The Builders Exchange is a full-service trade association serving the commercial construction industry. We are a valuable liaison between project owners and plan issuers and the construction companies, which compete to build or renovate their commercial properties.

Serving construction affiliates of all sizes, “the BX” provide a wide range of services, from finding and tracking current construction projects to safety and business training. Our programs and services save members money through special pricing on everyday business costs from office supplies and gasoline to larger expenses like Workers Compensation premiums.

The BX is proud to be the best, most comprehensive source of information in the commercial construction industry. Contact us today to learn more about our organization and to begin enjoying the benefits of your BX membership.

First and foremost, the goal of the organization is to help members locate, research, bid and land projects.

Our online project reporting service tracks more than 14,000 jobs annually for the entire state of Ohio, as well as neighboring areas of Michigan, Indiana and Kentucky. Our members have 24-hour access, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to our physical planroom in the BX headquarters. In addition, our online planroom makes projects available at any time right from your home or office.

Real-time information provided by both the online and onsite planrooms includes: pre-bid project leads, out-for-bid projects, bidders lists, apparent low bidders, and awarded contracts, along with plans, specs and addendums.

Builders Exchange Members also receive a daily 5 a.m. email alert listing all new projects for that day, as well as updates to existing projects.


In the commercial construction industry, successfully researching, bidding and landing projects are paramount. Through tools offered by the Builders Exchange, your company has access to real-time project postings through both our physical and online planrooms.
