Brandon Arrington brings a wealth of construction knowledge to the team at Paragon 360™, with over fifteen years of experience in the construction industry. He spent 12 years working with DeWitt & Associates in Springfield, MO, the premier commercial general contractor in Southwest Missouri. Starting as an Apprentice Carpenter in the Carpenter’s Union, and working his way up to Superintendent, Brandon has been a part of some of the largest & most notable projects in the region.
Brandon has been involved in projects that include the Springfield-Branson National Airport, JQH Arena, Greene County Emergency Management Center, Mercy Orthopedic Hospital, Missouri State University Recreation Center, Jordan Valley Parking Garage, Bass Pro Shops, and the Mercy Hospital South Tower expansion, as well as numerous projects for area schools.
No project was more memorable than the work performed the night of May 22, 2011, the night an EF-5 tornado devastated Joplin, Missouri. Brandon was part of a crew that was called in from DeWitt & Associates to try and get one of two area hospitals operational again. Mercy Hospital was already a lost cause due to catastrophic damage. The crew went to work on Freeman Hospital, dealing with one emergency after another, while trying to keep the hospital operating for the massive patient load. Following the devastation, there were many weekends and sleepless nights until Freeman Hospital was fully operational again. After the work at Freeman concluded, Brandon was one of several Superintendents responsible for the re-building of the new state-of-the-art Joplin Mercy Hospital that opened in the Spring of 2014.
As part of the Paragon 360™ Installation Team, Brandon works with scenic & staging systems, in addition to the installation of AVL systems. He brings considerable knowledge & expertise to Paragon 360™ regarding construction projects and coordination among trades. Brandon will also be heading up our growing FabriTRAK division.
