Novus appointed to £1,547,000 sheltered housing refurbishment project

We have been appointed to a £1,547,000 contract to refurbish Haybridge Hall in Telford, Shropshire for The Wrekin Housing Trust.

We will re-build part of the existing building, which was originally built in 1870, to create 10 new apartments to be used as sheltered accommodation. Work includes the construction of two elevations tying into the existing retained facades, new internal walls, floors and roof will be formed, structural adaptations and creating a garden room with full height glass atrium.

A team of six Novus staff plus a number of sub-contractors will deliver the project, designed by Nicol Thomas. Starting on site in April 2019, with completion in Spring 2020.

The Wrekin Housing Trust owns and manages 12,500 homes across Shropshire and Staffordshire. An investment of £1.7 million was provided by The Wrekin Housing Trust, Telford and Wrekin Council and Homes England for the redevelopment.

Dean Povey, Build Operations Manager at Novus, said: “This project will grant a new lease of life to an excellent building that has been vacant for a number of years. The work will completely refresh the property, allowing it to provide fantastic local accommodation for older people for years to come.

“At Novus we’ve built up a wealth of experience in heritage refurbishment, allowing us to bring buildings back into use by incorporating modern facilities while preserving and enhancing original features.”

Matt Beckley, Project Manager at The Wrekin Housing Trust, said: “It is great that we have appointed Novus Property Solutions to see this exciting project come to final fruition. The works are now continuing at Haybridge Hall, where our plans involve the partial demolition of the old hall building, but the retention of its original facade.

“We are working hard to create a fantastic living space for future occupants. The building will include 10 retirement living apartments with a glazed courtyard and atrium making it a very pleasant place to live.”

    Easter is a time of year that can be even more challenging for people and families struggling to afford food, which is why our employees (or Novus Easter Bunnies) across the country wanted to play their part in donating Easter Eggs to local Food Banks.
