Build UK

In 2010, ADCAS joined the National Specialist Contractors’ Council (NSCC). The NSCC was established to represent specialist subcontractors.

In At the end of June 2015, the National Specialist Contractors Council (NSCC) agreed to join with the UK Contractors Group to form BuildUK. The new organisation is led by Chief Executive Suzannah Nichol MBE. ADCAS is now a part of this new organisation.

BuildUK brings together 28 of the UK’s main contractors as well as 40 leading trade associations which represent more than 11,500 specialist contractors.

With strong ties to government, BuildUK is ideally placed to put forward the needs and concerns of a sometimes forgotten sector of the construction market.

ADCAS alone sometimes finds it difficult to be heard, but being part of BuildUK gives us a far stronger voice. Common problems and issues can be highlighted and resolved to the benefit of the entire industry.

Take advantage of the services and advice that BuildUK offers – it comes free with ADCAS membership. Visit the BuildUK website for more details of the services you can access as a member of ADCAS, or email Rebecca Joyce on rebeccaj@feta.co.uk for more information.
