N.F. Coverdale Ltd is a family owned Company formed in 1987 that specialise in the repair, restoration and renovation of period properties and listed buildings including churches, mills, domestic and commercial properties.
Following a period of controlled expansion the company has grown to have a team of 30 experienced, highly skilled employees as well as many regular specialist sub-contractors allowing them operate as main contractors and manage projects ranging from a few pounds to £2 million.
Nigel and his team where delighted to win a contract to undertake full refurbishment works at The Gunton Arms Hotel. As the building is on a conservation area there were several imperative conditions which had to be applied, these involved working closely with building control, building conservation and planning however over 18 months the contract was completed and the building was a finalist in the LABC Best Commercial Property Award for the high standard of design, construction and workmanship undertaken during the renovation, refurbishment and extension of the property. The Graham Allen Award was presented to N.F.Coverdale Ltd from the North Norfolk District Council which is an award that recognises significant contribution to the conservation and enhancement of the Built Environment in the district during 2011/2012.
Since January 2012 employees of N.F.Coverdale Ltd have been working on Folgate Farm which started as a small contract for a single barn conversion and farmhouse renovation. However this has grown and since included constructing a single story link extension to join the two buildings as well as various other extensions, brick and flint boundary walls, a large garage and landscaping works bringing the total contract to just under £2 million pounds.
The company also embarked up on a project with Sloley Lodge, a recent renovation which was completed twelve months ago and took place over a period of nine months. Sloley Lodge began as an entirely derelict, five bedroomed manor house and thanks to a great relationship between the company, client and the interior designer they formed a successful design and build project worth around £750,000.

“Over the past 27 years we gained a reputation for the quality of service we provide, and we are pleased to see many of our clients come back to us time and time again to have further work undertaken or to see whether they can pass our details on to their friends and relatives, this is where our company motto ‘Building upon Reputation’ becomes so important to everyone involved in the company. Being nominated for this award came as a complete surprise for which I am very grateful for North Norfolk District Council for considering us and putting in an application.”
