Your partner in managing development risk and protecting investor assets
NHBC has set standards and worked with contractors and developers for 80 years to identify and manage development risk, protecting their assets from major defects.
We have been involved in some of the most complex and iconic residential projects over that time providing a co-ordinated approach through a dedicated team. This gives you unrivalled technical experience, design reviews, commercial building control, development-specific inspections and insurance against structural defects to protect your asset.
NHBC recognise the need for a seamless approach to major projects, and established a dedicated team to support you and your technical teams from the earliest possible stage in the project, maintaining this support through design development and construction operations to final completion.

Co-ordinated responsibility within one team

We recognise that many PRS developments are not simply residential developments, with many having more similarities to commercial developments with differing regulations and building control requirements.Find out more
Buildmark Choice is our warranty and insurance cover for newly built or converted rental developments. It is designed to protect landlords and asset owners from the risk of structural failures and the impacts that can have on their business.
Recognising that all PRS schemes have different requirements, NHBC offers flexible cover to suit your needs, including: structural defects-only insurance, flexible warranty periods; and policy re-assignment if units are sold within the cover period.
Elements of communal developments can sometimes carry additional risks, which may not currently be covered under the Buildmark Choice warranty and insurance product.
To help bridge this gap NHBC, in conjunction with Arthur J Gallagher (UK) Ltd and HSB Engineering Insurance is able to introduce you to Machinery Inherent Defects Insurance. There are two versions of this product, one that provides a level of cover for mechanical and electrical services, and another for district heating services. HSB provide risk management during the build phase through inspection and design support. Once completed, HSB provide cover for latent defects that damage or cause failure to your M&E system(s).FIND OUT MORE
