Blazing a Trail in the Trowel Trades.

Brianna Leigh Coffer is a 3rd-year restoration apprentice with BAC Local 1 PA/DE. She is a great representation of what the future looks like for women in the trades: strong and determined to make space for everyone. With her budding love for making old things new again, Brianna has had the honor of restoring multiple historical projects across Philadelphia and being a part of that history.

"The Philadelphia Contributionship is the oldest property insurance company in the United States and was founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1752. My team and I got to repave the building's entire sidewalk with a herringbone pattern of bricks. That was so special to me."

Remembering Tony Biddle, a lifelong industry friend

Tony Biddle, an active Member of EBA and friend to many in our community, passed away on June 7. Tony was involved in numerous industry associations and it's hard to go anywhere in Philadelphia that hasn’t been touched by him!

He was a student of the business and proud of what he was able to build over his 45 year career in the construction industry. We will miss Tony and know his legacy will continue through his family business.
