NHBC’s Land Quality Service
Our Land Quality Service removes the uncertainty about whether a site is suitable for future housing development. Our specialist team of geotechnical and geo-environmental engineers have been offering a land quality service for more than 17 years and have worked on some of the largest reclamation schemes in the UK. They assess all forms of land at pre-development stage to ensure its suitability for residential development and compliance with the NHBC Standards; from brownfield and geotechnically challenging sites to marginal and greenfield sites.
Land that has an NHBC Land Quality Certificate is already de-risked. You can be assured that our team has thoroughly reviewed the investigation, remediation proposals and verification works and that the land will meet the NHBC Standards for development. This supports you in helping to satisfy planning conditions, giving you confidence in the site prior to registration with us for warranty and adding value for onward sale.
