The National Federation of Builders (NFB) and Built Environment Networking – a provider of construction and property networking events – have announced its new partnership which will allow the NFB to continue to help its members build prosperous businesses and create optimal conditions for the construction industry.
The NFB represents small to medium-sized builders, regional contractors and house builders across England and Wales. As one of the UK’s longest standing trade bodies, it was created to represent the building profession and to promote conditions its members need to thrive and contribute to the economic success of the UK.
The partnership will see them support the Built Environment Networking conferences, which are designed to bring business and civic-leaders together to collaborate on development and regeneration and drive economic growth across cities, regions and the UK.
Richard Beresford, chief executive of the NFB, said: “NFB members are professional builders and contractors, dedicated to providing quality services with care and consideration. We’re very proud of the high standards that our members achieve and are pleased to announce this partnership, allowing our members to benefit from networking at conferences taking place across the country.”
Keith Griffiths, managing director of Built Environment Networking, added: “We’re delighted to announce this partnership with the NFB and hope this is the start of a long-standing relationship. We have similar values to the NFB and our conferences will enable their members to create new business opportunities and help their companies grow their market share. This partnership will ensure that NFB members get additional benefits from their membership by attending Built Environment Networking conferences at a special discounted rate.’’
