Gambling retailer bets on Novus for a winning refurbishment
We've completed an extensive refurbishment project for global online gambling retailer, bet365.

Originally founded in Stoke-on-Trent in 2000, bet365 has grown into one of the world’s largest online gambling companies employing over 4,000 staff. In 2016 bet365 opened a new purpose-built office in Stoke to accommodate business operations in the city. In addition to commercial office space, the company estate in Stoke also includes residential properties to house company employees from overseas.   
 
This summer we undertook a 12-week refurbishment project for bet365, which saw two industrial units near the company’s new office transformed to create one large warehouse area with adjoining workshops. The project was designed by Stoke-on-Trent based architects Wood Goldstraw Yorath.
 
The team reconfigured the layout of the existing buildings to create one large usable space. As part of the project a first floor mezzanine, designed to house a breakout area with fitted kitchen and offices, was installed while welfare facilities with staff shower and changing areas were installed on the ground floor.
 
The works included the removal of existing loadbearing partitions and floor, alongside the construction of new partition walls, timber flooring and ceilings. We also carried out drainage, mechanical and electrical works as well as plastering before installing all new fixtures and fittings and redecorating throughout.
 
As the scope of the works was so extensive and the deadline tight, numerous different trades were required to work simultaneously alongside each other within the tight footprint of the site. The team carefully co-ordinated with all its trades to make works as efficient as possible on site and ensure the deadline was achieved.
