Change to NHBC’s classification of Major Projects from 1 April 2022
A major project is classified as 7 storeys or above or exceeding 18 metres (whichever is reached first), or a scheme that has been deemed high risk.
NHBC has reclassified the schemes we consider a major project from 1 April 2022 onwards to reflect the legal framework expected as part of the Building Safety Bill. This also forms part of a wider evolution of our Technical Risk Management programme, following several added-value changes including new Technology Assisted Inspections, Joint Virtual Meetings and Quality Common Scoring.
We are committed to supporting the industry in navigating regulatory change, providing a clear framework for registered builders and developers in readiness for the Building Safety Bill.
