Novus opens new HQ in Stoke-on-Trent
02 November, 2016
We've marked six decades of business in Stoke-on-Trent with the opening of our brand new headquarters at Five Towns House.
Having first moved to Stoke in the forties, we've have been based at purpose-built facilities in Fenton since 1957, but due to the growth of the company in the last few years, we've outgrown the original facility and for a number of years teams of staff have occupied a multitude of buildings in the vicinity.
We undertook extensive consultation process with staff during the design and planning stages of the new facility, which will house 100 operational and core service staff.
We've created a modern, versatile workspace that manages to incorporate our heritage and our ties to the local area.
The building is fully climate controlled, features energy-saving LED lighting throughout, and has inspirational images of local enterprise, innovation and sporting heroes displayed throughout its meeting rooms.
Stuart Seddon, chairman of Novus Property Solutions, said: "We wanted to modernise our ways of working and create an attractive environment in a better-equipped facility that would enable all our local teams to collaborate together under one roof.
"The new building is the head office of our business and we are proud of our long association with the Stoke-on-Trent area. Our new home will help to further strengthen our reputation when clients come to visit and see the breadth of our expertise.
"There's no guarantee we won't outgrow our new offices, but our shareholders have a long history in this part of the country, and we have never considered moving away from the area."
