We are proud to announce that we are now one of the latest demolition contractors to officially be awarded full membership to the NFDC, demonstrating to our clients and customers our commitment to Health & Safety and our dedication to continued improvement.

The guidelines which are set by the NFDC ensure that its members are considering Health, Safety and Environmental factors above anything else when undertaking a project, helping to bring a considerable level of professionalism and technical ability to our industry”.

With 149 corporate Members, the National Federation of Demolition Contractors was originally founded in 1941 to help spearhead London’s post-blitz clean-up campaign. Today the NFDC continue to promote standards which are dedicated to:

• Continually improve the demolition industry for the benefit of its members, customers and the general public. 
• To enhance the flow of information and discussion between the demolition industry and Government, trade and technical organisations; and customers for the betterment of the industry at large.
• To raising the profile of the demolition industry to ensure that it receives due recognition for its commitment to training, Health and Safety, and the improved working conditions it affords members and their employees. 

Matthews Demolition underwent a rigorous audit regime across several ‘live’ demolition sites in order to satisfy the stringent criteria required for NFDC membership. A combination of site set up, Health & Safety standards, safe working practices and excellent record keeping ensured we deservedly achieved membership.
