National house building council partners with the Build Show

As the housing boom continues to strengthen the UK’s economy, the Build Show is pleased to announce that the National House Building Council (NHBC) has joined as an exhibition partner, lending its considerable industry prowess to the show’s line up.

The move comes at a particularly opportune moment, as the Build Show ramps up development of its seminar programme and NHBC will play a pivotal role in shaping this content.

As the UK’s leading standard-setting body and home warranty provider, NHBC helps the industry to maintain and improve the build quality of new homes for homebuyers, whilst providing the benefit of its 10-year Buildmark Warranty & Insurance protection, when required. NHBC currently protects over 1.6 million homes, with a market share of around 80%, giving it a unique insight into the sector that will greatly enhance the show’s development.

NHBC also works to ease the legislative burden faced by house builders and developers, providing its registered builders with a reliable source of technical information and guidance to help them comply with the necessary regulations, as well as meeting requirements under the various levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

NHBC will work directly with the Build Show to ensure that the housing specific content is accurate, up-to-date and relevant, with a particular focus on providing the information, contacts and networking opportunities needed to support this rapidly expanding sector.

David Marchant, Head of Marketing, NHBC commented:

“It is vital for the house-building industry that the quality of new homes continues to be paramount, providing the homes that people want to live in. The Build Show offers house builders of all sizes a fantastic forum to network, share best practice, and learn new skills, all under one roof.”

“We are delighted to be an event partner with the Build Show, which also provides the opportunity for our research arm, the NHBC Foundation, to showcase its topical research for the industry across all three days.”

Paul Godwin, Managing Director of the Build Show, commented:

“House building continues to dominate the agenda for both contractors and suppliers, as the recovery in this sector has played such a critical part in moving the construction industry forwards as a whole. Ensuring that the right support is there to help house builders and developers meet the increased demand will be vital for maintaining growth, as well as keeping one eye towards the future and the planned revision of the Building Regulations in 2016 that will make zero carbon homes mandatory.”

“Having the NHBC on board as an event partner is a fantastic development, as it means we can tap into NHBC’s significant knowledge and expertise in this area – ensuring our visitors and exhibitors get exactly the information and guidance they need.”

Taking place at the Birmingham NEC on 27th, 28th and 29th October 2015, the Build Show will bring together contractors, specifiers, builders, suppliers, housebuilders, architectural technologists and clients, providing the perfect forum to network, showcase new products and discover opportunities for professional development.
