NHBC Topsoil Guidelines

NHBC Topsoil Guidelines

Along with the BS3882:2015 standards ensuring topsoil quality within the industry, the National House Building Council (NHBC) has issued their own guidelines for standards of imported topsoil.

Whilst the only real stipulation within the NHBC 2013 guidelines is that any imported topsoil must meet BS3882:2015 guidelines, it is worth mentioning that this is a significant step for the house building industry.

Due to the fact that many new house builds are carried out on top brown field sites (i.e. sites were there may be industrial contamination), the NHBC have added the provision of clean and fully accountable topsoil to their list of requirements. In the past, house builders have been able to source local as-dug or muckaway type topsoils. However, the new 2013 regulations insist on clean BS3882:2015 compliant topsoil that must also comply with a list of environmental parameters and potential contaminants. These environmental parameters can vary from site to site specification but please refer to our "Technical Data" section on the left hand side for a print out of contaminants that were listed as part of the 2011 ODA specifications.

If your imported topsoil is fully compliant with BS3882:2015 standards and you have checked your supplier for due diligence (analysis dates, stockpile inspection etc.) then it is almost certainly guaranteed that the material will be suitable in the eyes of the NHBC.

The NHBC have become much more vigilant toward the topsoil elements of a new build, and will almost certainly carry out tests on the topsoil to ensure compliance. With removal of topsoil coming at a premium, the neccesstiy for clean, certified topsoil is now common place amongst house builders.

All of our BS3882:2015 topsoils (as dug and manufactured), including our ericaceous and low fertility blends are fully compliant against NHBC guidelines and carry a full list of potential contaminants.
