On the 12th July 2016, Operations Director Peter Lindsley attended a parliamentary reception at the House of Lords to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB).
The event brought together industry representatives from across the country, as well as more than 40 MPs, journalists, civil servants and special advisers. It was an excellent opportunity to meet a range of professionals who have all been influenced by and involved with the FMB’s work.
The reception reinforced the importance of the FMB in today’s world, and its relevance going forward. It also provided the opportunity to reflect on the FMB’s achievements to date and to explore some of its key policy messages.
The FMB was established back in 1941 and is now the UK’s largest trade association in the building industry. It champions continuous improvement in building standards and works to provide benefits for members and, ultimately, their customers.
The reception saw the FMB reveal a new logo as part of their re-brand, which is designed to further build on consumer recognition. The new logo focuses on ‘Master Builders’ and will act as an official stamp of credibility. This helps to make it easier for customers to recognise members, and it is accompanied by a new manifesto outlining the FMB’s core values. These include a dedication to carrying out independent inspections, building a better customer experience and creating trust.
We are very proud to have been FMB members since 2012, and our Operations Director Peter Lindsley also sits on the FMB training and trail blazer groups. In order to remain members, we need to meet with strict criteria and pass a 3-yearly inspection. Our membership is our customers’ assurance that we are experts in our field and provide consistently high standards in everything we do.
Brian Berry, Chief Executive of the FMB.
