Partner companies who can help with your project
As established members of the National Custom and Self-Build Association (NaCSBA) we are actively involved in helping to make self-build a mainstream choice for all those seeking a home of their own.
This also means we support the NaCSBA Code of Practice meaning that you should see:
• Truthful adverts and marketing materials
• Clear, helpful and adequate pre-contractual information
• Clear, fair contracts
• That staff know about and meet the code
• That members have an effective internal complaints procedure
• If problems cannot be resolved that the company will enter an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) process via NaCSBA or another provider.
Consumers can show their support for NaCSBA and help create more opportunities for the Custom and Self-build sector by registering as a user on the Self Build Portal. Registering allows you access to useful content including information on the Right to Build legislation. As a thank you, Consumer Supporters of NaCSBA can also benefit from competitive magazine subscription rates for Self Build & Design, Grand Designs and Build It.
More information is available at www.nacsba.org.uk.

To ensure your home is as well insulated as possible, the foundations should be highly insulated too. Our UK based partner company Advanced Foundation Technology supplies and installs a sophisticated Scandinavian raft foundation system. You can contract your foundation works directly with them or ask us to contract them to do the work on your behalf. We are delighted to recommend them for your project and they are also recommended by Kevin McCloud who lists them as one of his Green Heroes. We work with them to design and install foundations up to and including Passiv Haus standard. Call Olof Christiansen on 01457 863083 or 07950 166 390, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Something to consider is accessibility to your whole house by whoever is living in it, at all stages of their lives. While building regulations stipulate that you have to have accessible bathroom facilities on all levels, which all of our houses do, you might also want to consider making it easy to access upstairs and downstairs by adding a lift. Our partner, Aritco, the leading home lift specialists, can fit their lifts into many of our models, and have worked with our architects to ensure that the lift is then situated in the best place in each house. See Aritco’s 3D Home Lift Planner for more information on how their lifts can fit into our houses.
