About the Guild
The Guild of Builders and Contractors was formed in 1992 by 14 builders. Their aim was to create a Guild consisting of reputable firms and individuals actively involved in the building industry who were experienced, knowledgeable and traded with integrity. They also wished to provide appropriate services to members and ensure that the costs of membership were, and remained, considerably less than other trade organizations.

Corporate members may use the membership badge or logo on their stationery, sign-boards, vehicles and other promotional or advertising material.

Trusted Member. Trusted Membership is open to builders, specialist contractors and construction consultants who can satisfy the higher standards required. These standards include more vigorous financial and credit checks, level of insurance cover and additional customer references taken every year. Due diligence checks are carried out every year and membership is only continued if the member achieves the required standard.
Firms and individuals are invited to apply for membership. All applicants are required to complete an application form and provide references. References are always taken up and applicants are only granted membership where the comments made by the referee indicate knowledge, competence and integrity.
