The National Federation of Builders (NFB) represents small to medium-sized builders, contractors and house builders across England and Wales. As one of the UK’s longest standing trade bodies, it was created to represent the building profession and to promote conditions its members need to thrive and contribute to the economic success of the UK.
Its members range from the sole trader to large, multi-million pound construction companies, with turnover ranging from below £500,000 to £500 million. The federation provides expert advice, training, representation and business services for members so that they can comply with industry standards, excel in delivery, and grow successful businesses.
"It's excellent to be a member of the NFB. The amount of savings that you turn around and gain financially through the training course." Joe Cook
"They always help you and have always helped us over the years grow as we've needed help, assurances and guidance. They've helped us on our way to success." Simon Girling
