The NHBC Foundation´s purpose is to deliver high-quality research and practical guidance to help the industry meet its considerable challenges.
Since its inception, the NHBC Foundation’s work has focused primarily on experts from government, innovation, social housing, house-building and academia and meet on a quarterly basis to discuss how best to focus the NHBC Foundation’s resources to support the industry and policy makers on housing issues. Further details on the Advisory Board can be found here. Research has included a review of microgeneration and renewable energy techniques and the groundbreaking research on zero carbon and what it means to homeowners and housebuilders.
The NHBC Foundation is involved in a programme of positive engagement with government, development agencies, academics and key stakeholders, focusing on current and pressing issues relevant to the industry.
