Novus Celebrates Topping Out Milestone at Midland Heart Project
July marked a milestone moment for Novus, as its new build retirement living scheme for Midland Heart in Lichfield, Staffordshire, reached the topping out stage.
Completing Building Works
Local MP Michael Fabricant joined Novus site manager Kevin Davies and Midland Heart representatives for a ceremony to celebrate the completion of the main building works, where he laid the final roof tile to the multi-million pound development.
Located on the corner of Rotten Row and Deans Croft in the heart of the city centre, the scheme – to be known as Bluebell Court – will provide 19 one-bedroom and ten two-bedroom apartments for over-55s, available for affordable rent.
Lee Hartley, Chief Operating Officer at Novus commented:
|“It has been a pleasure to deliver this project for our long-standing client Midland Heart. Our expertise in the retirement and healthcare sectors has enabled us to work hand-in-hand with Midland Heart to ensure future residents will enjoy a first-class facility that will enhance their lives and provide benefit to the local community.”||

Chris Miller, Director of Development at Midland Heart, said:
“We’ve worked in close partnership with many agencies, including Novus and Lichfield District Council, to bring our plans to fruition”
|“This landmark development will see us expand the provision of high quality, affordable services for over-55s in the area. We’ve worked in close partnership with many agencies, including Novus and Lichfield District Council, to bring our plans to fruition and are looking forward to welcoming our first residents in the coming months.”|
Michael Fabricant said:
|“This new building will be an attractive hub for Lichfield residents. Apartments of this kind provide a valuable home for those in middle and older age groups and being close to the very centre of the city and its shopping will mean that residents will be able to engage with city life and not be isolated. I was delighted to be asked to fix the final tile to this outstanding multi million pound development. The scheme is due to open in September 2021.”||
