The Builders Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh (BAMP) is one of the oldest home builder associations in the country. Founded in 1938 by a group of Pittsburgh area home builders as the Home Builders Association of Allegheny County, it has grown to serve the home building and related industries throughout the metropolitan Pittsburgh region. BAMP was a founding member of a group of local area home builder associations that established the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in 1942 and the Pennsylvania Builders Association (PBA) in 1952. BAMP has an active NAHB Remodeler’s Council that focuses on improving the profession of remodeling and education of home improvement contractors. With an eye to its future, BAMP sponsors NAHB Student Chapter organizations in eight local secondary-level career training centers throughout its service territory.
In total, BAMP represents nearly 600 small businesses who strive to improve housing affordability, availability and choice.
