The Irons Brothers Construction team celebrating the opening of their new design center.
A new 1,600 square foot showroom was the centerpiece of a 15th anniversary celebration for Irons Brothers Construction in Shoreline, Wash. In 1999, when Joseph Irons started his own business, he was dedicated to providing a building experience unlike any other. Now, with dozens of local and national awards and hundreds of happy clients, Irons Brothers Construction has fulfilled its founder’s expectations and is looking forward to what lies ahead.
The new Design+Build Center is testimony to the company’s success, dreams, meticulous planning, and an eye toward the future.
“There isn’t much we don’t have on display,” says Irons. “From hi-tech lighting control features and shades to cabinets and countertops, custom mill work, paint finishes, flooring, doors, and windows, we make sure our clients see the complete picture.”
Original planning for the new showroom began in 2009 when the need for an interactive client experience became apparent. With the downturn of the economy, the project was put on hold. In 2011 the planning heated back up again, in time for the showroom to be completed for the 15th anniversary celebration.
One of the main areas of Irons expertise is working with aging-in-place clientele. “Universal design standards are used to help homeowners plan for the future, incorporating items such as transition-free flooring and using tasteful grab bars, lever handles and switches, all within the framework of the home’s design, making it more user friendly for all ages,” says Irons.
Irons, who originally worked alongside his older brother, Bruce, incorporated in 2004 as business began to grow and additional employees were hired.
Today, Irons Brothers Construction manages multiple projects with a full complement of seven full time employees, including a Director of Client Services, Maria Wilson, who has extensive, hands-on experience in construction and client relations.
At any one time, the company may be managing up to a dozen trade partners working at various locations on different projects. The company does have a track record of up to 50 to 75 successful projects annually and could have anywhere from 10 to 20 in progress at one time. PR
