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

I love how everyone at MBEX is both personable on the phone and in person at the exchange. The service is impeccable and the knowledge of the staff and how everything is run is wonderful. 


— Malia Oesterreich, R M S Rentals

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

Part of being in business and developing a relationship is getting to know people outside of work... There are so many of our customers that also use this resource, so it's a good chance to be able to connect with them. 


— Joel Almquist, Scaffold Service

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.
