Blue Ribbon Builders Process - Blue Ribbon Builders

Our Process


Blue Ribbon Builders cares about the project, the process, and the results just as much as our clients do.

Blue Ribbon provides full-service building backed by our mastery of the nuances of building in complex terrain for the benefit of both clients and architects. We know mountain construction — we know how to maximize our clients’ enjoyment of the indoor and outdoor opportunities to relax and play. Ultimately, we bring specific expertise to the table — what we offer is peace of mind.

Blue Ribbon’s services are comprehensive, and extend far beyond just construction — from walking undeveloped lots in pre-construction to managing long term property maintenance, our partners appreciate the detailed, accurate cost estimates and scheduling services unique to Blue Ribbon Builders.



Long before the construction process starts, Blue Ribbon Builders gives thoughtful attention to both the big picture and the small, but critical, details. From the beginning, our process integrates collaboration, creativity, and strategic planning.

The greatest successes are built on the foundation of a strong collaborative approach. Blue Ribbon Builders can help guide you through the pros and cons of the initial teambuilding decisions, connecting you with trusted real estate brokers, architects, interior designers, and assisting with the selection process.

It starts with a vision. The Design stage begins a meaningful, engaged partnership with the architectural team. Blue Ribbon provides materials samples, real life tangible mockups, and collaborates on details to offer creative cost-efficient, field-tested, solutions.

Strategic Budgeting collaboratively integrates real-world budgets into the design process. Giving the design team valuable feedback at critical milestones keeps the project on budget. Lifecycle costs are evaluated to ensure systems are cost-conscious, maintainable, and energy-efficient while enhancing the beauty, health, and comfort of the home.

Strategic Scheduling integrates design, permitting, and construction scheduling. Aspects of construction like site grading and utility installation can be expedited for seasonal weather windows. Details for specialty items with long lead time can be finalized early to facilitate early ordering. Offsite construction can compress overall project timelines.

This is the heart and foundation of what Blue Ribbon Builders does. Building is in our name — but most importantly, it’s our passion. The homes we create for our clients are the culmination of our decades of expertise, unwavering dedication to the details, skillful touch, true creative vision, and an overall commitment to superior builds.

Our team delivers value throughout the construction process. From brand new builds to exciting remodels, Blue Ribbon Builders goes all-in for every project, and everyone from our hardworking project managers to skilled carpenters plays a key role in bringing your dream home to life.

Blue Ribbon’s local employee housing, Big Sky based operations, and a full-time onsite superintendent mean your project gets the local-based attention it deserves. With 45+ years in business as a local leader, we’re proud to say this is our home, too, and we work hard to do right by our neighbors.

In-house carpentry is our specialty. For decades, we’ve cultivated a culture that understands and respects true artisanship. Blue Ribbon’s managers draw from real-life experience in the field. And because we self-perform the work rather than outsourcing, your project will benefit from higher quality craftsmanship, a dependable workforce, and a shorter timeline.

We create an incredible experience for our clients throughout the build and deliver exceptional results. Blue Ribbon guarantees clear, transparent communication and a company-wide dedication to quality, backed by a team of individuals that take pride in our work. With our detailed Internal Quality Control Inspection and Testing Program, you can be sure that every detail of your project, down to the last finishing detail, is done well and built to last.
