What Did these Works Involve?

These extensive refurbishments involved the re-modelling and modernisation of the building to the Live Smart specification.

This included:

        • Complete redecoration
        • New ceiling installation
        • New floor coverings
        • The installation of new compliant flat entrance fire doors,
        • Refurbishment of the other doors to ensure an aesthetic continuity.

Fire Door Installation

The Fire Doors are fitted to the client’s specification FD30 Oak Veneers.

They were installed by our BM Trada Q-Mark trained operatives with certification undertaken by Gary Purdy – our Novus BM Trada Q Mark Supervisor who holds certification for Installation and Maintenance.

Internal Re-Modelling

The internal re-modelling works consisted of internal partition removal that created an enlarged lounge area and redesigned kitchen. This resulted in a wide open-plan format.

Our team also refurbished and enlarged one of the managers\’ flats to create a 1-bed flat on the first floor and a new office to ground floor.

This also included an open plan reception area and new main entrance to the building.

The External Works

Externally, the works comprise the creation of an additional carpark that utilises an unused area of garden, refurbishment of entrance driveway, and the installation of a new electronic card entry system.

Additionally, the team installed 2 new aluminium canopy entrances and a new scooter store for residents’ use. Add to this, the construction of a new access ramp to the lounge.

As part of our social value commitments, Novus added a new patio BBQ area for the residents of The Beeches located away from the main building.
