We Serve Northeast Ohio

The North Coast Building Industry Association (NCBIA) serves Erie, Huron and Lorain Counties. NCBIA members have been an integral part of the growth and economic development of the communities we serve since 1944. NCBIA was founded as a not-for-profit local affiliate of the Ohio Home Builders Association (OHBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) representing more than 275 builders and other businesses directly related to the home building industry. Our members are builders, remodelers, tradesmen and associated professions representing the collective interests of the residential construction industry.

Our Mission

The North Coast Building Industry Association is
dedicated to the advancement of the building industry,
its members, and the communities it serves.
