New build, or not new build, that is the question
30 July 2018
You’ve decided it’s time to move house, but with the huge variety of properties on the market just where do you start? Perhaps you are weighing up a new build versus an existing house? Or is the world your oyster and you are finding it hard to pinpoint where in the country you would like to settle?
Help is at hand from NHBC, the UK’s leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes. NHBC has created an interactive map showing you where to find the 450 new build home developments that have been managed by NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Award winning site managers. Details of the sites can be accessed from NHBC’s New Homes website www.nhbcnewhomes.co.uk.
Pride in the Job is a UK-wide competition dedicated to recognising site managers who achieve the highest standards in house building. These site managers are in the top 3% of the sixteen thousand managers who competed for the title this year. They have consistently demonstrated key leadership skills in their day-to-day work; from demanding high standards of workmanship from all trades on site, through to ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of all employees and visitors.
But what is in it for you? Why should you look for a development managed by a Pride in the Job winning site manager when buying your new home?
A Pride in the Job winning site manager demands high standards of workmanship from all trades on site and continually strives to raise the standard of every aspect of the work carried out. In addition, our data shows that customers who buy a home managed by a Pride in the Job winning site manager have higher levels of satisfaction with their house and builder, so they are without doubt among the best the UK has to offer.
Before you spend hours trawling the internet for your next new home, take a look at the map showing the developments run by winning site managers (www.nhbcnewhomes.co.uk). They will have an NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Award flag flying at the entrance to the development too, so make sure you also keep an eye out for those when visiting a show home.
