Building Insider Magazine
The BIA’s magazine Building Insider is published 7 times a year, with 6 regular issues and 1 special edition. It is the only local publication providing an in-depth guide to our local homebuilding industry. The magazine provides news and information targeted to the wide variety of building-related professions of our members.
The magazine’s special issue features a wrap-up the BIA’s two signature events, the Parade of Homes and the Preview Party. We think you will agree, these two important events deserve the extra recognition. There will be limited advertising opportunities in this issue, so make sure you book your ad early.
Building Insider is mailed to all current BIA members as well as to 500 top producing Realtors in the greater Columbus area.
Compass Homes’ guided and personalized building experience is elevated by a new design studio that turns product selection into a creative, retail-style experience.
EMH&T, a BIA Hall of Fame inductee, is a solution-oriented partner as well-known for successful client partnerships as they are for award-winning projects.
Parkfield Insulation, central Ohio’s largest privately-owned insulation company, supplies eco-friendly products that can save homeowners as much as 40 percent on their utility costs.
