Brooks Design / Build Inc, of Steamboat Springs, CO, was founded in 1974 in Spokane, Washington by Gilbert Brooks. Twenty years later, Mr. Brooks passed along the company name – along with two decades’ worth of accumulated knowledge and expertise – to his grandson, Brian Hanlen.

Brian formed Brooks Construction in Steamboat Springs in 1996, specializing in cabinetry, staircases, and high-end finish work. An increasing demand for consistent and thorough residential design work and project management caused the company to shift its focus, and, in 2003, Brooks Construction reorganized as Brooks Design/Build, Inc – an adaptive and influential architectural design firm serving the unique mountain regions of Colorado.

By integrating classic trim details and proportions, timber frames, and salvaged wood with modern technologies like innovative heating and cooling systems, structurally insulated panels, and structural concrete, Brooks Design/Build, Inc strives to create spaces that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also forward-thinking.
