NFRC and NBS team up to promote standards and guidance in roofing

Construction data platform NBS is partnering with the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) to promote standards and guidance within roofing specification to the broader construction industry.

By working together, NBS and the NFRC say they will bring vast amounts of information and resources to its members and customers, providing support during the specification stage of various building projects.

The NFRC is looking to establish closer links with specifiers by providing them with access to technical information and raising awareness of its membership network, ensuring consistent quality specifications across the construction chain.

James Talman, chief executive of the NFRC, said: “Specifiers have a critical role in creating a safer and more sustainable construction industry, and that is why we are delighted to establish a partnership with the NBS. Through this collaboration, specifiers can be assured that the NFRC’s wealth of technical knowledge and expertise on roofing features within NBS’ platforms, will be available to them.

“In return, NFRC members can gain exposure through the NBS source platform and access specialist NBS webinars. Together, we can help specifiers ensure that they are using the highest quality roofing products and contractors.” 

Both companies plan to work together on digital events such as webinars and discussion panels to enrich the debate on industry topics and better support customers.

Commenting on the partnership, Bob Richardson, head of technical and training at the NFRC, said: “We are pleased to be able to provide the NBS with periodic review services and technical knowledge to ensure consistent information is provided throughout the specification process, right through to the installation process. We also welcome the opportunity to be part of future NBS events and webinars.”

Sascia Elliott, head of partnerships at the NBS, added: “NBS is delighted to collaborate with the NFRC and highlight the benefits and importance of specification in the building timeline. It was a natural fit to partner with the NFRC, an organisation that shares a common goal with us to promote standards and guidance in this skilled profession to those in the wider construction industry. By using NBS products and services, specifiers can help guard against risk, increase efficiency and proactively drive better standards for the benefit of the wider construction community.”
