National Federation of Builders

The National Federation of Builders (NFB) is the construction industry’s longest established trade association and has grown in stature since its origins in the late 19th century. The federation represents companies involved in the building and construction industry in England and Wales.

Today, the NFB is a modern, proactive organisation that has steadily built up a reputation for sound judgement, high media profile, and a robust approach to protecting members’ interests.  The federation provides expert advice for members on legal, employment, financial services, taxation, procurement, health and safety, environmental, technical, training, and government funding issues.

Our vision is to help our members build prosperous businesses and create optimal conditions for the construction industry.

NFB Business & Skills

NFB Business & Skills is the training and development arm of the NFB. Working with industry experts we have developed a wide ranging portfolio of sector specific training support to construction companies and their supply chains. Our position within the sector ensures that development of both our workshop based training and wider business improvement initiatives remain relevant to the challenges faced by those companies working in the sector today.

NFB Business & Skills is recognised for its development and delivery of medium to long term business improvement programmes and for its commitment to working with, and challenging, SMEs to go beyond compliance to achieve excellence. Our long history of working with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) to secure funding to support these initiatives ensures that SMEs are able to continue competing at the highest level.
