Eco-200 Timber Frame, made by LoCaL Homes, will now carry the ‘NHBC Accepts’ Logo
NHBC, the UK’s leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes, has welcomed LoCaL Homes’s Eco-200 closed timber frame system to its NHBC Accepts scheme.
NHBC Accepts – endorsed by the Government’s Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) Champion, Mark Farmer and recognised by Homes England and UK Finance – enables quicker assessment of a home for warranty and reduces the risk to the builder of delays in their project.
NHBC Technical Innovation Manager, Chris Hall said: “We are delighted to welcome LoCaL Homes to NHBC Accepts. We know from feedback that once a system is given the NHBC Accepts green light that this creates confidence in quality, long-term durability and traceability.
“We actively assess construction quality both on-site and off-site to verify that each system is suitable and acceptable to meet the standards set to obtain our ten-year NHBC Buildmark warranty.
“Any system with the NHBC Accepts logo will have been rigorously assessed to ensure it can meet NHBC’s robust standards, giving confidence to developers, investors, lenders and homeowners.”
Mike Doolan, Sales & Partnerships Manager at LoCaL Homes, said “We are really pleased to see that LoCaL Homes have obtained the NHBC Accepts status. It is testimony to our technical team, production quality and processes that we can satisfy the extremely high standards that are required. It gives our customers comfort to know that our systems have NHBC accreditation.”
Even once accepted, NHBC’s Innovation team continue to review quality through factory and site inspections and seek feedback from those working with the system on site. This knowledge is shared with the owners to help continually improve their system.
