Novus builds affordable homes
As part of a £900,000 contract with Stoke-on-Trent Housing Society, we built eight brand new affordable homes in Stoke-on-Trent.

Our team constructed the terraced homes - all with front and back gardens - nine weeks ahead of the agreed deadline, following the initial demolition of a derelict and unsafe former public house.

The properties will be owned by the Society but managed on its behalf by a local housing association, Aspire Housing.

We showcased our skills across multiple trades during the work, leading the project on Thurston Way, Berryhill, from start to finish.

Our team laid foundations, constructed the homes, and completed electrical, plumbing, roofing and plastering work along with kitchen and bathroom installations and painting and decorating.

Designed by architect Ellis Hillman, each home adheres to the Secured by Design initiative and is also designed to be easily adapted for people with disabilities.

Light fittings were installed by our team at appropriate heights, while ramps were built for ease of access and stair lifts can be fitted simply, thanks to the installation of specialist flooring systems.

We followed the Code for Sustainable Homes throughout construction, implementing robust waste management strategies and installing low energy lighting, insulation and other energy efficient products to ensure sustainability.

Ged Carr, contracts manager, said: “Novus is a one stop shop for all building services and this contract with Stoke-on-Trent Housing Society showcases our abilities perfectly. We delivered this multi-trade contract with a whole nine weeks to spare and to the highest quality, ensuring we adhered to the Considerate Constructors Scheme along the way so all stakeholders involved were more than happy with the work.”

Trevor Jones, the chair of Stoke-on-Trent Housing Society, said: “Novus has worked effectively in partnership with Stoke-on-Trent Housing Society to achieve a high quality affordable housing product. These new homes will provide welcome affordable housing for people who can’t afford to buy or rent from a private landlord.”
