Novus refreshes and refurbishes Staffordshire academy

  • 25 Apr 2017

Novus Property Solutions has completed a two-stage refurbishment at an academy in Burton-Upon-Trent.

The de Ferrers Academy caters for over 2,100 11-18 year-olds in Staffordshire. The academy is a founder member of a multi-academy trust, known as the de Ferrers Trust, and opens its doors to the community through facility hire for a wide range of activities and even offers membership to its Fitness Suite to the public.

In recent years, Novus has redecorated the school’s interior and therefore was the ideal choice for the old caretaker’s on-site house remodelled and converted into a multi-purpose office space for the de Ferrers Trust.

The bungalow was reconfigured to create three modern office rooms and additional communal areas to provide meeting rooms and a flexible working environment. The building was also adapted to meet current Building Standards, including a redesign of the entrance way.

The Novus team redecorated the exterior render of the bungalow and a dedicated parking space was created specifically for the new offices. The team also removed existing mobile units before starting the remodelling works.

A new driveway and overflow parking area were created too, with Novus using specialist thermoplastic line-marking for the demarcation of bays and pedestrian walkways. Therefore, diverting traffic away from the main school building and improving safety for students.

Gary Clay, operations manager at Novus Property Solutions said: “this was one of the first major projects we’ve completed for the academy and we were delighted to be able to pass on savings, in order to deliver the works on time and under budget.”
