Novus celebrates first anniversary

We're celebrating a successful first year of business following our large-scale rebrand last May.

We have maintained our robust presence in the construction market, consistently winning contracts in our target sectors, which include housing, local authority, hotel and leisure, commercial, health and heritage.

Over the past 12 months, we have vastly expanded our client base, forming partnerships with high profile organisations such as Steelite International, Home Group, Centrepoint and Aspire Housing.

For renowned tableware manufacturer Steelite, we are constructing a new factory extension in Stoke-on-Trent, while for Home Group, we have installed external wall insulation to improve the thermal efficiency of more than 250 homes.

We also won a contract to redecorate and refurbish the stunning Cheltenham Town Hall and completely remodelled and refurbished state-of-the art dog kennels in Hertfordshire for the Royal Vet College.

In the education sector, we have constructed extensions for Ferncumbe Primary School in Warwickshire and Westwood First School in Staffordshire, to create improved learning environments for teachers and pupils.

In Scotland, meanwhile, we won a joint procurement bid to provide services to Manor Estates Housing Association and Melville Housing Association. The five-year contract will see us deliver reactive and emergency repairs and maintenance for both housing associations.

We have continued our ongoing partnerships with long-term clients including Whitbread, Anchor Trust, University of Manchester and social business Bromford.

Throughout the last year we have continued to deliver impressive corporate social responsibility (CSR) activity, and to mark the first anniversary, we are launching our Novus Excellence Awards, which acknowledge and highlight employees who continually go the extra mile in their role.

We have continued to give something back to the community throughout the last 12 months, having carried out work to improve areas of Middleport Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent with the help of would-be apprentices, and involved young homeless Bromford residents in the redecoration of their homes.

We also formed a partnership with Stoke school Thistley Hough Academy, as part of Business in the Community’s flagship education programme, Business Class.

Stuart Seddon, our chairman, said: “This year has been a significant one for us and it gives me great pride to know that we are still a robust business that continues to perform strongly in our chosen sectors, and we’re looking forward to many more years of success.”
