In this paper some methods of construction of balanced bipartite block (BBPB) designs are obtained which are based on incidence matrices of the known balanced incomplete block (BIB) designs and two-associate-class partially balanced incomplete block (2-PBIB) group divisible (GD) designs. The obtained results are given with examples to show how they can be applied.
