trade associations

As part of our commitment to excellence, Fleming Homes is a long-standing affiliate of several timber and construction trade associations. This keeps us at the cutting edge of training and industry developments, and also in close touch with changing laws, building regulations, and government initiatives.

Our current trade memberships include:

National Custom & Self Build Association (NaCSBA)

NaCSBA advocates for custom build and self-build in UK housing strategy.

It’s responsible for delivering the Self Build Portal, a hugely informative UK-government-endorsed website for self-builders.

NaCSBA brings together developers, architects, planners, financial and warranty providers, manufacturers, self-builders, community groups and local authorities to develop, share and promote best practice in self-build.

It has contributed to government housing strategy, and promotes self-build and custom build as a way to deliver volume housing.

Fleming Homes has been a member of NaCSBA since 2010.

Timber Research and Development Association (TRADA)

TRADA is the UK’s leading authority on wood, and an internationally recognised centre of excellence on the specification and use of timber and wood products.

Its members are companies and individuals from around the world and across the entire wood supply chain, including producers, architects, engineers, and timber frame manufacturers.

Fleming Homes has been a member of TRADA since 1986.


Structural Timber Association (STA)

The STA champions the role of timber in sustainable construction, and influences government and industry on behalf of the timber sector.
It plays an industry-leading role in quality, health and safety, education, technical knowledge and customer service, by providing seminars, factory tours, research, information and advocacy.

Fleming Homes re-joined the STA in 2016.
