Mr. Pugh was formally introduced at the ABC Alabama Chapter’s Excellence in Construction Banquet held on November 3. His term will commence in January 2017.
“It is certainly unique to elect an attorney as chair of the Associated Builders and Contractors, but with David’s background and history with the Association, and his desire to better the construction industry, he was the clear choice this year,” said ABC President Jay Reed.

During his acceptance, Mr. Pugh addressed his goals for 2017, his passion for the craft training needed for future industry professionals, and his desire to see the ABC Alabama Chapter serve as the voice of contractors and builders throughout the state.
ABC’s Nominating Committee and the ABC Alabama Chapter’s general membership elected Mr. Pugh to the position. He was appointed based on his commitment to ABC’s mission, his background in construction and engineering, and because as a construction attorney, he represents a multitude of the ABC’s members and their interests.
As a member of Bradley’s Construction team, Mr. Pugh has represented owners, general contractors, subcontractors, engineers, architects, insurance companies and sureties throughout the United States at every stage of a construction project, from conception and planning to performance and closeout.
