About HBRE

HBRE provides design-build services catering primarily to the remodeling needs of homeowners throughout the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

Home remodeling and construction can be both intimidating and challenging. If you are a homeowner, know that we are prepared to lead you through the experience, navigating your project’s custom twists and turns – together. Rest assured that while you may be new to home building and remodeling, we are not. Having successfully completed several hundred projects, HBRE has compiled a substantial amount of design-build remodel experience over the years. We are continuously striving to refine our craft, improve our processes, and optimize our customer value proposition. Additionally, it is our constant desire to do well by the customers who trust us with their homes and, in part, lives. After all, the homes we live in can impact our individual, family, and financial well-being for many years to come. We know this, see it in our own lives and homes and, as such, take our responsibilities seriously.

HBRE’s simple objectives as a company are to be transparent, honest, available, accountable, and profitable. We desire to surround ourselves with customers, employees, suppliers, and subcontractors who share in these values. If you foresee yourself in any one of these partner roles and desire to talk about it further, please let us know. Be aware that to either work with or for HBRE is to engage in a partnership. Our relationship begins as soon as you contact us and, if we mutually agree to partner, we hope to build upon it every day thereafter.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Process.

Home remodeling is complicated. Although the work is very familiar, the circumstances are always new. By nature, all projects are custom. Your design preferences, your priorities, your budget, your home…everything is unique to you.

HBRE’s objective is that, together, we find satisfaction in both the results and each step along the way. So, amid the complexity and custom requirements, we follow a simple process:

In-Home Consultation

The discussions have to start at some point so, we might as well meet at the job site (your home). We’ll discuss what it is you want to accomplish. HBRE will get a chance to learn a little about you. You’ll get a chance to learn a little about us.

HBRE creates a price offer to design your project based upon what we have discussed. The larger the project, the more time we will spend together during the Design Engagement discussing concepts, creating drawings, and making decisions. 

Design Contract

Design Engagement

We measure the existing spaces and create the drawings. Then we discuss concepts and layouts. Once we land on a concept layout that you love we further focus on the materials, fixtures and finishes (i.e. selections) that will fill the spaces.

At the end of Design Engagement you are presented with a proposal package consisting of an Estimate, Drawings and the Estimate-referencing Allowance-based bids gathered from suppliers and subcontractors. If the offer is acceptable, we move to contract.

Build Contract

Project Planning

Once you have formally agreed to the contract we spend the following few weeks to place material orders, line-up subcontractors and build-out the job schedule. The availability of the materials and people required to complete the job determines the job schedule.

This is the construction phase where we tear it down as necessary and then build it backup anew. We demo. We build. We coordinate. As we progress, your remodel design comes to life before our eyes.
