CHAS & NFB renew partnership to raise standards in UK construction

CHAS and the National Federation of Builders (NFB) have renewed their commitment to promoting high operating standards within the UK construction industry

CHAS membership will also mean they are eligible to be assessed to the construction industry’s new Common Assessment Standard, which is now being specified by employers including HS2 and the Crown Commercial Service.
Under the latest agreement

Discounted membership of CHAS will give NFB members the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to operating in line with high safety, sustainability and ethical standards via CHAS’s third-party accreditation packages.

CHAS will offer all valid NFB members a 20% discount, for both new and existing/renewing contractors. NFB Contractors will be visible within the CHAS client portal upon order purchase and/or accreditation, making their profile visible to over 1,500 CHAS Clients.

NFB will provide CHAS accredited contractors up to 10% discount when joining the NFB and for subsequent renewals which will give them access to a growing range of benefits including training support and business services.
Building business

Ian McKinnon, managing director of CHAS, said: “We are delighted to be renewing this important partnership which will help construction firms of all sizes demonstrate compliance and build their businesses.

“Both CHAS and the NFB have gone from strength to strength since we first joined forces in 2018 so it is exciting to be able to bring an even greater range of benefits to our respective memberships.”

Richard Beresford, chief executive of the NFB, added: “We are very happy to be renewing this agreement with CHAS which will help our members’ businesses prosper while opening up a range of benefits to CHAS members.”
