Established over 25 years ago, Northern Builder is dedicated to bringing you the latest news on products, companies and services for building professionals.

Our unrivalled experience has allowed us to develop a highly successful bi-monthly magazine, a dedicated website and a trade event.

The diverse and varied nature of the construction industry is reflected in our readership, with our articles providing something for those working on-site through to the office-based personnel designing and managing the latest residential and commercial projects.

In addition to expert industry comment and insights, we specialise in project profiles, technical trends, industry news, corporate events and, of course, company and product profiles.

Online, in print or at our trade events, we remain the company to turn to for the latest in the construction sector.
