Awards of Excellence Banquet


Thanks to all of those who came out for the banquet this year. Congrats to all the talented companies who received awards and recognition.

Maleno Builders Recognized


Congrats on the 2018 Award of Excellence for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability. 

Maleno Builders, Inc. was recognized on November 10 for construction practices that keep their homeowners comfortable all-year-round and reduce energy expenses by hundreds of dollars every year. 

The award-winning home, located in North East, Pa., features high-efficiency lighting, advanced insulation and construction practices that prevent air from escaping to the outdoors. 

“We are proud to recognize Maleno Builders for demonstrating that it can be cost effective to build homes that reduce energy use,” said Bob Himes, Executive Officer of the Builder’s Association of Northwest Pennsylvania. “Plus, the home is beautiful. It’s a great example of smart craftsmanship.”

PBA Announcement

The PBA is excited to introduce a new business planning opportunity in which they hope you might participate. Small Business Growth Partners is a cutting-edge small business growth firm referred to us by our colleagues in other state builder associations. Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and Virginia have already experienced great success with Growth Partners. We view this as an ideal occasion for you to explore improving your business. Growth Partners specializes in helping builders, remodelers and contractors develop better businesses. They only work with HBA members, and are completely private (meaning, they do not work with the general public, and PBA members will be the only business owners in Pennsylvania to which they offer their services. Period). This exclusive expertise is what attracted me to their services. They are from our industry and respect the professionalism that HBA membership entails.
To test their service here in Pennsylvania, the first 50 member-companies who express interest can have a Business Diagnostic Plan of Actions (BPA) done at no cost to the participant.
