Close season refurb for Stoke City FC

The Premier League football stars at Stoke City will enjoy upgraded facilities in the 2016/17 season following a range of close season improvements which we'll be carrying out.

The club’s training complex at Clayton Wood has been the subject of a multi-million pound redevelopment project in recent months and we've been called in to deliver a number of new and upgraded facilities.

The scope of the project includes the creation a new ground maintenance workshop to improve the facilities available to ground staff, and the Clayton Wood complex itself will receive a brand new gate house giving enhanced security at the complex.

With a new season approaching, few areas of the training ground are more important than the treatment room where Stoke’s superstars receive vital medical attention, and we'll be building an extension so that club doctors can work more comfortably and efficiently.

The team will also construct and erect a new TV gantry so that the club’s training sessions, academy matches and behind-closed-doors fixtures can be filmed, and all the work at the training ground must be completed to the club’s extremely high standards.

Adam Williams, construction manager at Novus Property Solutions, said: “Stoke City’s training facilities are state-of-the-art and between May and July we will be working very hard to make them even better.

“The existing facility includes features such as zinc cladding and offset column designs, and we’ll ensure the new elements are entirely in keeping with the aesthetic and functional qualities that the club expects.”

Richard Smith, managing director of Stoke City Property, said: "As a club we are constantly looking at ways we can provide our players and staff, both at first team level and in the academy, with the best possible environment in which to work.

"The latest phase of redevelopment work represents another hugely significant investment in terms of the cost but it's necessary to continue to move the club forward."

£20,000 COMMUNITY LEARNING HUB OPENS AT DUDLEY SCHOOL

A new community learning hub has opened at Bromley Pensnett Primary School in Dudley following a £20,000 competition by contractor Novus. School Refurbishments Work Works at the school include a full refurbishment of the previously derelict building that saw our team of 10 install a new roof, repair and redecorate the interior and exterior, fit new steps, replace doors and flooring, and install a new kitchen. We have completed the hub in just two weeks as part of a competition by Novus to support worthwhile projects in the communities we operate in, as voted for by people in the area. We refurbished the school in Pensnett’s community learning centre, which has been closed for the past five years after falling into a state of disrepair. Learning Hub Services The new Novus Learning Hub offers a space where parents and carers can visit for support and advice. The building now provides the facilities for parents to complete health checks and weigh-in sessions and attend breast feeding clinics. It was chosen as part of the Novus’ ‘Big Five’ initiative to mark our fifth birthday, with £20,000 being spent on five individual local community projects across the UK. The project was also made possible by donations from Novus’ supply chain from Crown Paints, Eurocell, Howdens Joinery and Acorn Spencer. Head Teacher Feedback Helen Tomlinson, headteacher at Bromley Pensnett Primary School, said: “The new Novus Learning Hub provides a centre for our community that it was once lacking. We’re grateful to Novus for taking the building out of its derelict state and refurbishing it to the highest standards. “Everyone at the school is really happy with the finished project and we’re looking forward to seeing the ongoing benefits it will bring to the community.” Site Supervisor Feedback Dani Roberts-Wright, site supervisor at Novus, said: “Delivering the new Novus Learning Hub at Bromley Pensnett school was an honour to work on and we’re all really pleased with the final results. “As part of our commitment to the communities we operate in we’ve been working hard to deliver projects that local people could be proud of and use for years to come. This new community centre achieves that.” Bromley Pensnett Primary School Bromley Pensnett Primary School caters for 320 children aged between three and 11 years old in Pensnett and the surrounding areas. In 2015 it partnered with drb Ignite Multi Academy Trust to become a sponsored academy.
