The Northern Virginia Building Industry Association is committed to serving the housing industry in the Northern Virginia area. NVBIA was formed to create an economic and political climate within which the building industry is able to effectively meet the demand for affordable, attractive, safe, well-planned and environmentally sensitive residential and business communities.
The Association was founded in 1936 by eight Arlington County Builders. Today, the NVBIA has expanded its membership and is now composed of five chapters: Fauquier, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William and Urban, which represents Arlington and Alexandria.
NVBIA’s primary mission is to represent the interest of its members at all levels of government. Recent important accomplishments include helping to defeat a proposed “fire prevention sprinkler” requirement for new homes and successfully working to pass a law designed to defer collection or acceptance of a cash proffer by a locality until after final inspection and before the property has been issued any certificate of occupancy. One of our most important ongoing projects in representing the industry is the effort, in conjunction with other HBAs, to impact the final EPA rules on drainage into the Chesapeake Bay.
