Building with traditional values is providing exceptional services that show care and concern for our customers who are also our neighbors.

  • Our Experience

    Barton Southwest Builder’s Inc. has over 20 years of experience building on tribal lands and rural areas including the Navajo Nation. With over 25,000 square miles of reservation, the Navajo Nation’s rural environment creates challenges for construction projects that can be difficult to maneuver. Barton Southwest Builder’s Inc. is a company that has been built on meeting these challenges and completing
    projects with high standards of workmanship and efficiency required by the customer and the environment they are building in.

    BSBI’s extensive experience provides exceptional understanding of rural reservation conditions where lack of infrastructure, road conditions, lack of water, and difficult working conditions affect productivity and cost of building. Our ability to assess the landscape in which we are building and provide an accurate estimate of costs increases efficiency of the project and value to the owner. We are keen to the indirect costs of building in rural environments and we have forged valuable supplier relationships that allow our company to complete projects in a timely and efficient manner.

  • Our Partnerships

    Barton Southwest Builders Inc. is a community oriented company, we are 100% Dine (Navajo) owned and operated and we believe in building communities in Indian Country.

Our values as a company include finding ways to increase the value of the projects we complete as far as we can within the local community.
