BuildStore - self build, renovation & home improvement

The Wolseley House

Wolseley Building

The 'Wolseley House' had its first look at from visitors at the Big Green Homes Show in October and did not disappoint.

The building gives visitors the rare opportunity to enter a house in its construction stages and to see state-of-the-art sustainable technologies in-situ.

The project consists of a 1,500sq ft, two-storey Frame Wise timber frame house and is open for visitors to explore at pre fit-out stage. The Wolseley House particularly focuses on sustainable technologies. Many of these are visible as either finished or semi-exposed products, revealing to visitors the elements required for installation.

Tim Doherty, managing director - BuildStore Financial Services Ltd, said: "We are thrilled to have Wolseley coming to exhibit at the Centre. As one of our key partners, we believe its offering to TradeCard members and self builders is exceptional. To have the products displayed in our National Self Build & Renovation Centre in this way will help the self builder to understand the benefits of working with a merchant to buy building materials."

Grant Richardson, sales director - Wolseley's heavyside division, added: "The Wolseley offering really covers all aspects of the self build programme - from site preparation to landscaping. "The house will pay particular attention to sustainable building products - demonstrating how these new technologies can be implemented in the home and provide real environmental and financial benefits to self-builders' and renovators' projects."

Products from Wolseley's Plumb Center, Drain Center, Build Center, Electric Center, Encon and Bathstore businesses will all be present in the house - highlighting the range of products and technologies available from Wolseley, literally under one roof.

The house also features a branch area, manned by a dedicated branch manager - Tony Belsten who can take orders for product, as well as look at plans, provide quotations and discuss project options.

Also showcased is astylish Moores kitchen and Bathstore showroom featuring Velux windows, vaulted ceilings with the internal beams displayed and kitchen and bathroom design services are available.

The ground floor of the building features a theatre in which seminars will be held. There will be a full seminar programme in place to provide self builders with a wealth of information on products and practices, and insight into the various stages of the construction of the house.
