Norcroft Energy has just completed an unusual electrical project at The Laithe, a beautiful barn conversion in Hoylandswaine dating back over 500 years.
Owners of The Laithe, Greg and Heather Parkin, have pushed design boundaries to make a property in Hoylandswaine their ‘forever’ house. With the help of local architect Andrew Brown, they designed an ultramodern and environmentally friendly extension underground, providing extra living space for their growing family. Underground extensions are becoming increasingly popular for homeowners who are looking to extend without altering their property’s existing appearance. But this is unheard of in Hoylandswaine and The Laithe has been the talk of the village for the last 6 months.
Norcroft Energy were the chosen electrical contractors, carrying out all the electrical work for the new underground extension. This included wiring for underfloor heating, internal LED feature lighting, sound system and mood lighting, LED garden lighting, heat recovery ventilation system and all wiring for the new underground pumping system and fire safety system.
Greg Parkin said, “We chose Norcroft Energy to carry out this work as we wanted to use local contractors who were well respected in the area. Norcroft were excellent and the workmanship was top notch. Philip was always willing to work with us to design the best solution for what was a very peculiar scheme. His experience and insight was essential. He also worked well with all other contractors. I would, and have already recommended Norcroft to others.”
Philip Mosley, Managing Director at Norcroft Energy added, “We were really pleased when we were asked to be the electrical contractors for this project. The installation was completed with one eye on the future running costs of the property. The final result is something Greg and Heather should be very proud of.”
