Novus Property Solutions has won a contract to create a new eco-building on the site of an outward bound education centre in Derbyshire, having been named main contractor by Mount Cook Property Limited.

Due to be completed in June 2016, the new eco-building will be manufactured using Derbyshire stone from local quarries and will be built to accommodate up to 130 visitors.

The wheelchair-accessible building will feature solar panels that will generate electricity and heat the building’s water supply, whilst rainwater will be channelled by the building’s design and be used to flush toilets.

The building will be clad in Derbyshire stone and will feature no exposed brickwork to ensure it is sympathetic with the surrounding environment. 

It will be primarily used to educate young people about sustainability and wildlife; and will also feature sleeping accommodation, catering facilities and a climbing wall.

Mount Cook chose Novus for the £2.5 million project due to the company’s long history of community building projects and strong background in corporate social responsibility.

Colin Adams, director at Mount Cook, commented: “There are a lot of ethical similarities in what we aspire to do and what Novus already does. We hope that the partnership will lead to a long working relationship that benefits us through the quality of their work, and also benefits Novus through the many links that we can provide with charities and youth projects.

We had other tenders, but the credibility and the ethical dimension of Novus’ work made them stand out as unique, and we felt very comfortable in awarding them with the contract. We are so pleased to have found such an ideal fit.”
