About Us

Housing Industry Association (HIA) is the official body of Australia’s home building industry.
As the only national industry association for Australian building professionals, we represent the interests of the housing industry at regional and national levels. Our extensive membership program supports residential builders, trade contractors, developers, design professionals, kitchen and bathroom specialists, manufacturers and suppliers. We have been supporting the Australian home building industry for more than 60 years.
HIA offers home building industry-specific services that arm members with the right information, and helps protect employees and businesses. We also offer programs and products to help you professionally.

HIA Workplace Services helps HIA members cut through the minefield of changing regulations and laws common to the building industry. Our team of advisers can talk you through the steps you need to take – at no additional cost to your membership.
