The Building & Realty Institute of Westchester and The Mid-Hudson Region

Builder & Remodeler Councils

Homebuilders Advisory Council of Northern Westchester,
Putnam and Dutchess Counties (HBAC)

There are many issues affecting homebuilders and developers in the Westchester and Mid-Hudson Region. The Homebuilders Advisory Council, in conjunction with the Builders Institute (BI), its base organization, addresses those topics.

Whether it’s dealing with local, state or county governments, relationships with sub-contractors, suppliers and/or professionals, or the complicated aspects industry members face in our region, the HBAC consistently works for its membership.

The HBAC, in coordination with the BI, focuses on land-use, planning, building codes and dealings with state regulatory agencies.

Industry members involved in the building of homes, apartments or condominiums, or the sub-division of land in Putnam, Northern Westchester and Dutchess, look toward the HBAC.

Commercial Builders Advisory Council (CBAC)

Commercial developers/builders and property owners/managers face a series of complex topics. The CBAC helps analyze those issues. It is your voice. Membership in the CBAC entitles industry representatives to emphasize their concerns on those matters. Whether the issues are from a development or management perspective, the CBAC – in conjunction with its parent organization – the Builders Institute (BI)/Building and Realty Institute (BRI) – is there for industry members.

The CBAC specializes in land-use, building codes and dealings with state regulatory agencies. The association also monitors developments on finance and credit topics, environmental issues, taxes and building security.

Remodelers Advisory Council (RAC)

RAC is comprised of businesses involved in the rehab, remodeling, redesign and renovation of single family homes, co-ops, condos and apartment buildings. The RAC focuses on building codes, solar energy regulations, HVAC, engineering and other issues pertinent to the remodeling industry.
