Bartlett Construction Management is owned and operated by its founder, Brad Bartlett. Early on, his mother and father preached the importance of learning a trade and gaining an education. Brad started his construction career at the age of 16, learning the trade of carpentry. Brad took his carpentry skills with him to Saint Augustine, FL where he worked for a custom design-build contractor, and commuted to the University of North Florida, earning a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Construction Management. Brad was one of the top recruited students from his graduating class of 2007, and landed an Assistant Project Manager position with The Stellar Group in Dubai. After 2 years’ experience working in a management position, overseeing the design build process of District Cooling Plants in the Middle East, Brad returned to the United States with the ambition of starting his own company. BCM was first established as a construction management company, partnering with industry leaders specializing in installation and integration of anti-terrorist crash barriers. This work also included sensitive situations, such as, physical security equipment at military sites and high profile access control points. Brad continued to gain industry knowledge and experience as a leader through BCM, and was able to manage, along with supervise, onsite construction for projects like Doha International Airport, Orlando VA medical center, Pensacola Naval Hospital, and multiple military installations. In the wake of the residential market crash Brad saw the opportunity to capitalize on the redevelopment of the residential housing market. The security work was put on the back burner and crews were developed to support the growing residential service needs. Today, Brad runs BCM out of Tarpon Springs, FL as a residential and small commercial company.
