Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., with a second office in Conyers, Ga., BIA Southeast serves a nine-state region: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Southeastern Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Our mission is to promote brick as the preferred building material for home and commercial construction. Toward that end, we offer a wide array of educational and technical services for homebuyers, builders, masons and architects, as well as a comprehensive marketing program to advance the benefits of building with brick.

We offer seminars to professional and technical groups in the building industry, as well as to student and consumer groups on topics ranging from do-it-yourself brick projects to engineering design. We also work with architects, builders and distributors through specification and review, consultation and on-site inspections. We are here to help ensure that all phases of brick construction - from initial planning though specification and construction - run smoothly and correctly.
