Information, news and updates in the world of building.


I am pleased to announce that Regency Contracting have passed an independent

inspection of our work carried out by the British Board of Agrèment on behalf of the Federation of Master Builders.

Now the first question you are going to ask is am I sure I have the spelling right for “Agrèment”. The second will be what does that mean?

The answer to the first question is “yes” because that is what it says on the certificate I have in front of me. As to the meaning, the Collins English Dictionary defines it as “formal approval for a construction project to proceed”.

The Federation of Master Builders is a not-for-profit organisation which has been operating for over 75 years. It is dedicated to supporting continuous improvement in building standards.

To gain a certificate from them a company has to undergo an independent inspection and that is where the British Board of Agrèment is involved.

The sign of the Federation of Master Builders is recognised as meaning that you can trust the company displaying it. It shows that the company has complied with the strict membership criteria as well as committing to a stringent code of practice. If anything should go wrong their government approved disputes service can refer the issue to independent mediation.

As far as Regency Construction is concerned it is yet another sign of our commitment to providing the best possible service to our clients. Do give us a call on 01452 372229 to find out what we can do for you.
