This week, NZB successfully passed a surveillance visit from BOPAS (Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme) in our manufacturing unit. The Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme is a risk based evaluation which demonstrates to funders, lenders, valuers and purchasers that homes built from non-traditional methods and materials will stand the test of time for at least 60 years.
For funders and lenders, it provides confidence that the construction system is fit for purpose and removes the uncertainty of the construction for valuation purposes. This removes the risk of mortgages for developers being declined and improves the business and technical risks to manufacturers of the construction system.
Along with the above benefits, the BOPAS accreditation can offer the home/building owner lower life cycle costs and should there be any structural defects during the initial 10/12 period, access to latent defect insurance.
The team from BOPAS were thorough in their visit and were able to pass NZB without any non-conformances which is a fantastic achievement. This accreditation provides assurance that as a supplier, we deliver a construction system in a consistent and competent manner, always working to contract specifications.
NZB’s continuation of the BOPAS accreditations is driven by our continuous cross-functional work whilst maintaining the highest level of quality assurance.
