Expert input, whatever the project

Your project will have a qualified, specialist surveyor to act as your single point of contact. They will co-ordinate all aspects of NHBC's work with you, including our inspection service.

Cost-effective solutions, right from the start

It's important that your designs are right first time to save you the effort and cost of reworking them. That's why our teams go the extra mile to work with your designers to problem solve at an early stage.

Consistent interpretation

We also offer a Type Approval service where we can approve a repeat design, building system or feature to speed up subsequent projects. Please talk to our Customer Services team for more information.
