Chartered in 1962, the Home Builders Association was formed to represent the building industry in both Okaloosa and Walton Counties.  The name was later changed to the Building Industry Association of Okaloosa-Walton Counties, or BIAOW, to represent both residential and commercial companies in our area.

BIAOW is comprised of companies and individuals representing the construction industry.  Our organization empowers our members through our governmental affairs efforts not only locally but through our state organization, FHBA, but also nationally through the NAHB.

Our organization meets monthly, whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or Happy Hour, networking is a key component of our group.  We also hold many larger events throughout the year; Cornhole, Golf, Sporting Clay, Car Show and more.

We’re here for you…here to help grow your business, provide education, and support all in the building industry.
