Who are the Federation of Master Builders?
The Federation of Master Builders is the largest trade association in the UK construction industry, representing thousands of firms in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Established in 1941 to protect the interests of small and medium-sized (SME) construction firms, the FMB is independent and non-profit making, lobbying for members' interests at both the national and local level.
Master Builders can access a range of business support services to help grow, improve and protect their businesses. FMB members are professionally vetted and independently inspected on joining and can offer a warranty on their work. To gain inspiration for your building project, and to find a Master Builder, use our free Find a Builder service.
Our Manifesto: Build Better
When it comes to building quality, you deserve better. That's why for over 75 years, the not-for-profit Federation of Master Builders has championed continuous improvement in building standards.
The FMB goes beyond simple checks and ratings. Instead, we independently inspect and vet our members upon joining to provide credible proof of their quality.
And we go further to provide ongoing training, contracts and warranty protection for the work. So whether you're a Master Builder or a client dreaming of a masterpiece, you're assured of a better experience.
Because building better means building trust. So as a member you know your business will be supported and promoted. And as a homeowner you will know you're working with the right people.
Look for the sign you can trust and make your building experience better.
