Novus completes refurbishment project at Farthing Court retirement complex

Novus Property Solutions has completed a major refurbishment project at an assisted living complex in Greater London.

Farthing Court, in Mill Hill, Greater London is owned and managed by Kingsdale Group. The assisted living development comprises 31 two-bedroom apartments and 30 one-bedroom apartments, along with restaurant facilities, a hobbies room, guest suite and lounge area.

Over 18 weeks, nine Novus operatives carried out the extensive interior refurbishment, working closely with the Kingsdale team throughout. During the course of the project, which is worth close to £100,000, the team redecorated all communal corridors and stairwells at Farthing Court as well as the staff studio apartment and guest suite. With several elements to co-ordinate and with the staff apartment needing to be finished prior to works commencing on the guest suite, Novus’ team liaised with the carpet fitters and the furniture manufacturers to ensure that the project ran smoothly and to the agreed programme of works.

Jamie Grant, Contracts Agent for Novus, said: “We offered a very personal service to the residents and scheme manager. There are 61 apartments which are all lived in and we considered each resident’s personal circumstances during the project.

“Farthing Court is the Kingsdale Group’s flagship scheme, so we knew that we had to exceed expectations and complete our works on schedule and to the highest possible standard – something that I am proud to say we worked hard to achieve.”     

The main refurbishment project saw Novus staff strip all existing wallpaper, prepare the wall surfaces and hang new lining paper, which was then painted with two coats of emulsion. In addition, Novus hung Muraspec wide vinyl wall coverings to all the walls above the dado rail. The wall covering had to be taken from the same batch to guarantee an exact match. The existing woodwork required preparation and repairs, before being repainted with Dulux products. Novus also stripped out and replaced two bathrooms and two communal toilets as part of the comprehensive refurb. As well as new sanitaryware, Novus built new partition walls, and tiled the floor and walls.
