Summary of the 2018 event

Running for 28 years, Building for tomorrow is our annual series of seminars where industry experts and NHBC present the latest technical and regulatory updates in house-building as well as sharing best practice gleaned from the 900,000+ site inspections we carry out each year.

Building for tomorrow is a key event in the industry calendar and, as one previous delegate put it, “If you only attend one event in a year, make sure it’s Building for tomorrow!”

Information for delegates

Many delegates return to Building for tomorrow year after year but if you’ve not been before you may be interested to hear what previous attendees thought about the event.

Preparing for quality homes – our 2019 theme

This year, our theme of preparing for quality homes will cover the changing political, economic and market landscape and what that means for house building in the future. It will include factors such as the Brexit deadline in March 2019, the skills shortage, supply chain and market challenges, as well as, of course, changes to the regulatory landscape. We’ll guide you through the potential impact of these challenges and what needs to be done to prepare to build quality homes in this changing environment.

A strong feature of the future will be the increasing use of components, framed constructions and off site manufacturing which we will also explore as part of this year’s programme. Building upon feedback from last year’s Building for tomorrow events and the ongoing collaborative work we do with manufacturers, we will look at how feedback on quality can help improve standards for the future as well as meet changing regulatory requirements.
