We have developed a suite of powerful tools that have revolutionised the building process, streamlining every aspect from contracts administration through to scheduling and the construction phase.

Our in depth builder comparison allows you to make informed decisions about which home builder is the best fit to design and build your home.  NHBB’s Builder’s Cost Compare analyses each builder’s quoted price and conditions. This easy to understand comparison puts all the information at your fingertips. It’s something that no builder can offer you..

NHBB can also
accurately cost
your plans before
you even talk to
a builder.

The Design Cost Calculator allows us to instantly generate accurate build costs based on your design and level of specification. This also allows us to quickly and accurately analyse and cost plans drawn up by an independent designer or architect, potentially saving you thousands off your build price.
