We are NOVUS and this is our Way… #GetItRight
Getting it right is the core value that enables us to fulfil our mission to deliver outstanding quality, through a trained and sustainable workforce.
We strive to achieve real solutions that are fit for purpose, aligned to best practice and are supportive of future development.
We asked our people to share their stories of how they deliver this value through their daily activities…
Tony Crowder – Site Foreman – Liverpool
Tony consistently gets it right on each project that he delivers, achieving fantastic results and receiving positive Client feedback on every occasion. One of Tony’s recent projects – The Royal Quay, situated on the Albert Docks in Liverpool was named Runner-Up in PPG’s Painter of the Year Awards. The building was in a poor state of repair due to its exposed location on the quayside and had not been externally maintained for 13 years.
The team, led by Tony, successfully delivered external redecoration and repair works to this very large, complex and prestigious building, achieving a high-quality finish to the full satisfaction of the Client.
Frank Pike – Site Supervisor – Manchester
We recently received a compliment letter from the Assistant Director of Asset Management of Adactus Housing, which confirmed that Frank Pike, our Site Manager in Manchester, had demonstrated all of the qualities within Get it Right. The letter stated:
“Frank Pike; the Novus Site Manager, has a significant daily presence on site which is a great benefit to the success of the contract. Should there be a rare occasion when Frank is off-site, then he always answers his phone to deal with any queries.
Frank has a professional and friendly nature which is a catalyst for his success. He orchestrates his team well which gives Adactus (as a client); assurance and confidence in Novus and the subsequent delivery of the contract. Frank has also built excellent working relationships with all the Adactus staff associated with the Miles Platting PFI and we associate Frank as part of our team.
Frank and the Novus team have a “can do” attitude to the varied tasks in hand, which removes any anxiety from Adactus regarding both known and unforeseen constructional issues.”
