We’re all about community here at Rochester Area Builders.
As an organization of residential builders, remodelers, and developers dedicated towards advancing the building industry across Rochester, MN, and greater Southeast Minnesota, we understand the importance of working with the community and becoming an authority for members of the public.
Rochester Area Builders has teamed up with a variety of local community organizations and offers an assortment of educational classes designed to enrich public knowledge. Here’s a brief overview of our impact across the great state of Minnesota:
Rochester Area Builders is proud to serve as a powerful and valuable resource and advocate for the building industry in Rochester, MN, and across Southeastern Minnesota.
Our member roster, made up of commercial and residential builders and associated businesses, is dedicated towards providing the community with the information they need to make smart home or commercial construction decisions.

- Student Empowerment: Our members are proud to team up with a variety of colleges, including Riverland Community College and the Rochester Community and Technical College, for carpentry programs. Additionally, we offer post-secondary scholarships for graduating high school seniors who are interested in a construction-related field.
- Playhouse Construction: Each year, we partner with Family Service Rochester to craft and build custom playhouses that are raffled off in support of the organization. We’re proud to support Family Service Rochester since they are a strong aspect of the local community through meals and counseling services, among other assistance. We also work with other local organizations on community construction projects to benefit the local population. In the past, we’ve collaborated with The Women’s Shelter and Bear Creek Services.
- Continuing Education: Rochester Area Builders offers continuing education classes for residential builders and building officials who are interested in high-quality and certified classes. Every one of our courses are submitted to state authorities and are always taught by professional instructions with pertinent qualifications. Our fee covers it all, from food to resource materials for students to learn from.
- Public Events: Public events are an exciting way for the community to learn more about the building industry and become engaged. In early February, our Home Show is a popular event for those interested in checking out the latest in-home design and build strategies. Come April, we host Studs, Struts & Stilettos, a popular fashion show that also supports Habitat for Humanity, and we also preview homes that are still under construction to members of the public through our Spring Showcase of Homes. We run the same event during September for the fall season.
