The Scottish Building Federation was originally established in 1895 to represent the interests of employers working in the Scottish building industry and to foster cooperation amongst its members on the basis of  shared ideals, collective needs and collaborative business practices.


More than 120 years later, SBF adheres to those same founding principles and continues to represent the interests and aspirations of construction employers located throughout the length and breadth of Scotland.  Above all, our mission is to ensure that the contribution the construction industry makes to the Scottish economy is recognised and valued – and to promote and advocate the positive economic, policy and environment our industry needs for a sustainable long-term future.
