Six Successful Developments With Bricks

Published by Jerry Rihll, 2023
Five years on and six development projects later, this serial property developer highlights the key reasons why she continues to work with Bricks.

In 2017 Beverley was looking for finance to build three new luxury homes in South Devon. When her high street bank declined her local finance broker suggested Bricks.

Bricks Director Jerry Rihll said, “The thing that impressed me most about Beverley was when she appeared from a trench in safety boots I knew we were dealing with a professional hands-on developer.”
Beverley started building houses in 1986 at just 25 years old, having used her own savings and a small bank loan to purchase land in Bovey Tracey where she build her first house. Since then she has gone on to build almost 300 homes across Devon. Jerry said: “This level of experience and hand-on approach appealed to us as we looked to support Beverley on her first development with Bricks.”

Beverley said: “Bricks fully understands the construction industry, which makes it that much easier as a developer to communicate with their team and ensure we have the right funding for each project. They also keep paperwork to a minimum which saves both time and money allowing us to focus on building the homes to a high standard rather than simply ticking boxes. Bricks are simply easy to deal with and supportive of new projects.”

Bricks continues to support Beverley and other independent developers despite the complex issues currently facing the construction industry, including the lack of suitable sites, the ongoing delays in planning and the new updates to building regulations.
Beverley continues her search for new opportunities and her relationship with Bricks allows her to move quickly when the right opportunity arises.
