Helping Educate Our Future Workforce

To encourage continued industry growth, the Minnesota Builders Exchange Scholarship Fund awards scholarships annually to college and technical school students in construction related fields

In 2014, with the help of a new donating partner, The Builders Group (TBG), the MBEX Scholarship Fund was able to reach further in helping show the importance of educating our future workforce.

What Our Members Are Saying

Membership to the electronic plan room saves us much time and expense as opposed to traveling to a stationary plan room or ordering paper plans.

— Mike Noonan, Cascade Manufacturing Co

I would like to congratulate the MBEX team for providing us with a very reliable and paper-reducing way to view and bid various projects. Again, thank you for a wonderful job done by your team members and thank you for providing us good service. Keep it up!

— Aalok Gautam, Commercial Plumbing & Heating

MBEX is one of the most used project lead sites by Pella locally. It is easy to navigate and access plans/specs. Thank you! Without MBEX we would not have as many opportunities.

— Toni Carlson, Pella Windows & Doors Inc- Twin Cities

After comparison, metrics and discussion, it was shown that the MBEX provides a superior level of information, detail and download speed for projects in the area.  Thanks again for providing a great service!  It's great to be a member.

— Peter Dzubay, Viega LLC
