J. Murphy & Sons has signed up to newly-formed national contractor trade body, Build UK.

The contractor, which now employs around 3,000 staff, is also joined by Asbestos Removal Contractors Association, which becomes the third trade association to join Build UK this year.

Bill Merry, business development and communications director for Murphy, said: “Joining forces with Build UK is a great opportunity for us to work even more closely with our partners and peers to share ideas and best practice.

“We hope that together we can help drive the need for innovation and collaborative working as part of the supply chain, so that the construction industry can continue to improve and develop.”

ARCA chief executive Steve Sadley said: “The health and safety of the workforce and public is critical with regard to the removal of asbestos, a Category 1 carcinogen.

“At ARCA we are committed to promoting safety and professionalism throughout the licensed asbestos removal industry, and welcome the opportunity to work with other leading trades to ensure asbestos is properly managed throughout the construction industry.”
