After eight years in commercial construction development, Trey Goldstein realized he wanted to work on projects that were more personally meaningful. He wanted to work more closely with individuals and families instead of corporations. With those goals in mind, and after a lot of prayer and planning, Trey decided that residential home development was the right place for him.
In its first eight years, Cotton Construction has built many new homes and completed numerous renovation and addition projects for an array of clients. Though each project is unique, every project is built to Trey’s personal standards, which he has instilled at every level of the company.
Today, Cotton Construction continues to grow, while always remaining dedicated to the attention to detail and to the clients’ wishes that sets Cotton apart from other builders.
Trey Goldstein grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. After graduating from Auburn University with a degree in building science, he returned to Birmingham to begin his career in commercial real estate development. In his eight years as a commercial project manager, Trey was a team member involved in projects totaling almost $1 billion with the largest project equaling over $450 million and spanning over two and a half years. During the largest project, Trey was a member of a five man site team that had nearly 400 people working under their guidance.
When he founded Cotton Construction, Trey applied his knowledge of commercial development to his residential projects. Because of his background, he has been able to implement systems of project management that are uncommon in residential development. These systems allow Trey and Cotton Construction to keep jobs on track and deliver on time and within budget.
Although Trey brings serious business acumen to projects, his passion for what Cotton Construction brings to families shows in his smile. “I love working directly with home owners and seeing their dreams come true. Nothing is as fulfilling as move-in day when a family turns a house into their home.”
