Accreditations

N.H.B.C. Registered - A1 Rated
NHBC
The N.H.B.C. are the standard setting body and the leading warranty provider for new and newly constructed homes.  They are independent of Government and builders, with no Shareholders, so we can be confident a completely impartial assessment of our product is being carried out.  It is the aim of the N.H.B.C. to provide services varying in nature to raise the standards in housing and construction, an ethos that Westpoint Construction completely subscribes to.
Westpoint Construction has been an N.H.B.C. registered house builder since 1991.  We are A1 rated which is the highest available rating and this can only be achieved by continually delivering quality projects over the term of our registration.  This rating is a result of minimising potential post-handover defects through both design processes and first-rate on site build practices.
N.H.B.C. Safemark Approved
NHBC Registration

Westpoint Construction regards on site Health & Safety as one of the most critical areas in construction and invests significant time and money in measuring site performance in this area.  The Company is N.H.B.C. Safemark approved which means we have demonstrated the required level of competence and are accredited to the N.H.B.C. Contractor Health & Safety Competence Assessment Scheme (Safemark).

We also employ the N.H.B.C. to undertake monthly comprehensive site inspections that measure the quality of method statements, risk assessments and review all areas of on site operations.  The N.H.B.C. inspector then reports on how on site processes and procedures could be improved.  The inspection process itself has 50 categories in which the assessor scores the project then again, where necessary, provides guidance for future improvement in the form of written observations and recommendations.  The performance of each project is then reviewed at separate meetings, normally at Head Office, where the assessments and recommendations are discussed in detail with our Projects Director.  The Projects Director then becomes directly responsible for the implementation of any recommendations at site level.

The N.H.B.C Safemark Scheme is the equivalent to C.H.A.S. the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme.
