North Ayrshire Council – Castle Park Primary
Novus Property Solutions has successfully delivered a range of internal alterations at Castlepark Primary School during the summer holidays.
The works began in the final two weeks of the summer term, with operatives from Novus hard carrying out extensive upgrades including the creation of a new staff resource base, a new library and two new classrooms at the Irvine school.
North Ayrshire Council has utilised Novus’ services in the past and the firm’s long experience of delivering refurbishments in the live environment helped to inform the plans for the school.
Before the students left for their summer holidays, work began on new partitions, internal doors, and screens, as well as mechanical and electrical alterations, and the project team from Novus delivered a short health and safety talk to ensure everyone using the school building could do so safely.
Novus has previously delivered similar alterations at St Andrews University, Glasgow Caledonia University, and George Watson’s College, and the team is on schedule to complete the £80,000 programme of works in time for staff and pupils of Castlepark returning in mid-August.
Operations manager at Novus Property Solutions, said: “Integral members of the Novus team for this contract attended Castlepark in June to talk to the staff and pupils.
“Quantity surveyor Chris Meechan, social and community officer Derek Smith and I delivered a short talk to pupils on the “do’s and don’ts” to watch out for when a construction site is nearby, and we are delighted to say that the initial phase of work passed without incident.”
