial Day…remember.

A Call to Action

ReminderFingerSketch1What’s the only date that’s also a command? Stumped? It’s March fourth; or march forth. That’s about the extent of our trivia here at Bren-Mar Construction. And truth be told it’s a trivia from way back in high school. Isn’t it funny the little things that you remember?

Here at Bren-Mar, we hope one of the things you would remember about us is our ability to go above and beyond for our clients. We care and we’ll do just about anything for you. We’ve even tracked down Red Wings jersey’s to ship internationally for foreign fans north of the border. When we say our relationships are a driving force that set Bren-Mar apart we mean it.

 

Bren-Mar Mission Statement:

Happy Holidays

 

Holiday 2015During the holidays, we long to embrace treasured moments spent with family and friends, colleagues and clients alike. This time of year is alive with abundant sights, sounds and tastes of the holidays. We wrap ourselves in the season of goodwill and for a brief time, the world seems a kinder place under the gentle glow of Christmas lights.

As the year comes to a close and another lies just before us, we at Bren-Mar are grateful for all our blessings and those who share the journey with us. Your friendship, loyalty and business is what helped to make 2015 a successful year. As we look forward to the coming year, we believe in the goodness of life around us and the prosperity the New Year can bring.

It is our hope that all can share in the real joys of the season and find peace in the presence of one another, safekeeping and warmth in your homes, and faith in a world of greater kindness for the whole yearlong.

Happy Holidays

Gather with Gratitude

Thanksgiving Blog Image

Every year towards the end of November, the whole country pauses – if only for a day – in a moment of gratitude. We stop and reflect on the things we are grateful for, which are rarely ‘things’ and often people and relationships: friends, family, neighbors and even pets.

Gathering together to celebrate Thanksgiving may be an annual tradition but the gratitude we recognize on this day carries throughout the entire year. As we join our family and friends around the table, it is our sincere hope that we will savor every moment shared. Between passing side dishes and pies, may we all take the day to reflect on the blessings we have throughout the year.

May all your turkeys be cooked to perfection and surrounded with plentiful sides – Happy Thanksgiving!

ENJOYING THE BLESSINGS OF FREEDOM

This weekend, the Bren-Mar Team will join many of you in celebrating with our friends and family. While we enjoy the beautiful weather and a barbecue, let us pause for a moment to remember.

Let us remember that many have given their lives to secure the freedoms we enjoy. Let us remember to honor those who serve to protect us. Let us remember the families of our veterans who will gather this weekend without a loved one among them.

Bren-Mar Construction would like to express our gratitude and appreciation for all our veterans.

As you celebrate this Memorial Day…remember.
