Novus called upon for care village expertise


Company leading redecoration at Belong Village in Crewe

Novus is carrying out the redecoration of communal areas and the majority of the 66 bedrooms at the Belong Village in Crewe.

The project is taking place over a number of months, and the group's facilities manager has led the designs for the refurbishments, including wallpaper choices for feature walls.

Mark Johnson, operations manager at Novus Property Solutions, said: “The main issue with this contract is the need to be sensitive to the elderly residents, and we will be extremely careful about the placement of dust sheets and other trip hazards.

“Liaising with managers at the centre is vital so that we can make sure that things can carry on as usual at the home. Each bedroom is completed in a day, moving all furniture into the middle of the room and covering, painting and moving everything back so that residents aren’t out of their rooms for longer than a day.”
