Potton, a leader in self-build, has selected Terca to supply the clay facing bricks for its innovative new showhouse at Buildstore's permanent exhibition centre in Swindon. Opening in 2007, the 67,000 sq ft exhibition centre will feature the four-bedroom house as its centrepiece.
Working in partnership with Potton, Terca is playing a key role in the design of the showhouse by selecting the most appropriate clay bricks from its range of 200 products.
"We have enjoyed a very good relationship with Potton for a number of years, so have an in-depth knowledge of the company's requirements and the needs of the self-build market," says David Simpson, sales and marketing director at Terca. "We are working closely with Potton to select the right colours, shapes and textures that will give this showhouse its unique, authentic look.
"To complement the overall appearance of the house, we are also looking to use Koramic clay roof tiles for the vertical cladding and along the ridgeline."
Terry Mahoney, marketing projects manager at Potton adds: "Our aim is to inspire the self-build market, so we want to create an innovative property with character and warmth.
"We are confident that our partnership with Terca will result in a showhouse that will attract self-builders from all over the country."
