Novus Property Solutions has secured a number of refurbishment contracts across the education sector; it will work on universities and academies throughout the summer.
Novus’ team will be working with five academies over the course of the summer vacation period to avoid disruption to students and staff. Scheduled works range from minor redecoration projects to comprehensive refurbishments.
In Staffordshire, for example, the company will carry out a programme of fire compartmentation works at Chesterton Community Sports College, valued at £462,000. A £140,000 refurbishment for Holden Lane Primary School in Stoke-on-Trent has also been scheduled.
At Percy Hedley School in Newcastle, the team will work to improve existing facilities to enhance the learning and wellbeing of children with additional needs.
It will also be undertaking a £270,000 refurbishment, funded through the government’s Condition Improvement Fund, at Barnwell Academy. The team will remove the existing external wall cladding and treat asbestos before installing new external wall insulation (EWI) and windows.
In addition, employees from Novus’ Manchester office will be completing maintenance and painting works at Manchester Grammar School, having previously carried out redecoration works at the school’s elaborate Memorial Hall.
Alongside its work with schools and academies, Novus has secured contracts to refurbish student accommodation facilities at several universities. Boasting established partnerships with nationwide student accommodation providers Unite and UPP, the company plans to refurbish around 2,000 student bedrooms by the end of the year.
Its schedule includes the upgrade of two apartment buildings at the University of St. Andrews, and the refurbishment of communal kitchens at David Moxon Annexe and Chantry student residences at Southampton Solent University.
Teams from Novus will also be carrying out alterations as part of a refurbishment project at the University of Leicester’s Meadow Court Lodge. Kitchen replacements at Birmingham’s Aston University are also on the agenda, along with a programme of refurbishment works at the University of Worcester.
