Celebrating 40 years of Aarow Building

Mark Wille and Audree Grubesic, hosts of Offsite Dirt check in with Jake Bruton, the Chief Builder at Aarow Buildings, a unique and innovative company based in Missouri.

Jake Bruton, the second-generation owner of Aarow Buildings, he shares that the company has been in business for 40 years and operates as a renovation and new home company in Columbia, Missouri, with an additional office in the Kansas City market for high-performance new construction.

One of the company's distinguishing factors is its effective planning and supervision. They have implemented systems and processes, such as employee handbooks and checklists, to ensure consistency and quality. Team members are trained to follow these procedures, and regular inspections are conducted to maintain high standards. Communication is also vital, with platforms like Slack used to keep everyone informed and aligned.

The interview highlights the significance of communication in fostering productivity and accountability within the company. Sharing videos and photos internally serves as an additional level of quality control and showcases their work, motivating team members to perform their tasks effectively.

Shifting focus to net-zero houses, Jake explains that they prioritize building durable, efficient, low-load homes that offer comfort and promote the well-being of clients. While they may not possess the same level of expertise as sustainability-focused markets, they strive to utilize readily available materials and methods. Close collaboration with other industry professionals helps them stay updated on the latest practices and technologies.
