Technical Standards

Registered Builders & Developers

All actively building NHBC registered builders and developers receive a copy of our Standards when published (if you require additional copies please see below).

Buyers should be aware that Standards Plus, the fully interactive online version of the Standards complete with supplementary information and added optimisation for mobile devices, has been made freely available to all visitors to our website.

Technical Standards 2016

Dealing with all elements of the house-building process, from foundations to roofs and finishing, the NHBC Standards are divided into easily referenced sections.

The Standards 2016 edition introduces a new look and feel for the first time in over two decades, with the both hard copy and online versions benefiting from a host of new features that make it the simplest, yet most informative, version to date.

The Standards 2016 edition becomes effective for every new home registered with NHBC where foundations are begun on or after 1st January 2016.
