Guild Overview

Based on a strong commitment to and presence in the housing market, NRHA established a Builders and Designers Guild (“the Guild”). The Guild is comprised of builders, architects and qualified designers, who share a common belief that quality design and craftsmanship are integral components of creating great neighborhoods. Guild membership is required for single-family (attached and detached) construction projects, where NRHA is the land developer. The Guild may ultimately be expanded to include multifamily and other development scenarios.
