Northcot Brick: Build It Award Winner 2020!
Northcot Brick are delighted to announce they have scooped another Build It Award for Best Brick Home!

Northcot House is situated in the Hertfordshire village of Pirton. They first welcomed owners Wayne and Nicky Turner to the works in 2016. With planning permission to build their dream home, their vision was to make Northcot House look like a working 19th century farmhouse.

Northcot Brick worked closely with Wayne and Nicky and after many visits to the works and after several sample walls were built, they eventually created a bespoke blend of bricks that ticked all the right boxes.

Aperio Audio Visual: Self Build Case Study
Aperio Audio Visual recently worked closely with Helen and Tom, from pre-wire planning, through to installation, handover and ongoing service.

Helen said: “It’s an absolute joy once the home automation is all set up and working how you want it; it’s so easy to operate. I’d wholeheartedly recommend Aperio Audio Visual because they listened and looked at how we live our lives before advising us on what we needed. They were flexible in what they were offering and gave advice on how to get the most for our money.
