NSBRC Easter Opening Hours

The NSBRC is open for visits on Good Friday 15th April & Saturday 16th April. Why not book a visit and chat to our friendly helpdesk experts? Our team of independent experts are on hand to offer FREE advice and support on every aspect of your project.


On Good Friday 16th April & Saturday 17th April, we will have our NSBRC Helpdesk Expert, Neil Davey, an Architectural Designer, on hand to chat to as you browse our educational exhibits at the Centre.

Neil has an engineering background with several years’ experience in Construction, including design, manufacture, project management and installation of Architectural metal work. In later years he had 17 years’ experience running his own Architectural design business designing extensions and new build houses and as a self-builder he has also designed and built three houses for his own use. Although Neil is officially retired, after 14 years of working on the NSBRC Help Desk, he is currently still offering his advice on a part time basis – and can often be found representing the NSBRC at external events, accompanied by his wife, Sue.

*Our Helpdesk is staffed from Wednesday - Sunday 10:00am - 17:00pm.
