(Reuters) – Britain’s second-largest housebuilder Persimmon <PSN.L> reported lower first-half revenue on Thursday after its greater focus on quality and improving customer service slowed down order intake.

The FTSE 100 company, which builds homes in more than 350 locations in the UK, said revenue fell 4.5% to 1.75 billion pounds for the six months ending June 30.
