Get Started
Band of Builders was born in 2016 when founder Addam Smith took to social media to ask for help renovating the home of close friend and colleague Keith Ellick who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. The incredible response from tradespeople across the UK saw the project completed and demonstrated what can be achieved when the industry stands together.


From there, Band of Builders was formed and continues to complete further projects across the UK with the value of TogetherStronger at its core. Their online store provides them with essential funding for their projects. 

Band of Builders work together to raise thousands to support families in need

In 2019 the organisation gained charity status in England and Wales and now works formally to help members of the construction industry and their families across the country in their hour of need.

Since that first project to help Keith, Band of Builders has completed a wide range of projects with a combined delivery value of over £1m which includes accessible bathrooms and kitchens, wheelchair ramps, cabins and even complete home renovations.

They provide practical, financial and wellbeing support to support members of the construction sector and partner with industry leaders to ensure they can help as many people as possible.

Every purchase on the Band of Builders shop helps to fund their next project. They are looking to add partners to their existing line of apparel and accessories to further enhance the Band of Builders brand and increase their reach.

When Addam Smith’s mate Keith Ellick was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Addam wanted to do something - anything - to make his life a little bit easier. A plan to landscape his garden won the support of his fellow tradesmen and saw the project grow into a full-scale renovation of Keith’s house carried out by volunteers from across the country.

Since then, Band of Builders has been unstoppable, uniting members of the construction industry through the simple desire to help others.

Band of Builders are the innovators of The Big Brew,  an annual campaign to encourage UK construction industry workers and tradespeople to come together over a brew to support one another and remove the taboo around mental health. 

The initiative is focused on improving awareness of both mental health issues and routes to available support for members of the UK construction industry. Check out their site to find out how you can support The Big Brew this year.
