The IoBM is a keen supporter of the Practical Building Skills Challenge.
Designed to offer merchant staff a taste of some of the main building disciplines and to underpin product and practical knowledge, the Practical Building Skills Challenge event is an enjoyable and beneficial experience for all merchants who take part.
Teams are pitted against the clock and each other to complete a number of building tasks across four different disciplines: block paving, constructing a stud wall, tiling and bricklaying. Their efforts are then judged and the winners announced at the end of the day.
How will it benefit your team?
Every participant will gain a much more practical knowledge of some of the key products and disciplines that merchant customers buy and use on a day-to-day basis.
How to enter the Skills Challenge
The Practical Building Skills Challenge is now run by the Builders’ Merchant Federation (BMF).
