BIAW. Homes start here. We are the people who build, remodel and maintain homes. We create jobs, economic opportunity and strong communities. As one of the largest home building associations in America, BIAW champions the rights of our members and fights for affordable homeownership at all levels of government. We provide award-winning education that builds and supports a strong workforce in the trades. Our relationships with community leaders foster housing opportunities for everyone.

We strengthen our members by offering employee health care plans and the state’s largest, longest-operating Retro (Retrospective Rating) safety incentive program (ROII). We give a voice to thousands of builders, remodelers, skilled trades professionals and their associates who help Washington families enjoy the American dream of owning a home.
