Novus Property Solutions recently had two weeks to redecorate an Independent Living Scheme in Dunstable prior to a visit from Her Majesty the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip.
Central Bedforshire Council run Priory View, which includes 83 individual apartments, five recreational lounges, a café, bar and a restaurant, salon, rooftop garden and spa therapy rooms.
Novus was called in to refresh the décor throughout Priory View to make sure the building was at tis best for the royal visit.
Nine Novus operatives worked carried out a full internal redecoration, revitalising the paintwork in the health spa, communal corridors, restaurant, library, bar area and reception to ensure Priory View was ready to welcome its visitors.
The work was completed in under two weeks from start to finish – all while the Independent Living Scheme remained full furnished and fully operational.
Novus called an emergency specification meeting with Crown Trade to guarantee a perfect colour match for the existing colours used in the communal areas. Minor maintenance and repair works were also carried out by the team, including laying new turf to the front of the building and unblocking roof drainage, in addition to fitting corner protectors, changing light bulbs and fitting backing protection on to the walls.
Novus also worked with Crown Trade to create a bench made entirely from recycled paint tins used on the job.
Tony Ronayne, operations manager at Novus Property Solutions commented: “This was a particularly challenging project due to the scale of the works required with such a short notice period before we were due to start. I’m very proud of the whole team who all pulled together and worked so efficiently to ensure we delivered the high standard of work within budget and timescale.”
