The Building Australia Party is a minor political party in Australia, advocating the rights of the building industry. First registered in New South Wales, it achieved federal registration in June 2010.[1]

The party was founded out of discontent with state and federal governments that push regulations which the founders of the Building Australia Party believe hold back the Australian building and building design industry.[2] Its policies are centred on the building industry and housing affordability,[3] but also include supporting a nurse-to-patient ratio in NSW and encouraging environmental sustainability.[4]

At the 2010 federal election, the party nominated candidates for the Australian Senate in three states (New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia), and also contested three House of Representatives seats: Bennelong, Greenway, and Macarthur, but did not receive enough votes to enter either house. It contested seats at the NSW State election in March 2011.[5] The party contested at the 2013 federal election for senate seats in NSW,[6] Victoria,[7] Queensland,[8] and South Australia, [9] however they failed to win any seats.

The party is led by Raymond Brown JP,[10] an accredited Building Designer and the Past National President of the Building Designers Association of Australia.[11] He has served as a councillor and the Deputy Mayor of the Hills Shire Council.

The party has been involved in Glenn Druery's Minor Party Alliance.[12][13]
