HELPING the UK’s housebuilders prepare for a changing landscape is the overriding theme throughout this year’s ‘Building for tomorrow’ roadshows, run by the National House Building Council (NHBC).
The roadshows consist of seminars where NHBC experts present the latest technical and regulatory updates in house-building, as well as sharing best practice guidelines obtained from the 900,000 site inspections carried out by the council each year.
The 28th NHBC roadshow will focus on preparing for quality homes by addressing the changing political, economic and market landscape. On-going industry issues such as the skills shortage, supply chain challenges and the changes to the regulatory landscape will also be discussed.
The roadshows aim to explore the future of construction with the increasing use of components, framed construction and Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) all part of this year’s agenda. There will also be an update on the proposed changes in fire safety following the Hackitt Review.
Commenting on the agenda, Nick Cunningham, NHBC Regional Director for the South West Region, said: “We are in a period of great change in many aspects of the industry and of course the wider political sphere – we will aim to cover the key issues to help housebuilders adapt to these in the continuing bid to build more, high-quality new homes.
“Over many years Building for tomorrow has proved to be the perfect event to network with professionals from across the UK house-building sector and to showcase your latest products to industry leaders, home builders and housing associations.”
