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 12 million viewers each month.
Having worked with a leading UK contractor, Fred co-founded The B1M in 2012 and focused 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 1 million YouTube subscribers and 12 million viewers each month. It now employs an eight-strong team from its London headquarters.
The B1M is now one of YouTube’s most celebrated educational channels. It was hand-chosen by YouTube as a “Creator on the Rise” out of all 505,000,000 accounts, is the first construction or built environment channel ever to receive YouTube’s Silver and Gold Creator Awards, and ranks in the top 18,000 YouTube channels worldwide.
In February 2019 and February 2020 Fred delivered an address at YouTube’s global education summit, EduCon.
In October 2018, Fred was recognised for his outstanding contribution to digital construction at the inaugural Digital Construction Awards.
Fred’s videos have amassed tens 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.
