The process of choosing a construction company represents one of the hardest aspects of any building project. However, certain information about your prospective choices can help make the decision easier. For example, we strongly advise our clients in Putney, and any other location, to choose a building company with membership to the Federation of Master Builders (FMB). At UK Maintenance & Construction, whether you require us as general builders, groundworks contractors or shop fitters, all our services come backed by membership with the FMB. From property refurbishments to plumbing and electrical work, we remain the trusted choice for discerning property owners.
We don’t simply like to make claims without backing them up. That’s not how we operate as a construction company. As such, below, we have outlined why choosing builders, groundworks contractors and shop fitters with FMB membership remains so important for our clients in Putney and the surrounding areas.
The Federation of Master Builders holds status as the UK construction industry’s largest trade association. A non-profit, independent organisation, the FMB operates to a simple manifesto: build better. In fact, the FMB rightfully thinks everyone involved in building projects deserves better, from the builders, groundworks contractors and shop fitters to the clients who hire them.
In order to gain membership, a building company needs to meet stringent qualifying criteria. This goes far beyond basic checks and ratings. The FMB has prospective members inspected and vetted to provide credible proof of their superior calibre. These criteria include a confirmed trading address, holding the correct insurance, passing credit checks and undergoing independent inspections of finished work and works in progress. Each member must also sign the FMB Code of Conduct.
By enforcing these criteria, the FMB not only raises the standards for property refurbishments, shop fit outs and building work of any kind, it also ensures each construction company operates with integrity.
Quite simply, FMB membership represents a hallmark of quality and excellence.
In the unlikely event of something going wrong during your project in Putney, the FMB also provides a government-approved disputes service, ensuring independent mediation for a fair resolution.
As a building company that prides itself on the satisfaction of our clients, we truly value our membership with the Federation of Master Builders. While we happily produce testimonials and a portfolio of finished property refurbishments, shop fit outs and a wide range of other projects, this membership further demonstrates to our clients in Putney and beyond that we have had these results externally assessed to the very highest standards.
In our various roles as builders, groundworks contractors and shop fitters, UK Maintenance & Construction provides complete project management. We ensure every job we take on as a construction company, from property refurbishments to roofing and cladding, reaches a conclusion on time, within budget and to exceptional standards of workmanship.
