What We Do

Here at Brawner, we are a general contractor with our own forces and equipment. We are diversified in horizontal and vertical construction. We are capable of handling emergencies if needed in addition to being on-call contract experts.

Our organization is committed to and actively involved in On-Call/IDIQ Contracting services as they relate to construction and contracting. We have completed hundreds of projects at the University of Maryland affiliated campuses and the United States Naval Academy by utilizing this approach. Other mainstay clients include MTA, SHA, MDTA, MAA, DGS, County School Systems and the Baltimore County government.

An additional method of construction that we implement frequently is Design/Build construction. This can best be described by a scenario in which an owner wants an entire building or bridge constructed on a turn-key basis.  This results in savings for the owner due to a reduction in overhead costs, total program value-engineering, financing and acceleration of schedule.The project starts with a concept for utilizing space more effectively and the owner conveys his/her ideas either through a space plan or by verbally expressing their vision during the initial walk-through.  We have the in-house capacity, in this case, to take the initial idea through working drawings to the permit stage.


Who We Are

Since our inception, we have tried to build a diversified company with people that we enjoy working with.  This philosophy carries over to our corporate relationships with our clients. We have fun with what we do and strive to make the construction process enjoyable for our clients as well. By closely partnering with our clients and forming a strong working relationship we are able to communicate effectively and address the needs of each individual project.  We attribute the success of long lasting relationships with our clients to the fact that we have built the foundations of our company on the tenets of integrity, service and excellence.


The most enjoyable part about Brawner Builders is the friendly atmosphere and the new opportunities that are always open for me to take on. The great community of employees with experience all the way to 30 + years have worked in all aspects of the construction industry and are always willing to help newcomers. The industry we are in is dynamic and Brawner Builders is great destination to make a career.

Our History

Brawner Builders, Inc. was founded  in 1980 by Jay Brawner, our firm was built on the principles of honesty, integrity, service and diversity.  

Early on, our company was not well known and was lacking a reputation in the industry from which to build.  Consequently, each client was a new client, which gave us an incredible opportunity to prove our expertise and leave a lasting impression.  We tried many things for the first time with each instance yielding success rather than failure.

Brawner Builders, Inc. has grown and merged its two offices into one main headquarters in Hunt Valley, MD. Through this change, we have been able to maintain our hands-on approach with all of our clients and colleagues. We have been involved in building renovations, new construction of offices, shopping centers, heavy industrial plants, academic institutions, roads and bridges. Consequently, we at Brawner Builders believe that we will be prepared for any challenge we may face and will continue to set the standard of excellence in the construction field.
