Latest technical advice for homebuilders available from NHBC

NHBC, the leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes in the UK, has published the latest in its series of Technical Extra guides aimed at informing and updating the industry on a range of key technical issues.

Technical Extra provides supplementary advice and guidance to NHBC's Standards, which provide the benchmark for acceptable levels of design, material specification and workmanship for newly-built homes registered with NHBC.

Technical Extra 7 features an update on Standards Chapter 7.2 'Pitched roofs' and the importance of correct specification and detailing, which amplifies the review of the Chapter in 2011.

Also featured in this issue is a focus on revised statutory guidance for contaminated land, detailed advice on the verification of ground gas protection measures and comprehensive details of upcoming technical events and additional support for homebuilders.

NHBC Standards are continuously reviewed and updated, with the next publication due later this year.
