Looking for a high quality new home?

by on Wednesday 25 July, 2018 in Industry News,Moving Homes,New Homes


You’ve decided it’s time to move house, but with the huge variety of properties on the market just where do you start?  Perhaps you are weighing up a new build versus an existing house?  Or is the world your oyster and you are finding it hard to pinpoint where in the country you would like to settle?

We may be able to help. The map below shows you where to find new build home developments of outstanding quality. The map contains the 450 sites that have been awarded an NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Award this year. Use the zoom function to see all the sites in your part of the country or, if you’d rather search by county, take a look at this map (search function top left).

Pride in the Job is a UK-wide competition dedicated to recognising site managers who achieve the highest standards in house building. These site managers are in the top 3% of the 16,000 managers who competed for the title this year.  They have consistently demonstrated key leadership skills in their day-to-day work; from demanding high standards of workmanship from all trades on site, through to ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of all employees and visitors.

But what is in it for you?  Why should you look for a Pride in the Job winning site when buying your new home?

A Pride in the Job winning home has received high marks across 44 different elements of the build; from its foundations, structure and roof through to the quality of finishes and landscaping.  In addition, our data shows that customers who buy a home on a Pride in the Job winning site have higher levels of satisfaction with their house and builder, so they are without doubt among the best the UK has to offer.

Before you spend hours trawling the internet for your next new home, take a look at the map showing the winning sites.  They will have an NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Award flag flying at the entrance to the development too, so make sure you also keep an eye out for those when visiting a show home.
