The Hammer Episode #14: Builders and Brews – Byron Brooks, Brookwright Developments
As event concepts go, Byron Brooks’ Builders and Brews has the twin advantages of simplicity and instant appeal. Let’s get together and drink craft beer. Brooks was inspired to launch his series of evening get-togethers for Calgary’s construction trades community when he saw how the local craft brewing industry collaborated to help each other with advice, labour and even supplies. So he joined forces with the brewers and started hosting casual events where contractors could get together, hear a short talk from an interesting speaker, then compare notes and lies over some wobbly pops. Byron joined The Hammer to tell us all about how it’s going, how he got the idea and how his background made him a fan of working with others in the trade.
Today I speak with Byron Brooks of Brookwright Developments. An all around awesome human and great building mind. We discuss how to grow the builder-client relationship through helpful skills like empathy. Also, a few notes about building as a service based business.
Today on The Kondrat Podcast, I sat down with Byron Brooks, Co-Founder of Brookwright Developments. While connecting with some local craft breweries, Byron noticed that they had a more collaborative way of doing business. We discuss how Byron is bringing the “collaboration over competition” mindset from the beer community to the construction industry.Bryon has been in the construction industry for over two decades and has built a reputation of building high-quality custom homes that focus on “craft” rather than “commodity”. When talking about how long he’s been in construction Byron jokes, “I’ve been in construction since my high school principal invited me to leave school a couple of months early” - and he’s never looked back!We discuss some of the challenges that face the construction industry. COVID-19 is the obvious one that they have to deal with. Byron also points out other challenges that he hopes to change such as the industry's reluctance to invest meaningfully into research and development.In his effort to make the industry more collaborative, Byron has created an event series called Builders and Brews. “Our mission is to make the homebuilding industry better through education, collaboration, and giving back to our communities.” Byron is working hard to make a positive impact in his community - I hope you enjoy our surprisingly interesting conversation.—The Kondrat Podcast: website | twitter | instagram | facebookByron Brooks, Brookwright Developments: website | twitter | instagram

Byron Brooks is the co-founder of Brookwright Inc, a custom home building company focused on delivering on every cliche you can think of that would normally show up in a construction bio! Integrity, craftsmanship, quality, luxury (ewww)... all that stuff! Where Brookwright has found success is through delivering on the industry expectations while also prioritizing the relationships that are formed along the way.
