I had planning permission for a two-storey extension to my back of my house, including a wet room. I invited 4 builders in to quote – two were plain scary and unprofessional, and two I felt confident they were responsible experienced businesses. Out of those two Mortar & Co not only came in at the better price but that also included a project manager role which took the burden from me as I had no idea what I was doing.
I very quickly became incredibly relieved that I had gone down the project manager path as it turned out that my architect was awful and had not identified a major drain issue, measurements were all over the place, and the new upstairs ceiling was so badly designed it would have broken my heart if those plans had been carried through. Mortar & Co took the reins, tackled the architect, got me my money back, fixed all the issues and created a perfect build. They even kept smiling when I changed my mind multiple times along the way – and found ways to give me what I wanted.
I firmly believe that without the owner project managing my build and his team of very experienced tradesmen on the ground, following the architect’s ridiculous specs, my build would been an expensive heart breaking disaster. Thank you Mortar & Co.

We had the pleasure of using Mortar & Co's services to project manage and procure contractors for our project which was a total re-design of the ground floor of our property, including conversion to the garage and extensions to the front and rear of the property.
As we had to deviate from the original architects plans in few areas this threw up a few issues which were brought to my attention by Sege, and after receiving guidance and having discussions were resolved. Having Sege manage the project and take on board the stress of dealing with building control was a pleasure, he has always been available on the phone when we had questions and any problems during construction were handled with professionalism. We now have a beautifully spacious ground floor to enjoy which we’re very happy with thanks to Sege and Mortar & Co.

Many thanks to Sege Rosella and Mortar & Co for managing the build of our extension.
Sege made our lives so much easier by dealing with Building Control and ensuring that the build was to the standards required. He was prompt and decisive in dealing with any issues that arose. Sege was very reassuring and always found time to visit or update us on progress. The Mortar & Co tradesmen were professional, friendly and respectful of our home and the work they were doing.
If anyone is thinking of an extension to their property, we would have no hesitation in saying consider Sege and Mortar & Co. Let them take the strain while you relax.
- Mike & Jacky (Thraptson)
First experience of any building work and our extension to kitchen/diner was a daunting big project for us. However, was guided by Project Manager Sege Rosella. Always able to offer advice or solutions for the build including extra works and finishes. Extension been professionally built, delivered to specifications as required, importantly completed on time and we are “over the moon” with the final result – those who have since visited are equally impressed with the workmanship. We welcomed all to our home and have no hesitation in recommending Sege as Project Manager together with his skilled tradesmen at Mortar and Co.
Kind regards David & Marianne (Irthlingborough)
I have dealt with Sege and the team at Mortar & Co for several years now, the first project was an extension to my care home which included seven new bedrooms with ensuite over two floors, a new dining room, conservatory and outbuilding for laundry facilities.
Last year they rewired and redecorated the original part of the care home and more recently this year they converted a disused outbuilding we had into a staff room and visitors' toilet.
For each project they delivered what was asked with minimal disruption to my staff and more importantly to my residents. I will continue to use Mortar & Co for any of my future building projects as they provide support from initial concept right to the end of construction.

“We recently used Mortar & Co for a complete renovation and large extension. Sege and his contractors delivered us a beautiful home and worked closely with us, helping tirelessly with any problems that arose… and since it was during the initial lockdown, there were a few!
They went out of their way on a daily basis to ensure we were as comfortable as possible and were unfailingly friendly and approachable when we had any queries or concerns.
We would certainly use Mortar & Co again and highly recommend them.”
- Scott and Sarah Hawkes
“Made the best decision having Mortar & Co build my extension. From start to completion the project of building my two storey extension went smoothly for me, this was down to the management by Sege and his team.
I was kept informed every step of the way and knew exactly what would happen and when. The guys worked really hard and completed a week early.
Sege would accept only the best in the work done and the finished extension was exactly what I wanted.”
"My project, although relatively small, encountered a few delays during planning due to the need for ecological reports.
Mortar & Co took the pressure off myself by taking control of the liaising to ensure actions were timely and people were held to account.
I am now enjoying a watertight re-roofed barn and can sit back and consider future plans for its use. Many thanks Sege!"

"Sege may be known for bringing children’s dreams to life on TV, but with the incredible work he’s done for Dream Hatcher, he’s made this workspace just as exciting and inspiring for its adult occupants.
We can’t wait to open our doors!"
