Who is the American Institute of Building Design?

Today, the AIBD represents professional and associate members in 46 states and throughout Canada and abroad.

Benefits to Homeowners and Builders

Building a home incurs the greatest financial burden most people will face in a lifetime and few envision how complex the process is until they are tangled in a jungle of restrictive covenant, building codes, zoning ordinances, design options, vendor and contractor choices and so on. Yet, most states do not have a licensing requirement for residential building designers. When a new home or addition is in your future, a specialist in the discipline of residential design is your best choice to guide you through the design/building experience. Accordingly, it makes sense to secure design services from a qualified experienced source - a professional member of the American Institute of Building Design.
