Welcome to your Building Industry Association


   Anne Fadullon

Our mission is to advocate for and expand the residential building industry in Philadelphia. 

About the BIA of Philadelphia

Since it was established in 1937, the Building Industry Association of Philadelphia has built a network of professionals to promote residential construction in Philadelphia, including multi-family and mixed use development. Our membership has grown to encompass the whole range of industry specialists – builders, real estate developers, subcontractors, designers, finance experts, brokers, product manufacturers, and others. For more than 78 years, we have joined forces to share ideas and create opportunities that will have a positive impact on the city’s housing market.
