NHBC Accepts - our service for Innovative Construction
NHBC Accepts is our new, comprehensive review service for innovative products and systems. From the UK’s leading new homes warranty and insurance provider, NHBC Accepts is the fast-track route to approval for building systems used in homes covered by our Buildmark warranty product.
We’ve been helping to improve build quality through NHBC Standards since 1936. We provide warranty and insurance for around 80% of the new homes built in the UK each year with around a million on site inspections carried out each year. We use that scale, expertise and knowledge to help build confidence in innovative construction methods and systems.
If you see the NHBC Accepts logo, you can be sure that we have rigorously assessed that innovative product or system and that we consider it can meet our robust standards, giving confidence to developers, investors, lenders and homeowners. It also demonstrates that, subject to appropriate design and installation, the product can be used in homes covered by Buildmark.
NHBC Accepts for MMC manufacturers
We have a dedicated team who are experts in innovative construction. They’ve already assessed, reviewed and approved nearly 50 systems.
Now, with NHBC Accepts, we can review your product and, if it meets our stringent standards, give you licence to use the NHBC Accepts logo in all your marketing materials. We’ll also list your product in our searchable database as an approved system.
You can expect a personalised, professional service. The team will carry out detailed¿and robust technical reviews at key stages and keep in touch with you about their findings. Our assessment processes are transparent and thorough. We carry out ongoing reviews of the product design, manufacture and construction and share our findings with you to help you continually improve your product.
An NHBC Accepts certificate demonstrates that innovative products or systems have already been reviewed by us, reducing the risk of delays on site and giving confidence to your buyers and lenders.
You can also have confidence that the product or system has undergone our detailed assessment and review before you procure it too. When working with an innovative product, a manufacturer can now easily demonstrate the answer to a common question – does NHBC accept this?
