Federation of Master Builders (FMB)
The FMB is a trade association established over 60 years ago to protect the interests of small and medium-sized building firms – today it is the largest trade association in the UK building industry.
Only those builders and specialists who can prove their skills and good business standing are accepted as members.
From the FMB website
“Choosing a builder who’s a member of the FMB means a really good start to any building project. The FMB is a trade association that promotes professionalism and high quality workmanship among small and medium-sized building firms throughout the UK.”
“Only builders and specialists who can comply with the FMB entry criteria are accepted as members. The Federation logo on builders’ vehicles and stationery is widely accepted as the hallmark of a builder who takes pride in the quality of their work, and who matches it with an equally well-run business.”
