About Us

We have been using lime in North Wales for eighteen years now, so we know our stuff!  We came into the business through our interest in vernacular architecture, a concern for the environment and through working on our own restoration projects – we love old buildings and want to make the very best choices when it comes to their repair and conservation.  If you call us you will get friendly support and advice, and you can look at the materials in situ, in our ongoing restoration of Plas Tirion manor house and outlying buildings or learn about our experience through our updates.

Staff photo 2013NBC was founded by Ned and Sophie Scharer. Tom and James started as apprentice lime plasterers and with Hefin Hughes acting as project manager make up our lime-works team.  Martin joined us this year to run the office and Plas Tirion site and Trebor has a workshop on site providing traditional carpentry and joinery.  We have been helped enormously by other family members as the business has continued to grow.
