NHBC welcomes Taylor Lane Timber Frame Limited to NHBC Accepts –

successfully building confidence in innovative construction


NHBC, the UK’s leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes, is delighted to welcome Taylor Lane Timber Frame Limited to NHBC Accepts with its Ultimate and Advanced closed panel timber frame systems.


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.


Any 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 Technical Innovation Manager, Chris Hall said: “We are delighted to welcome Taylor Lane Timber Frame Limited to NHBC Accepts. We know from feedback that once a 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 system 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 systems can meet and sometimes exceed the same high standards of quality and durability as traditionally-built homes.”


Even once accepted, NHBC’s Innovation team continue to review quality through factory and site inspections and seek feedback from those working with the system on site. This knowledge is shared with the owners to help continually improve their system.


We are very proud that after rigorous assessment, the NHBC has awarded both our Advanced and Ultimate timber frame panel systems the NHBC Accept certificate. We know we manufacture high quality products, and now our customers can feel assured of this too.

Jon Lane, MD of Taylor Lane
