The Company was granted Livery by The Court of Aldermen in 1990, followed by a Royal Charter of Incorporation by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II in 2010.
Many of the Liverymen are Chartered members of their respective professional institutions – some in leading positions.
They come from all sectors of the construction trade, including architects, surveyors, engineers, builders, lawyers and accountants. This rich diversity gives huge social and professional benefit to livery company members.
