Novus Property Solutions has marked six decades of business in Stoke-on-Trent with the opening of its brand new headquarters at Five Towns House.
The national maintenance, refurbishment and new build contractor first moved to Stoke in the forties and has occupied purpose-built facilities in Fenton since 1957, but the company’s growth in the last few years has seen its staff outgrow the original facility and for a number of years teams of staff have occupied a multitude of buildings in the vicinity.
The family-owned business engaged in an extensive consultation process with Novus staff during the design and planning stages of the new facility, which will house 100 operational and core service staff.
The company has created a modern, versatile workspace that manages to incorporate the heritage of the firm and its ties to the local area.
The building is fully climate controlled, features energy-saving LED lighting throughout, and has inspirational images of local enterprise, innovation and sporting heroes displayed throughout its meeting rooms.
Stuart Seddon, chairman of Novus Property Solutions, said: “We wanted to modernise our ways of working and create an attractive environment in a better-equipped facility that would enable all our local teams to collaborate together under one roof. “The new building is the head office of our business and we are proud of our long association with the Stoke-on-Trent area. Our new home will help to further strengthen our reputation when clients come to visit and see the breadth of our expertise.
“There’s no guarantee we won’t outgrow our new offices, but our shareholders have a long history in this part of the country, and we have never considered moving away from the area.”
