A large portion of our annual revenue is generated from being a part of construction teams on a steady stream of institutional projects. From remodeling and upgrades on school additions to multi-million dollar masonry contracts on large schools, healthcare facilities, and courthouses, B & D has always remained focused on the institutional marketplace.
While we cut our teeth on the government funded institutional and municipal work, B & D has also cultivated a steady stream of business working on commercial jobs throughout the area for the private sector. Frequently these projects are the most rewarding as these structures are often the signature goal of an ambitious and successful business owner. Sometimes it’s a modest storefront to boldly rebrand a retailer, or an impressive office building built to stand for multi-generations of an entrepreneur’s vision.
B & D Associates has been a partner on construction teams building a variety of municipal projects ranging from creative streetscape designs centered on enhancing a city’s personality, to libraries, and city hall structures throughout the twin cities. In addition, we were proud to have been the anchor masonry contractor for the construction of the Minnesota Twins Ballpark - Target Field.
The founders of B & D Associates, Inc. as well as their key officers are all products of previous generations of family run contracting businesses. Having witnessed the long hours, sacrifices, and bumps in the road their family members endured years ago, we are aware of the commitment required to ensure our part in the construction process is a success for our crews, our company, and our clients.
Bill and Dick’s parents managed their own masonry business for nearly four decades. Along the way they were always actively involved in the local and national industry associations culminating with their father being inducted into the Mason Contractors Association of America – Masonry Hall of Fame.
So, it’s not surprising that when Bill and Dick started their own business, they followed the lead of their parents and have been steady volunteers on the boards and committees of many industry groups, associations, and as management trustees on various union fringe fund boards. They are making a conscious effort to not only earn a living in the industry, but to give back by being stewards of the industry so that it continues to thrive and can provide a quality career choice for generations that follow.
THE OWNERS ARE ALWAYS INVOLVED. CALL THE BROTHERS BILL & DICK ANYTIME.
When a client entrusts B & D Associates, Inc. with the responsibility of working on their project, regardless of the size of the project, the client can rest assured that the owners of B & D are keenly involved in the project.
Bill Dentinger oversees all construction operations and is involved in all key decisions related to ensuring a successful construction experience for our clients.
Similarly, Dick Dentinger is also a hands-on owner who manages the day to day administrative side of the business and is constantly working to keep the structure of our business primed to answer the needs of our customer base.
