BM Builders

BM Builders was founded as a partnership of two construction professionals with almost 20 years of experience in the field, who between them had overseen the construction of over 800 residential units and 1 50,000 square feet of Retail and Commercial space – projects cumulatively worth over $250 million. They both loved the industry and had long dreamed of creating of their own firm, a goal which finally came to fruition in 2009.

Mostafa Sobhi and John Ruud have brought their combined experience in field operations, business process management and quality control, as well as an extensive network of Owners, Designers, Engineers and Subcontractors, to BM Builders. We pride ourselves on being a valuable business partner for our clients and we look forward to the opportunity to help make your project a success!
