Novus to deliver new apartments at sheltered accommodation scheme in Solihull

Contractor Novus has been appointed to deliver a £1.29m project to build 13 new two-bedroom apartments at a sheltered accommodation scheme in Solihull.

The development, for the Sir Josiah Mason Trust, will see Novus deliver a full refurbishment at Mason House in Shirley.

The 13-month project will include the construction of a new extension, one half being two-storey while the other half is an additional floor over the existing one-storey property which will involve underpinning the existing foundations.

The construction will also provide a new reception area and communal space as well as making a range of improvements to the building’s existing corridors. On the new roof, there will be new PV solar panels installed to generate hot water for the apartments.

The Josiah Mason Trust provides sheltered accommodation, residential care and extra care housing to over 200 people across the West Midlands.

Mark Foxall, contracts manager at Novus Property Solutions, said: “Our work with the Sir Josiah Mason Trust will allow the charity to deliver an even greater level of service to its residents in Solihull. This is an exciting project for Novus and we’re looking forward to building on our relationship with Josiah Mason.”

David Healey, chief executive at the Sir Josiah Mason Trust, said: “The new frontage and refurbishment of our Mason House apartments will breathe fresh life into the scheme and allow us to help more people in the community.

“This is the first major development undertaken by the trust in recent years and we’re looking forward to seeing it finished next year.”
