Top marks for Novus high school refurb

Novus Property Solutions has delivered a grade A refurbishment to the dining areas of Biddulph High School in Stoke-on-Trent.

The housebuilder updated the decoration and lighting of the spaces, which are used by hundreds of children every day.

A team from Novus spent a total of eight weeks delivering the £160,000 upgrade, following a successful bid by the school to the Academy Condition Improvement Fund. The bid included the refurbishment of the school’s existing dining area, and the creation of a new outdoor dining area.

A new suspended tile ceiling was installed in the school’s cafeteria, along with LED lighting in the ceiling, while a new non-slip vinyl floor was laid to create a safer environment for students and staff using the area. The space was given a full redecoration, including MDF lining on the walls, and Novus also upgraded the heating system and renewed the shutters in the dining room’s serving area.

The result of the refurbishment is a clean, modern, hygienic dining area that can accommodate more people than ever thanks to the addition of the new external seating.
