Industry Partners

Building Designers Australia wishes to formally recognise the major industry partners that provide the necessary support to enable BDA to function as an independent entity within the Australian Building Design Community.

The Joint Venture Partner (JVP) program has been developed to give a number of major industry partners an opportunity to have a high level of recognition and input into BDA, we would like to thank all those companies that have participated in the JVP program and would welcome inquires from any looking to be involved.

Our next level of sponsor involvement sits between JVP and the basic Corporate Membership (the full list of Corporate Members is displayed below); this level is Corporate Partner which again provides partnership recognition and an involvement in many facets of interaction with the BDA members.

As these Industry Partners are then the supporters of BDA we encourage our members and all other industry members who support the actions of the BDA to actively support these companies and use their products and services where appropriate.
