Builders Commonwealth Cooperative Association is a custom design/build commercial and residential general contractor and custom millwork/cabinet fabricator. We specialize in thoughtful design. Our work includes the renovation and construction of both business and custom residential buildings, custom kitchens and baths, custom home interiors, timber frame home construction, custom millwork, and exquisite custom furniture.
Back in the early 1970s, a few members of the Whole Foods Co-op banded together to rebuild a friend’s fire-damaged home. Restoring that home planted the seed for what would become Builders Commonwealth. Builders Commonwealth was established in 1973 by a group of dedicated individuals who devoted their attention to quality design and construction. In 1978, the partners signed articles of incorporation establishing Builders Commonwealth Cooperative Association, the Northlands largest design/build construction cooperative.
During the last 30 years, Builders Commonwealth has built a reputation for excellence in commercial and new home design and construction, renovation, restoration, custom cabinets, custom millwork, and custom fine furniture.
Builders Commonwealth is based in Duluth, Minnesota and principally provides construction services in a market area extending up the north shore of Lake Superior, and through northern Minnesota and northern Wisconsin.
The Members of Builders Commonwealth take great pride in their craft and strive for durable and artistic solutions for each project. Our renovation and restoration work is a delicate balance between preservation and functional needs. We blend traditional and innovative materials with an energy-efficient construction, customized to an owner’s taste and budget.
Builders Commonwealth has been a worker-owned cooperative since 1973.
