About Us


Experience Matters
Tom Hendrickson
Tom is the owner and President of Erotas Building Corporation and has been involved with Erotas since 1995. Tom was with a large commercial construction company in the early 1980’s where he started his love for construction. In 1997 Tom and his wife contacted Erotas Building Corporation to build his own home and became so passionate about the residential building process, he was onsite daily and “helped” during the construction phase. He was so impressed with the quality and craftsmanship that was put into his home he went to work for Erotas Building Corporation the following year. Tom has done everything from digging trenches to supervising projects and continues to expand is custom home building knowledge while completing multiple projects.

Tom’s experience having sat on both sides of the table, first as a client and now as a contractor,
gives him first-hand knowledge of what’s important to create a quality product which Erotas Building Corporation is known for.

Tom’s goals for the company are to continue to build architecturally designed homes as well as create processes and products that increase efficiency, provide faster and effective communication for all involved while providing a joyful and “stress free” client experience.

Tom’s excitement for the housing industry prompted him and two partners to develop Trias Development in 2004 with a belief that there is a place in the Twin Cities for luxury residential multi-family developments. Their first project was a four-unit condo on Mt. Curve in Minneapolis and Tom continues to seek out new sites to bring luxury living to MN clients.
