Agenda for Building for tomorrow 2017

  • Construction quality reviews – LIVE!
    This interactive session will explore the root causes of both defective workmanship and building excellence through the NHBC lens and explore some of the design, procurement and construction challenges facing the industry today.
  • Trends, troubles and tips with customer satisfaction
    Maintaining and enhancing homeowner customer satisfaction is a must for the housing industry over the coming years with potential further growth in the market place. So, what have our consumers been telling us through their comments on the Customer Satisfaction Surveys and how can we help utilise that information to improve the customer experience? We’ll take a look.
  • NHBC Standards 2017
    NHBC Standards 2017 come into force on 1 January 2017, and will include a new chapter dedicated to render. We’ll take a look at a number of the updates and other topical technical issues and how they impact on the construction of new homes.
  • Construction materials & product testing – meeting the performance standards
    The testing of materials and products has a key role to play in helping drive standards, quality and provide defect analysis to help eliminate future problems. Taking a number of topical case studies we will explore how this research can assist the housing industry.
  • Underfloor heating
    The latest guidance from the NHBC Foundation and an update on our other projects.
  • Waterproofing below ground structures
    With changes introduced last year to NHBC Standards Chapter 5.4 Waterproofing Below Ground Structures, we will take a practical look at implementing this on site.
  • Building components - spandrel panels
    Building components are playing a greater part in standardising housing construction in the industries drive for efficiency and increasing volumes. We place a particular focus on the increasing use of spandrel panels by exploring both the technical aspects and correct site installation.
  • Ground investigation good practice
    Effective ground investigations and remediation all impact the commercial success of a housing development. With some important new requirements coming through things like EC7 we take a closer look at what constitutes best practice.
