The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) provides a source of knowledge, professional advice and support for building firms right across the UK. Recent changes to the committee saw Nick Hammond, Managing Director of Brick Baron Ltd in Beverley in East Yorkshire, voted in as President for the Yorkshire & Trent region and Nick Miller from James Legal Solicitors, based in Hull is the new Vice President.
The FMB offers practical advice and support to the general public on choosing and working with the right builders and has a vision to ensure that construction companies are uniquely placed in the market to deliver the highest quality and best value to clients. By doing this the FMB has been transformed into a professional trade association.
Mr Hammond also sits on the FMB’s Home Builders Group, a small group of house builders and National House Building Council board members who lobby government and shadow ministers regarding issues affecting the SME house building sector. Nick Hammond says:
I am delighted to be voted in as President. It is vital that we drive standards upwards within the building trade and I want to be involved in that process from the ground-up.
The Federation of Master Builders promotes standards of excellence and helps its members to continually improve levels of business performance and customer service. Our members are carefully vetted before joining and we adhere to a strict code of practice. Only those builders and specialists who can prove their skills and good business standing are accepted as members.
As Vice President, Nick Miller brings a wide ranging business knowledge together with legal expertise and prides himself on a no-nonsense, practical approach to dealing with his clients’ legal issues. He says:
James Legal has been a member of the FMB for some time now and I have seen the recent resurgence of the Federation in the region. I am more than happy to lend my time and support to the organisation which delivers many benefits to it members, the region, the industry and business in general.
