Novus completes £4.7m refurbishment with minimum disruption

  • 26 Jul 2017

Novus Property Solutions has completed a £4.7 million refurbishment of two industrial buildings at the Michelin tyre plant in Stoke-on-Trent. 

The project, which took 32 weeks to complete, was carefully planned and executed by Novus to ensure the factory was able to continue with its daily operations and supply of products to the UK market.

Novus Michellin factoryThe site’s existing warehouse building was transformed into a national logistics centre, while the team also created new high quality office facilities as well as a bespoke main entrance area to the factory site.

Novus also reconfigured the existing delivery bays, including new insulated clad dock levellers and remodelled access routing, to optimise workflow. The work was phased to enable the building to remain live during the work and minimise disruption.

Novus also installed new sprinkler systems, was involved in works on fire compartmentation, automatic smoke ventilation and energy efficient lighting and worked on the site’s existing fie sprinkler lagoons and two pump houses to modernise them.

Novus managed the replacement of sprinkler heads in a fully live environment – which was phased for minimum disruption.

Lee Hartley, director at Novus Property Solutions, said: “The delivery team, together with out key sub-contract trades, have worked tirelessly to maintain the programme and achieve the scheduled completion.”
