We presented Digitising Defects at NHBC ‘Building for Tomorrow’

Our CEO and co-founder, James Farrell, was a speaker at seven events around the country for the National House-Building Council (NHBC) Building for Tomorrow 2023. He began the talks in Edinburgh on March 7 and ended in Bolton on March 30.

At Building for Tomorrow 2023, James Farrell was on stage as part of a panel discussion and Q/A alongside the Head of Claims Consumer Strategy at the NHBC Kim Carter, the Head of the New Homes Ombudsman, Alison MacDougall and the Chief Executive Officer of the New Homes Quality Board, Leon Livermore.

The focus of James’ presentation was ‘Digitising Defects’, this included topics such as data to drive efficiency and growth, defects and the media, handovers and the homeowners portal and compliance and complaints. For the full presentation please click here.


As this is the first time we have participated in such an event, we felt it was important to present on stage and engage with industry leaders. Our overarching message throughout the events is for Housebuilders and Housing Associations to embrace technology, improve communication and simplify their management.

The events gave us an opportunity to showcase clixifix® to key individuals within the housebuilders and housing association sectors and demonstrate how our software could integrate into their business.

The biggest issues that clixifix® solves for housebuilders and housing associations is improving communication, enhancing reports and reducing human errors. On the flip side many businesses in the housing sector can be resistant to change, this is up to our customer care team to provide them with the relevant information that supports a smooth integration.


What is Building for Tomorrow?

Hosted by the NHBC, Building for Tomorrow 2023 was an opportunity for industry experts to present and discuss topics like FLOS, NHBC Standards and Future Home Standards.

The main focus of this years ‘Building for Tomorrow’ was delivering for homeowners on the road to zero carbon. The road to net zero will include plugging into the future, biodiversity in new housing developments, modern methods of construction and the future of home heating. The events provided strategies and solutions to this challenge along with the very latest industry changes emerging from the Building Safety Act.
