The Federation of Master Builders

10 Reasons to insure through FMB Insurance

Published date: 11 July 2019

Here at FMB Insurance, we know construction. We understand the needs and concerns of both the builder and homeowner. Our aim is to support and provide an insurance service that complements your projects and gives you confidence and peace of mind throughout the entire construction process.

Having an affiliation with an organisation under the umbrella of a builder’s federation that provides the knowledge and understanding of the complexities of building contract works, gives me huge confidence. It is highly important to have the assurance and knowledge of insurance with continuous 24/7 cover – Ken Farnham, FMB Member and former FMB Board Member.


1) Affiliation with a body that understands the construction industry 

Being a member of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) gives you industry recognition and access to a number of other benefits including; job leads, expert advice, training to grow your business and a voice in government on a national level.

2) Member discounts

If you’re a member of the FMB, then you’ll receive a discount on all of our insurance products.
