Building confidence in innovative construction
NHBC Accepts is our comprehensive review service for innovative systems. It is the fast-track route for acceptance of these systems for use in homes covered by all NHBC warranty and insurance policies, equivalent to around 70-80% of the new homes built in the UK each year.
With the demands on the industry to increase the volume of new homes’ supply and the simultaneous challenges around materials and skills, we are at a critical stage in the development of modern methods of construction (MMC). We are proud to be using our scale, expertise and knowledge of house building to work with manufacturers to provide developers, investors, lenders and home buyers with the confidence that innovative systems can meet the same high standards of quality and durability as traditionally-built homes.
An NHBC Accepts logo shows that an innovative system has been rigorously assessed and that we consider it can meet our robust NHBC Standards. It also demonstrates that, subject to appropriate design and installation, the system can be used in homes covered by all our warranty products.
