At MRB we believe that longevity of what we build is the cornerstone of sustainability. We are not alone. Recently we had chance to chat with Stefan and Breanna, partners at Keel Agencies. Keel specializes in building products of all types, with a focus on more sustainable approaches and long lifestyle products. Their market ranges across Atlantic Canada, Quebec and Bermuda.
From permeable pavers, to products for vegetative roofs, storm water management, breathable membranes, mineral based insulation, fire-stop products, all types of fasteners, and architectural finishes, Keel’s list of building products is quite impressive and growing.
One of the product lines they represent is called VaproShield. In our last post we talked about using the VaproShield products for weather proofing the doors and windows at Kingsburg 1. The WrapShield product we used for the doors and windows is akin to GoreTex – a real innovation for the building industry. And that’s just the beginning. Keel also represents products from Firestone, STI Inc., Bison and more.
The photos below illustrate some samples of various steel and wire products used for lighting, shade and flooring.
It’s not the products alone that defines Keel Agencies focus. Stefan and Breanna are members of the Canadian Green Building Council. They are working towards their LEED GA accreditation, and are active in educating their clients and partners about more sustainable and long lasting building materials. Keel Agencies is focused on providing our construction industry with leading edge materials to enhance the longevity and health of our living and work spaces.
