Level MB Troy Ohio

About Us

Level Master Builders

The name Level Master Builders originates from ancient building practices where a “Master Builder” managed and performed all aspects of the construction process. This individual was a complete professional, designer, and tradesman.

This aligns with Level MB’s approach to the construction process as a true, architect driven design build company. One that is reinforced by a combined 50 years’ of experience in commercial construction. Our goal is to ultimately build meaningful relationships, buildings, and communities by laying a strong foundation.

“According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 3:10-11
