Keller Williams Office for Brody Broker Team
The Brody Broker Team with Keller Williams Olympic in Sequim, Wash. is growing rapidly. For reasons ranging from energy efficiency to timing, owner-CEO Brody Broker has chosen a steel building from EcoSteel to provide offices for his quickly-expanding team. The new single-story, 9,200-square-foot building will feature brick red and steel gray exterior colors with a medley of dark accents included.
Broker liked EcoSteel’s willingness to work with his team to create the design, along with its ability to produce a cost estimate within days of receiving the architect’s design. He estimates the process would have taken a month longer using a traditional builder.
Broker’s choice of an EcoSteel building rested on several key considerations. The first was simplified, low cost construction, reducing the number of trades involved and dispensing with need for interior drywall. A second is lower maintenance. Steel is an inorganic material impervious to warping, rotting, splitting, cracking or termites, meaning maintenance is limited to power washing and cleaning of gutters.
A third is resistance to Mother Nature’s growing wrath, evident in natural disasters. Steel structures are proven less impacted by natural disaster than traditional materials. A fourth is energy efficiency made possible with the thermal insulated wall panels that do away with interior structural members and eliminate thermal bridging.
With his new building’s completion, Broker will increase his staff from 75 to 100. His experience to date has convinced him he’ll use EcoSteel’s services to build additional structures in the future. “EcoSteel has been great,” he says.
