What we do
Our role is to work with the house-building and wider construction industry to provide inspection and technical services to raise the standards of new homes, and to provide consumer protection for new home owners.
There are approximately 16,000 house builders and developers on NHBC's Register (known as registered builders or registered developers) who agree to comply with our Rules and Standards when building new homes.
NHBC employs over 1,100 staff, including 280 building inspectors across the UK, who carry out and collect data on around one million inspections at key stages of home construction each year. As well as inspectors, we employ surveyors, engineers, energy assessors, health and safety, training, registration and claims staff, who all deliver NHBC's key services to our customers.
We provide new home buyers with a 10-year warranty and insurance policy called 'Buildmark' to provide invaluable protection for new home owners.
NHBC has positioned itself as an expert authority on the housing industry contributing to all aspects of the housing agenda.
