NSBRC visitor's finished living room area

Welcome to the NSBRC Case Studies hub.

The National Self Build and Renovation Centre are proud to have supported over 225,000 home-building projects and are the UK’s only permanent exhibition Centre to inform, educate and inspire self builders and home renovators.  

Here you can read about Visitors of the Centre who have been inspired by the resources at the NSBRC, be it our popular National Self Build and Renovation Shows, or the array of Training Courses and Workshops run throughout the year, many have gone on to successfully complete a construction project. Why not take a look and see how the NSBRC can help you with your project?

If you’ve recently completed your project and feel the NSBRC has helped you, we are pleased to offer the opportunity for you to feature as an exclusive Case Study for the NSBRC, please call us on 0345 223 4455 or email marketing@nsbrc.co.uk.
