Why choose NHBC warranty and insurance for mixed-use developments?

Buildmark Connect is our specialist warranty and insurance cover for a wide range of newly built or newly converted commercial premises in mixed-use developments. You can combine it with Buildmark cover if your scheme also includes homes for sale or with Buildmark Choice if you’re building homes for rent.
