In Memoriam

posted on 11.25.2020

Jeffrey Lee Durant, 67, of Blaine, died on November 15, 2020. Jeff was president and co-owner of CD Tile & Stone Inc. He was a gifted athlete, top high school baseball prospect and in 1976, helped lead his broomball team to win the title in the World Broomball Championships. The CD Tile & Stone team has provided legendary sponsorship at the MBEX member events and as a result of Jeff’s hard work and dedication, CD Tile & Stone has emerged as one of the largest commercial tile companies in the upper Midwest. Our deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

Upcoming projects/leads: mbex.org

posted on 11.25.2020

The staff of the Minnesota Builders Exchange takes great pride in concise reporting within the industry. However, please keep in mind that not every project reported on at the exchange will be physically or electronically available on the first report date. Many members have noticed, “not available in plan room” as the bin for some projects. While the project was not received at MBEX on the original report date, take a moment to click on the project title and look at the notes within the details page. The notes will clarify the actions taken by our Plans in Progress reporter in regards to obtaining the plans/specs. Projects not available in the plan room on first report dates may give you a heads up on what’s coming to MBEX soon, or represent project leads…projects that won’t be available at MBEX, but offer you enough information to track down the project on your own.
