Our History

AMBE LTD. was started in 1988 by Rick Grobovsky, a tough advocate for the client, in the tough world of construction. As the world has evolved, so has AMBE LTD., and we continue to carry on that original principal of representation and advocacy for our clients.

AMBE LTD. has grown from a one-person independent consultant to a group that works on hundreds of projects a year, in the Twin Cities metro area, throughout the five-state area, and across the United States.

Our initial focus was on roofing, but through the course of time, we have evolved and expanded into a complete building envelope consulting company, fully capable to address all 6 sides of the building (top, all four sides, and the bottom).

When Rick retired in 2019, Wendell Finken became the Owner, while keeping the position of President and Senior Consultant.

Wendell came to AMBE LTD. in 2001 with a background in roofing and project management for a contractor. After working on numerous AMBE LTD. projects as a Project Manager Rick saw it as a good fit for his expanding company. Over time we have grown to a group of 7 building experts and added an office staff.

The team at AMBE LTD. has completed hundreds of Roof Replacements, Wall Restorations, and Waterproofing projects in the Twin Cities every year, and have completed projects in almost all 50 states (including Hawaii and Puerto Rico). As well and yearly surveys, pre-purchase (PCA) reports, and leak investigations.

Our primary focus has been working for Commercial Property Management and Owners, but we also commonly work for Architects, General Contractors, and Publicly Owned Properties.

Throughout our growth, turnover, and changes we have kept our one guiding principle, represent the Owner the way you would want to be represented if it was your building.

Our success has enabled us to give back, and we've made philanthropy a core component of our operations. Learn more about our philanthropic efforts here.
