House-builder Barratt Developments welcomed the National House Building Council (NHBC) to it’s Grange development in Lightcliffe to mark the start of a working relationship with them to gauge the quality of all Barratt and David Wilson Homes as part of a construction quality review.

The visits, which were completed by Geoff Egginton, NHBC regional director for the north east, took place at a number of sites throughout the region, including St John’s Walk in Hoylandswaine, The Grange in Lightcliffe and Hartley Brook in Netherton.

Darren Johnson, construction director at Barratt Developments, said: “We put a lot of pride in the fact that our homes are produced to the highest quality. We were delighted to be able to welcome Geoff along to some of our new sites to demonstrate this, all of which showcases the dedication we place in the construction of the highest quality homes.”

Geoff Egginton, NHBC regional director for the north east, said: “I was delighted to be taken on a tour of a number of Barratt Development sites across the Yorkshire West division. Barratt and David Wilson Homes are both providing much-needed new family homes, and these new developments in Hoylandswaine, Lightcliffe and Netherton showcase a real dedication to the improvement of quality of new homes.

“The achievements being made in construction quality, and the management systems and training put in place, are a credit to BDW and a great example to the wider industry.”

“In 2015, the North enjoyed a good year for house building and we hope this continues. As the UK’s leading insurance and warranty provider of new homes,”
