NHBC Foundation celebrates decade of housebuilding research

Leading figures from the housebuilding industry celebrated the 10 year anniversary of the NHBC Foundation at an evening reception that took place on 19 May 2016, at the Blue Fin building in London.

The milestone event, hosted by NHBC Foundation chairman Rt Hon Nick Raynsford, celebrated a decade of research.

Rt Hon Nick Raynsford said:

“When I was asked in 2006 to chair the newly established NHBC Foundation, it was agreed that the priority should be to deliver useful, practical guidance of real value to the industry. I was determined that we should not become just another ‘talking shop’.

“Ten years on, I am delighted that we have delivered more than 80 high quality, relevant and useful reports and guides.”

Over the years, NHBC’s activity has expanded to cover a broader range of research, not only for those in the house-building sector, but also looking at factors affecting homeowners such as the debate around ‘bin blight’ or the effects of tenure integration.

Neil Smith, Head of Research & Innovation at NHBC said:

“Reaching this milestone is a testament to the value of our service and NHBC’s commitment to continued research for the industry.

“We would like to thank our research partners for the energy, enthusiasm and vision they have brought to the successful work of the NHBC Foundation and we look forward to working with them over the next ten years.”
