About Fred Mills
Founder and MD of The B1M
Fred Mills is Founder and MD of The B1M - the world’s largest and most subscribed-to video channel for construction with over 1 million YouTube subscribers and 18 million viewers each month.
Having worked with a leading UK contractor, Fred founded The B1M to focus on sharing “the best of construction” – improving the industry while helping to attract more people to come and work in it.
Fred has since grown The B1M into the world’s largest and most subscribed-to video channel for construction with over 18 million viewers each month. It now employs an 11-strong team from its London headquarters.
The B1M was hand-chosen by YouTube as a “Creator on the Rise” out of all 505,000,000 accounts and is the first construction or built environment channel ever to receive YouTube’s Silver and Gold Creator Awards. It ranks in the top 13,000 YouTube channels worldwide.
In September 2020, The B1M was named by The Times as one of the 20 best educational YouTube channels in the world.
In November 2020 Fred secured a world exclusive interview with Sir Richard Branson following Virgin Hyperloop's first passenger test.
In May 2021, Fred launched a new YouTube channel under The B1M Limited focused on the shaping the future of construction. "Tomorrow's Build" quickly won acclaim and gained more than 10,000 subscribers in its first 48 hours.
Fred’s videos have amassed hundreds of millions of views making him a global figure in video publishing and a role model to millions of people interested or already working in construction. In 2020 he was named a leading influencer in the sector.
Fred’s mission is to fundamentally alter the perception of construction on planet Earth – attracting the best people to work in this incredible industry.
