CULTURE AND COMMUNITY

We care about our people and the communities we serve.

From our safety-first company culture to our involvement in charities and sustainable building, we’re committed to the greater good.
SAFETY AT BUILDERS FIRSTSOURCE

We emphasize safety in every aspect of our culture.

Our team members and their families are our most valuable assets. That’s why we’re committed to providing a safe work environment so our team members will arrive safely home to their families and friends at the end of the workday.

GIVING BACK TO OUR COMMUNITIES

More than a decade ago, Builders FirstSource established an enduring partnership with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Because all of us know someone or have been impacted directly by the devastation of blood cancer, we’re committed to transforming the lives of patients diagnosed each year.

Through a variety of charitable efforts, including the participation of thousands of team members in LLS’s signature Light the Night events across the country, Builders FirstSource continuously supports the non-profit’s mission to raise money for research that will cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

THE BFS CARES PROGRAM

The BFS Cares program was created to help team members facing financial hardship immediately after a natural disaster or unforeseen personal hardship. We provide a tax-free grant, ranging from $500 - $5,000, based on individual team member donations and support from the company. Since 2017, more than 1,000 grants have been provided through donations of $700,000 based on the care and generosity of our team members.

FOCUSED ON SUSTAINABILITY

We strive to put our corporate values into action every day, and this includes efforts to reduce the environmental impact of our products and operations, provide engaging and rewarding work for our team members and always lead with safety and integrity. We integrate environmental, social and governance objectives into our decision-making to deliver long-term value for all stakeholders.

BUILD GREENER WITH US

1 Calculation based on production data for Builders FirstSource READY-FRAME® precut framing packages and roof and floor trusses since January 1, 2019. An independent third-party study found that the lumber reduction from homes built with READY-FRAME®, compared to traditional stick-framed homes, equals approximately 7.8 trees per the average size US home of approximately 2,300 sq. ft. We calculate the number of homes supplied with READY-FRAME® using our average board footage processed per house, which is based on our 2019 READY-FRAME® saw production data and our 2019 data of actual homes produced with READY-FRAME®.The structural building components association (SBCA) study "Framing the American Dream" (sbcindustry.com/fad) found that stick-framed structures use 25% more lumber than manufactured components. We calculate the number of trees saved for homes using our roof and floor trusses using a 25% savings on total board footage production.

SUSTAINABILITY THROUGH INNOVATION

We strive to operate efficiently and in an environmentally responsible manner, limiting waste with innovations that are transforming homebuilding. One of the ways that we are doing this is with READY-FRAME®, our pre-cut framing package that makes framing better, faster, safer, and greener.

  • Give us your plans, and we cut everything you need, just how you need it.
  • Smart Bundled®, compact, pre-cut, and labeled – ready for your framers to assemble on the jobsite.
  • Optimized lumber shipments result in a reduction in lumber shipped to the site and used in construction.
