How Brint Construction Began
Brint Construction was started by Tim and Susan Byrom in 1985 and was incorporated to form Brint Construction, Inc. in 1993. We are a family owned and operated business who is committed to the quality of our product and the success of our community. Since inception we have exclusively built custom homes right here on the Bolivar Peninsula. In addition to building homes on Bolivar, we has also developed several local neighborhoods that numerous families now call home.
The first home built by Brint Construction was in 1985. It is located in the Sandpiper subdivision and, in spite of Hurricane Ike and other major tropical storms, still stands to this day. In fact, over 90% of the homes we have constructed survived the devastation of Ike. Each of these homes are testaments to the construction practices we employ on a daily basis. These construction practices strive to incorporate the best products available on the market including James Hardie siding, Tech-shield roof decking, southern yellow pine lumber, engineered concrete slabs and stainless steel fasteners.
We were the first builder on the peninsula to utilize all galvanized nails in our framing and stainless steel nails on all exposed areas. Additionally, Brint was the first to insist on wrapping the entire frame structure in plywood for added rigidity. All of these concepts have been our standard building practices since 1985 and have now become standard throughout the industry. Additionally, Brint utilizes stainless steel through bolts to fasten the home to its piling system and we remain one of the few builders on Bolivar who do so.
Brint Construction Now
The second generation of Brint Construction, Inc. has been unfolding here on Bolivar since 2008. Brian and Clint Byrom, the company’s namesakes, have taken over the family business and have been working to continue the legacy their father, Tim, has created.
In 2009, Brint built its permanent home office located at 970 Surfside Drive, right on Highway 87 in Crystal Beach. In 2011 Brint Residential Services was created in an effort to make the weekend and vacation home ownership experience even better. With the existence of Brint Construction, Inc. and Brint Residential Services, a home owner can have a high quality home constructed to their specifications and then have its required routine maintenance cared for as well. This combination truly makes for a hassle free vacation home ownership experience. Most recently, in 2012, Brint Construction expanded its operations to include custom home building and remodeling in the South/South Eastern region of Houston and down the 45 South corridor.
Brian Byrom, the “BR” in Brint, manages the daily operations and building projects on the Bolivar Peninsula. Tim, the “I” in Brint, is on Bolivar nearly every day working with community leaders and local businesses to bolster the Bolivar Peninsula and its local economy. Clint, the “NT”, manages the projects Brint undertakes off of Bolivar and the logistics of the business. We strive to build a home that is as maintenance free as possible for our home owners. Our philosophy is that a home owner should be able to enjoy their home, not have to work on it all the time.
The Lone Survivor Foundation’s mission is to restore, empower, and renew hope for our wounded service members and their families through health, wellness, and therapeutic support. Overseas deployments and combat action can take a serious toll on everyone involved – from the men and women on the front lines to the friends and families who wait patiently for their loved ones to return home. America’s Armed Forces are asked to perform at exceptionally high standards in the most demanding circumstances and that service demands incredible sacrifice, dedication, and in some cases debilitating personal transformation. Transitioning to post-military life, whether wounded in combat or simply adjusting to the civilian sector, will often cause difficulty for the service member and his or her family. The unfortunate reality for many service members and their families is that life changes after the loved one returns home and the effects of their experiences begin to manifest in negative ways. In short, the normalcy of life prior to their service may have been lost forever. Therefore, the Lone Survivor Foundation is here to help America’s wounded service members and their families adjust to the effects of their experiences and help them transition into what may be looked at as their ‘new normal’ – providing an understanding and acceptance of who they are as a person, a family, and a community.
The Lone Survivor Foundation was established in 2010 by Retired Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell. The foundation was created based upon his first hand experiences of what is needed to provide holistic healing beyond standard government programs. Marcus tells the traumatic and emotionally raw account of his survival and the deaths of 19 of his comrades in Operation Red Wings in his 2007 #1 New York Times bestselling book, Lone Survivor and the upcoming 2014 Universal movie which holds the same name. Since 2010, the Lone Survivor Foundation has raised funds to benefit our combat soldiers who deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI), Military Sexual Trauma (MST) and chronic pain. The intent for creating the foundation was to bring the wounded service members into the same type of environment that healed Marcus while honoring the fallen heroes of Operation Red Wings.
The LSF retreat program is a place of peace and beauty, where there is a close-knit and understanding support system. Providing a place where the service members and their families can heal together as they all work through the consequences of war. The foundation holds a five-day retreat program at ranches in Texas, Washington, and Georgia for veterans and their families. And, we are proud to announce a Beach Facility along the Gulf Coast which will break ground Spring 2014. These all-inclusive retreat programs are provided at no cost for the participants. During the program, veterans are provided support for invisible injuries through psycho educational groups, Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) using the EAGALA method, as well as individual sessions focused on brief stress reduction exercises to reduce symptoms of traumatic stress and pain. The foundation is dedicated to honoring and remembering American service members by providing unique educational, rehabilitation, recovery, and wellness opportunities to U.S. Armed Forces members, their spouses, children and caregivers.Donate Now
