Founded in 2009, Eclectic Builders focuses on home renovation around the New York City area. The company prides itself on forging strong relationships with its clients as well as using quality materials and construction techniques. Eclectic Builders maintains membership with several industry organizations, including Hudson Valley Builders and Remodelers Association (HVBRA).
Founded as the Builders Association of the Hudson Valley, Inc., in 1952, HVBRA was incorporated in the mid-1960s and now represents almost 300 builder and associate members working in the Hudson Valley and Westchester. The organization provides members with services and programs, such as seminars on building codes, certification programs, and video training information.
One of the ways the HVBRA promotes the residential building industry is through a yearly scholarship grant of $1,000. This scholarship is available for members, their employees, and their families. A HVBRA member can also sponsor a student that may benefit from the scholarship. All applicants must submit their grades, references, and an essay explaining their career goals. Finalists must undergo an interview by the scholarship committee.
