Two demolition contractors have unveiled their new headquarters as they embark upon a ‘new age’ in Hemel Hempstead.
The National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC) and National Demolition Training Group (NDTG) today (Monday, July 10) unveiled their new headquarters at a dedicated event attended by more than 60 industry representatives and the local MP.
Established in 1941, the NFDC is the driving force behind the evolution of the demolition sector, uniting more than 130 contractors and 90 industry service providers to raise industry standards, ensure maximum safety on sites, and promote peer-to-peer learning and engagement, whilst 2023 also marks the 45th anniversary of the NDTG.
In acquiring the new 7,500 sq ft office building in Hemel Hempstead, the two organisations have established a modern base able to accommodate both federation and membership growth, and also the delivery of industry events and dedicated training and development seminars.
Sir Mike Penning, MP for Hemel Hempstead, attended the event and cut the official ribbon, opening the new Resurgam House office.
At the opening, the MP said: “The future of the NFDC and NDTG is bright and needs to be at the heart of government policy in driving the required change and innovation. It is a brilliant industry to be a part of and work needs to be done to raise awareness amongst young people about the opportunities that exist. I congratulate the whole team on this achievement and support them over the coming years.”
New CEO Duncan Rudall said: “The investment in the new NFDC and NDTG headquarters is representative of the ‘new age’ of the Federation, as we continue to play a vital role in shaping industry standards, while ensuring we respond effectively and proactively to new challenges.
The new building is part of our renewed strategy and something the leadership team and I are incredibly proud of. We now look forward to leveraging this space as much as possible and in increasing our membership engagement.”
