This is a business organization which provides a depository for plans from architects, engineers and governmental agencies. Contractors and material suppliers can view plans in our plan room or on our website and prepare quotations for construction contracts. We cover a wide range of projects such as schools, banks, offices, store buildings, churches, hospitals, bridges, roads, and many other types of construction. We maintain up-to-date lists of member contractors and suppliers and help to set some basic guidelines for sub-contractor and contractor relationships with a code of ethics. The Mankato Builders Exchange is a vital link between owner, architect, engineer, material manufacturer, dealer and contractor to promote and assist in any way possible.

We publish an online Bulletin, listing plans on file with the Exchange. Also included is information about addendums and any updates. This publication is available online to all members.

Our website includes information about the Mankato Builder’s Exchange such as member listings by CSI divisions, news of upcoming events, and the Bulletin. Advertising space is also offered on our website.
