Representing small and medium-sized house builders, the HBA is determined to deliver opportunities to the most productive sector of the construction industry. The HBA lobbies for policy changes and supports members through business and skills training, as well as providing opportunities to win work.
We believe SMEs are integral to building the homes people want in the places they want to live. SME house builders deliver quality, speed, affordability, tackle difficult to deliver sites, and are important to the local economy. The HBA brings this message to the very heart of Government and local authorities.
With devolution continuing to move powers away from Westminster, Wales has become an integral part of the HBA’s focus. Collaborating with Construction Excellence Wales, as well as being part of Wales Futures Group, the HBA continues to challenge conventional approaches and to deliver more strategic policies. SMEs are integral to Wales meeting its housing targets and we are determined that the devolved administration understands and acts on this.
We work on frameworks with local authorities, on procurement processes with Government bodies such as Homes England, and with regional strategy managers. All of this work is to increase SME engagement and to ensure all parties understand the critical role small and medium-sized house builders play in the industry and in our economy.
