Building Renewal






Adam Powers – Project Manager



First and foremost, thank you for your interest in Building Renewal, Inc.  My name is Adam Powers, and if you decide to complete a project with Building Renewal, I will be your Project Manager.  I am your primary contact from the beginning of the build phase, through the final inspection and cleaning of your home. 

Born in Minnesota, I was raised with parents and close family working throughout the construction industry.  I enjoy the outdoors and strive to uphold the “Minnesota Nice” stereotype.  With a degree in Accounting, I quickly learned that sitting in an office all day was not for me.  I have been working in the customer service industry for 15+ years.  Couple that experience with 8 years of project management experience and you can rest assured that your project is in the hands of a professional.

You may have a friend or family member who has experienced a “Bad Contractor”.  Remodeling can be a stressful endeavor, but I believe that the right contractor can make all the difference.  I use my experience working with clients, sub-contractors, tradesman, and suppliers to facilitate a high-quality finished product, while maintaining a pleasant experience for the client.  I want every customer to feel as comfortable as possible throughout the process and I promise to treat your home with the care that I treat my own.  If you have any questions, Greg or I would be happy to answer them for you.

Again, Thank You for your interest in Building Renewal.  I hope to work with you in the near future.
