British Sugar TOPSOIL are the first topsoil suppliers to gain the NHBC Accepts certificate

NHBC, the leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes in the UK, has announced that British Sugar TOPSOIL’s Landscape20 General Purpose Topsoil products have been officially welcomed to NHBC Accepts.

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 from sub-standard materials. Launched last July, the service has now accepted a range of products and systems, which over the course of the year have helped in the delivery of more than 5,000 innovative, high quality new homes across the UK. 

Any product or 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. 

NHBC Innovation Manager Richard Lankshear said: “We are delighted to welcome British Sugar TOPSOIL to NHBC Accepts. We know from feedback that once a product or 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 product is suitable and acceptable to meet the standards set to obtain our ten-year NHBC Buildmark warranty. 

“With the demands on the industry to increase the volume of new homes and the simultaneous challenges around materials and skills, we are at a critical stage in the development of MMC. We are proud to be using our scale, expertise and knowledge of traditional house building to work with manufacturers to provide the confidence that innovative products and systems can meet and sometimes exceed the same high standards of quality and durability as traditionally-built homes.”   

National TOPSOIL Manager Andy Spetch said: “We have worked closely with the NHBC in recent years to establish the needs of new home builders, developing topsoil products that they can use with confidence and providing help and guidance on soils. We are proud to be the first topsoil supplier to have achieved the NHBC Accepts seal of approval and hope that this will provide further confidence in our products to our existing customers and the wider industry.”
