Mr & Mrs J Ball

What an outstanding outcome; we could not be happier! Nicholls Countryside Construction was retained by us under a cost-plus contract to complete a challenging three-part project which included:

  • Full restoration of our 16th century Grade II listed Sussex farmhouse, including the new construction of a large period-style inglenook fireplace and chimney
  • Construction of a new 140 sq. meter oak beam pool house, with full renovation of the swimming pool and landscaping of the surrounding area
  • Excavation and construction of a 100 sq.meter underground wine cellar, tasting room and caterer’s kitchen, with stairway access from the main house

Bottom line: this complicated 2-year project was completed within budget to the highest of standards (and would have been completed on schedule if we hadn’t kept adding extras!) Nicholls is a very capable and specialized regional construction company. Operational for over 20 years and with extensive experience in handling projects of any size, Nicholls delivers excellence throughout all the stages of a project from the initial design to final completion. Richard Nicholls has developed an impressive and rare company culture at NCC that reinforces total professionalism, teamwork and excellence, thereby delivering outstanding results for their clients. Not only are all of NCC’s staff expert in their respective fields, but they go the extra mile and take great pride in their work. They are also genuinely nice people and easy to work with. As a demanding client with very high expectations, we were apprehensive about embarking on our project, but soon became at ease working primarily with Richard, Jonny, Hannah and Ian. We have no reservations in recommending NCC. We would use them again in a heartbeat!”
