We are delighted to have completed works on Stenson House and Whitwick Business Centre in Coalville for North West Leicestershire District Council. Both projects were procured through the Procure Partnerships Framework and involved extensive refurbishment and improvement works.
The £1.9 million alteration works to Stenson House, NWLDC’s civic building, which is also home
to the Registration Service and Citizens Advice were completed over 31 weeks. During this
time, Stepnell made changes to facilitate the separation of the building. This was achieved while
preserving the current layout and updating the internal finishes such as floors, walls, ceilings
Adrian Barnes, regional director at Stepnell said: “Stenson House and Whitwick Business Centre are two recognisable council buildings in Coalville. We went to great lengths to ensure that the refurbishment and improvement works were conducted with respect to improving building safety and efficiency while minimising disruption throughout the projects. Delivering these projects through the Procure Partnerships Framework (PPF) enabled us to be flexible during the build to meet the requirements of North West Leicestershire District Council. Via PPF we were able to deliver the renovations to the highest quality, with significant engagement with trusted local suppliers.”
The second project completed by Stepnell for the Council was a £1.4 million renovation of
Whitwick Business Centre over 26 weeks. This was the first major update to the building since
its last extension in the 1970’s. Older elements of the building were deteriorating rapidly,
requiring extensive refurbishment to reach modern energy standards. Stepnell has now created
a refreshed open plan and flexible office space for council employees.
Paul Wheatley, Head of Property and Economic Regeneration at North West Leicestershire District Council, said: “We have been delighted with the work that Stepnell has done in renovating two of our buildings for modern and efficient use by our staff, civic functions and tenants.
