Distributed builds and load are the main reasons.
A lot of us have a "build server", we stick Bamboo on it and run everything locally. But what if the server becomes overloaded?

Similarly, building in different environments can be done - I know of several places that build essentially the same code for Windows, Linux and Mac and need to build/test on different OS's and even versions.
