Before Hurricane Harvey, Texas was experiencing a critical shortage of construction trades professionals. In an effort to expedite the matching of builders, developers and remodelers to skilled tradespeople, the Texas Association of Builders (TAB) has launched Builders2Trades (B2T). This platform allows members to search for craftsmen by trade who are working in or are willing to relocate to the builder's area.
TAB worked with MultiView, the National Association of Home Builders, the Texas Workforce Commission, and the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, to name a few, on populating the site with the names and contact information of tradespeople. The site will be updated daily as new tradespeople are added to the list. All entries are responsible for entering their information correctly and performing their own due diligence when utilizing the site.

Suppliers: Texas also has an immediate need for building products and services. If you would like to add your company's name to the B2T Products/Services search that builders and trades professionals will use to find suppliers in their areas, click here.
