In 1922, the Indianapolis Home Builders was formed. It is possible that this group is the oldest organized builder group in the United States. On February 22, 1940, the group drafted its first By-laws. The original charter from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) was issued to the Indianapolis Home Builders; this was later transferred to the Marion County Residential Builders Association in 1944. In 1969, the name was changed to the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis (BAGI) to reflect the building activity going on outside of Marion County. As early as 1926, a show home was built for public viewing by the Association through the cooperative efforts of its membership. The first Parade of Homes was held in 1947 and the first New Home Preview was held in 1956. In 1963 the Association presented its first Home-A-Rama. Over 500 members strong, The Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis today exists so that members of the residential construction industry and related businesses can conduct their business efficiently and ethically to provide the community with reliable, safe, affordable residential construction accomplished by competent professionals in the industry. The charter jurisdiction of BAGI includes: Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Madison, Marion, Morgan and Shelby counties. On January 1, 2000, all BAGI builders and remodelers agreed to adhere to the Quality Assurance Builder Standards. Divided into construction phases, the Standards provide new homebuyers and remodeling customers a written set of standards addressing prevalent issues that arise. The Standards are a series of performance measurements builders and customers can use to communicate and understand each other’s expectations. Members of the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis are also members of the Indiana Builders Association and the National Association of Home Builders. If you are interested in joining BAGI please call the office at 317-236-6330; or email Barbara Zoderer, Director of Membership and Events, at firstname.lastname@example.org

Students in Purdue's interior design program develop the analytical skills and gain the experience to plan commercial, institutional, healthcare, retail, and residential interiors. This program aims to develop students as creative designers who can formulate, propose, and execute creative design solutions for the physical, social, and psychological needs of a changing society influenced by rapid changes in technology. Purdue's interior design program is CIDA (Council for Interior Design Accreditation) accredited and gives students a sound background in understanding the design process , from research and analysis of the client's goals and requirements, to the formulation of preliminary space plans and two and three dimensional design concept studies and sketches that integrate the client's program needs and are based on knowledge of the principles of interior design and theories of human behavior. This process is refined in the program through design presentations, and construction documents necessary to implement solutions. Students are also formed into teams for approaching design solutions in cooperative groups. Coursework encompasses creative exploration, professional preparation, technical information, and skills with emphases on interior construction, building systems, codes, equipment, and components as well as accessibility, environmental, and sustainability strategies. Introductory courses begin with drawing, design, and drafting, and are followed by a sequential series of studio classes on increasingly complex projects. Students learn rapid sketching techniques, model making, computer-aided design, lighting design, presentation techniques, and construction documents necessary to implement solutions. Courses in art and architectural history, textiles, building construction, and professional practice are complemented by field trips and presentations by practicing designers. Internship and co-op opportunities prepare students to enter this challenging profession. Graduates find employment opportunities in architectural and interior design firms as well as in other design positions focusing on lighting, kitchens and baths, facilities planning, or the furniture industry.
