OUR HISTORY: The North Peninsula Home Builders Association was formed by a group of dedicated building professionals who began organizing in the early 1970’s. In May of 1976 this group of building and trade professionals received its Charter from the National Association of Home Builders and was recognized by the Building Industry Association of Washington.
These men and women were dedicated to the industry and to the community they live and work in. Through the years, this same degree of professional dedication has prevailed and is encouraged by members.
In 2001 members felt the existing name limited the scope of the association and so with the consent of the membership, changed its name to North Peninsula Building Association (NPBA). The name change recognizes all aspects of the building trades whether residential or commercial builder/remodeler, trade professional or businesses that support the building industry.
As the association grew, NPBA began to expand its presence in the community. In 1996 the Building, Remodeling and Energy EXPO became the first premier program offered to members and the industry. Creating a legacy for the building industry was recognized as essential to instill the value of building to generations to come to that end, the Future Builders Program was created in 1999. The Future Builders Program introduces younger generations to the building trades from the ground up. Through the NPBA Future Builders Charitable Organization, grants and scholarships are awarded to students wishing to pursue a career in building related trades.
The North Peninsula Building Association in 2006 collaborated with several local agencies, jurisdictions and individuals to create Built Green of Clallam County. The program provides training and education to the building community and offers a certification program for residential and commercial building. BGCC also provides educational opportunities for the public through various community outreach events during the year.
Today, the NPBA is over 175 members strong. The organization’s members are committed to fulfilling the mission of advocating constant improvement of building and business practices to provide quality construction in our community.
