About Controlled
Environment Building Association (CEBA)

In 1978, a small group of insulation contractors gathered to discuss the formation of an association representing contractors who serve the specific needs of the cold storage industry. Within a year, the National Association of Cold Storage Insulation Contractors was incorporated and its founding Board of Directors was named. The purpose and objectives were soon refined, and in 1981 the first annual conference was held, as well as other educational programs.

A Technical Committee was formed to serve the membership and industry studies, a building code and specific publications were developed. In 1987, the name was changed to International Association of Cold Storage Contractors . In 2002, another name change was made to International Association for Cold Storage Construction to invite a broader membership and give all members equal status.

In an effort to better align with a changing industry and the expanding expertise of its members, the association's name changed in 2018 to the Controlled Environment Building Association (CEBA).
