News about the employees and events of T.W. Frierson Contractor, Inc.

2015 ~ FIRST EDITION

z

T.W. Frierson Contractor, and Design Constructors, Inc. have been named the Design/Build partner on the new Polaris Industries manufacturing plant in Huntsville, Alabama. T.W. Frierson was selected based in part on its capability to respond to the fast schedule; self performance of concrete, tilt-up concrete walls, structural steel and standing seam roof plus the speed of a pre-engineered solution and its relationship with Design Constructors highlighted our ability to achieve the eight (8) month turn-around.

After the founders created the first snow-machine in 1954 using a grain silo conveyor belt as a track and an old Chevy bumper for skis, Polaris started in earnest with the production of the Polaris Sno Traveler. Over the years Polaris has grown and adapted to now be a world leader in the design and production of All Terrain, Sport Utility, and recreational vehicles. The 775,000 SF production facility is the first for Polaris in the southern half of the United States, and will initially be producing the Ranger Side by Side Utility Vehicles. The plant will support several core processes including, vehicle assembly, chassis and body painting, welding, fabrication and injection molding.

We appreciate the opportunity to work with this fantastic organization, and are happy to be part of their first experience in the southern United States!

TWF wins ABC National Award!

T.W. Frierson Contractor, Inc. was recently awarded a

National Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Excellence in Construction Award. Best Brands, Inc. was recognized in the category of Pre-Engineered Building. Senior

Project Manager Andy Zimmerman teamed with Superintendent Ken Smith to construct this design-build

41,152 SF Office and Warehouse Addition. Thank you to everyone involved that helped make this possible. This is TWF’s first National Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors.

Throughout our history, T.W. Frierson has engaged in

“Strategic Planning” every four to five years. This commitment to assess ourselves, our markets, and our Clients

is an important element to our success. Guided by FMI, we strategically plan 1-2 years out with respectable accuracy and develop a vision for the next 3 years. As our strategic planning cycles have evolved over 25 years, each session gets more energetic and has become a tool for us to access what worked, acknowledge the failures and plan for future success.

Here is snapshot of the Five key components of our 2015’s Strategic Plan:

Invest in human resources and leadership development: We will develop an internship program, identify leaders in the field early and drive our TWF University program forward. This will help create career ladders that show a clear path for growth opportunities.

Expand Revenue/Volume while preserving overall margin: We have great people doing amazing things in the field, which is enabling us to grow the company. We immediately are looking back at our successes and failures in preconstruction and in the field to enhance our ability to get work. This ranges from better analyzing productivity, to more accurately estimating a job, and to more consistency in our presentation format to Clients.

Develop a deliberate Business Development culture: We continue to deepen existing client relationships – where 95% of our work originates – and foster new key clients in all of our market segments. We will take the necessary steps to actively identify key clients in each sector while ensuring the best resources and contacts are being made. Then, we will leverage our best-in-class success stories that focus on our key differentiators. Finally, we will aggressively investigate ways to strengthen our Tenant Improvement division and grow this area of our business.

Develop additional competencies to increase controls on projects: It begins with research and upgrades in Information Technology through iPads in the field, software training on Plan Grid or similar programs, and on screen take offs. We will take steps to better define the shop and yard capacity, inventory, and tracking of all tools and equipment. Lastly, we will increase consistency on all document management—ranging from design, to the field, to uniform proposal layouts and structure.

Create accountability to our Safety Protocol: Anyone engaged in the construction industry instantly recognizes the daily risks each worker takes on their jobsite. We take this very, very seriously. Our Safety Program, application, implementation, and coordination are excellent, but we need to enhance our already active Safety Culture. We’ve already made adjustments to our incentive plan, requiring all employees to have a minimum 10 hour OSHA Training. In addition to adding safety personnel, we are actively tapping resources, ideas, and successes available to us though our Captive Insurance group and Safety consultants.

As you can see, this is an aggressive Strategic Plan, and we are excited about this challenge. We will continue to keep everyone updated, and hope you will see our progress over the next 2 years. Dean and I thank each and every person

for what you do every day with T.W. Frierson.

Michael Dodson Retires

Last month we officially said farewell to our CFO of 24 years, Michael W. Dodson. Effective April 30th, Michael Melnyk assumed the role as chief

financial officer. He is responsible for all accounting and financial reporting, tax, banking,

bonding and financial strategy for the company. Prior to joining T.W. Frierson, Melnyk served as a principal partner with Franklin-based Melnyk & Melnyk, CPAs.

He started working in 1996 with Crowe Horwath in Brentwood as an audit senior manager with oversight of assurance engagements for companies in the construction, health care, manufacturing and distribution, and professional services industries. Melnyk is a member of the Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Dodson came to T.W. Frierson in 1991 as controller after having served since 1981 as controller and, later, as vice president and chief financial officer for Aladdin Resources Inc. He was promoted in 1993 to chief financial officer. Michael Dodson is looking forward to spending his time swimming, hiking, playing golf and traveling with his family.
