Renowned green home builder ventures into commercial industry

Jan. 18, 2016

Hibbs Homes, a nationally renowned residential construction company in St Louis, has ventured into the commercial building industry with the launch of Hibbs General Contracting.

The new company will focus on light commercial construction, steel building construction and performing energy efficient renovations and retrofits to existing commercial buildings, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The team has previously collaborated on projects of national significance in including Active House USA and Proud Green Home of St. Louis.

Hibbs General Contracting will cover the Missouri and Southern Illinois regions.

The company will offer traditional wood frame and structural insulated panel (SIP) construction for renovations and new commercial construction projects. Additionally, Hibbs General Contracting has become the exclusive partner of Capital Steel Industries in the St. Louis and Southern Illinois area, offering pre-engineered steel buildings, including church and school buildings, agricultural facilities, airplane hangars, warehouse space, retail spaces and more.

Long considered the region’s leading expert in high-performance green home builders, Hibbs will put a special focus on green building practices for commercial construction.

“Experts believe that the building sector is the largest contributor to U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Nearly 75 percent of commercial buildings are 20 years or older and would benefit from tremendously from retrofitting renovations to reduce their emissions and energy usage,” said Matt Belcher, vice president of Hibbs General Contracting.

Hibbs General Contracting will offer:

  • Commercial retrofitting services
  • Energy efficient steel building options, and
  • High-performance building practices in construction projects
  • Energy efficient/resilient engineered building envelope construction services.
