History

CALIFORNIA’S PREMIER STATISTICAL RESOURCE SINCE 1954

CIRB (Construction Industry Research Board) has been California’s premier statistical resource for residential and commercial building permit data since 1954.

The California Homebuilding Foundation (CHF) acquired the CIRB Report from the Building Industry Association of Southern California (BIASC) and its research director, Ben Bartolotto, in 2012.

Located at the CHF and CBIA headquarters in Sacramento, CA, CIRB distributes its signature monthly publication, the California Construction Review, in addition to innovating new data formats and reports.
