Breakell Inc., 'Green" Roanoke Builder, Closes

Breakell Inc. in Roanoke, a major construction firm with a green reputation, has closed at least partly because an employee cheated the company out of more than $1 million, according to the chairman and CEO of Breakell.

The company is more than 50 years old and in recent years has been a leader in the green building revolution, starting with its own offices, which were heated and cooled by the sun. Charges are pending against former project manager Jamie Graham, who has been indicted by a federal grand jury.

The company’s Patterson Avenue headquarters has been sold at auction (bought by Suntrust Bank for $288,750).
