From supply chain challenges and increased material costs to labor shortages and an unpredictable economy, the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis and its members worked diligently to adapt to an everchanging world. We have battled through many challenges and hardships, but we have also celebrated great victories and accomplishments including:


This year marked the 100th year of BAGI, a major milestone that came with plenty of celebration. For 100 years, we have been fulfilling our mission of promoting new-home construction throughout Greater Indianapolis, fighting for change through advocacy, and providing opportunities to those within the industry that encourage new business and success.


Over 13,500 tickets were sold during the 2022 First Internet Bank Home-A-Rama, making it one of the most attended shows to date. Aside from showcasing the best in custom homebuilding from our members, we were able to highlight Westfield’s impressive Chatham Hills neighborhood for the third and final time.
