N&C Nicobond First to Fully Use TTA Headquarters

N&C Nicobond, part of the Nicholls & Clarke Group are the first company to get the best out of the conference facilities at The Tile Association’s new headquarters.

A large boardroom and training room, as well as a smaller meeting room, are all available to hire at the Staffordshire HQ. And on Friday 28th November, N&C Nicobond made full use of the impressive facilities with a seminar on the benefits of using wet rooms in social housing.

Twenty-five people attended the seminar, including representatives from Wulvern Housing Association, Salford City Council and contractors and fixers from across the Midlands.

The TTA’s large conservatory-style training room became a demonstration area for the day, with the boardroom — which can seat up to 20 people — acting as an information-sharing centre.

Shaun Cardwell, National Business Development Manager for Nicholls & Clarke Group said: “The seminar was hugely successful and gave everyone who attended the knowledge to install a complete wet room system. The TTA headquarters worked really well for our event and we received great feedback.

“As N&C are the only UK company who actually manufacture every component that goes into our total wetroom system. This fact enables us to overcome all of the areas of potential failure within other systems, and instead offer total peace of mind to both specifiers & fitters. N&C Chair the UK wetroom committee, this coupled with our sector experience and technical knowledge set us far apart from others allowing N&C to offer lifetime guarantees.”

Bob Turnbull, Senior Building Surveyor for Salford City Council, attended the seminar and said he is hoping to incorporate N&C’s solution into their new developments. He said: “We primarily use moveable seats over fixed wet room seats to give more freedom. We hope that N&C’s tile and wet room range can help us to achieve this further.”

The boardroom, training room and meeting room at the TTA’s headquarters in Stone, Staffordshire, are all available to hire. The meeting room is free to TTA members for half a day and is just £50 for a full day. More information and full discounted rates for TTA members are available at

The headquarters are in an easily accessible location in the heart of the Midlands, with good rail and road links. Lots of free parking is also available.
