The Rural and Industrial Design and Building Association (RIDBA) is the recognised trade association for the modern agriculture and industrial buildings industry representing contractors, fabricators, designers, surveyors, planners, manufacturers and colleges.

RIDBA was formed in 1956 and until 1991 was known as the Farm Buildings Association (FBA) when it changed its name to The Rural Design and Building Association (RDBA). In 2005 it changed its name again to the Rural and Industrial Design and Building Association (RIDBA), in recognition that the differences in construction practices between industrial and farm buildings was reducing all the time and the fact that many members were involved in both.


RIDBA membership is a mark of quality and identifies companies as part of an elite group of professional and reputable market leaders. RIDBA provides a wide range of benefits and services to members, ensuring that they are uniquely placed to deliver the highest quality standards for their clients.
