Who we are + What we do

The Minnesota Builders Exchange (MBEX) is a progressive, non-profit trade association providing our members with construction project leads, bidding documents and opportunities to network within the construction industry.

Since 1888, our builders exchange has existed for the sole purpose of assisting our member companies and their employees.

Our staff of reporters research and provide project leads and construction bidding documents on over 5,000 projects annually.

Via an online and physical plan room, our members access construction projects from Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Wisconsin — all included with membership!

What Our Members Are Saying

We've been a member of the builders exchange ever since we've been in existence. We support MBEX because its values are very similar to the ones that we find important: integrity to its members, support of the community and having fun at work.


— Russ Reger, Dem-Con Companies LLC

The biggest benefit to being a MBEX member is the convenience of being able to come to the same place every day rather than driving hundreds of miles every week to various general contractor offices to do the same time. Being a member saves both time and money.


— Matt Packer, Hinrichs Estimating

The plan room is an indespensible part of our plan review process. The online plan room is helpful for viewing addenda printing our some of the plans we review.

The biggest benefit of partnering with MBEX has been the opportunity to meet a lot of new people. Some of it creates more work, some of it doesn't, but the relationships are long-lasting.
