Shining a spotlight on our Interiors service

It’s been an exciting start to 2024 for everyone here at Novus, with numerous projects underway across our diverse range of services and sectors. Our Interiors service is no exception, and we eagerly anticipate showcasing a series of exceptional projects in the months ahead.

Interiors, spearheaded by Executive Director Matt Hiley, offers fast track fit out and refurbishment services – from small one-off projects to multi-million pound national programmes – through our specialist workforce and trusted supply chain. This approach allows our expert team to provide a single source solution for building refurbishments and reconfigurations to be delivered on time, on budget, and to the highest standard.

In order to complete ultra-fast, high specification refurbishments across a variety of sectors and requirements, Interiors covers three areas: Fast Track Fit Out, Partnerships, and Major Projects. Here’s everything you need to know about the three areas of our Interiors service.

Fast Track Fit Out

Led by Head of Operations for Fast Track Fit Out John McMonigle, this area focuses on high volume repeat works programmes ranging from asset replacement to multi-site fit outs. Fast track fit out and refurbishment projects offer a way to achieve rapid transformation and minimise disruption to ongoing operations, allowing businesses to quickly refresh their spaces and start realising the benefits of the renovated environment.

The team has an enviable reputation for this type of work in the hotel, student accommodation and retail sectors, with a proven track record for delivering national refurbishment schemes. In 2023 alone, our Fast Track Fit Out team delivered the refurbishment of 18 full hotels for a long term client, with 710 miles between the northernmost and southernmost hotels to an exceptional standard – demonstrated by an NPS score of 10/10 from the client.

Our approach relies on rapid turnaround through effective planning, streamlined processes, flexibility and collaboration with our clients.

Major Projects

The Major Projects division of Interiors covers larger projects with higher levels of complexity that require design and programme management. It is led by Head of Operations for Major Projects, Lee Spencer, and covers a wide range of sectors including health, housing, education and retail.

Our position as a supplier on the £1 billion Pagabo Refit and Refurbishment Framework underpins a large part of the procurement opportunities for Major Projects. Last year, we were delighted to complete the first contract awarded through Lot 1 of the framework, an 11-week summer refurbishment works programme at Loughborough University – a testament to the dedication and expertise of our team.


Partnerships provides a single source hard maintenance, minor works and small projects service through long term framework agreements. The service already has a strong reputation and portfolio in the North West, North East and Midlands for clients across healthcare and education, and is continuously expanding in other regions and sectors. Recent successes for Partnerships include being re-awarded a significant contract with the University of Manchester, as well as long term partnerships with contracts spanning 30 years.

We’re proud to have recently appointed Sean Ryan as Head of Operations for Partnerships, who brings over 23 years of experience in facility and project management services across a variety of sectors. He will be using this experience of diverse service requirements, regulations and operationally competent leadership to enhance our existing portfolio and ultimately drive growth for the wider business. Welcome to Novus, Sean!
