NOVUS COLLECTS TROPHY AT WEMBLEY

Manchester City weren’t the only ones to return from Wembley with a trophy last week, with the Novus Big Five – our flagship 2018 charity project – being named winner of the National Building Award for community engagement at the iconic stadium on 22nd May.

Hosted at Wembley, the National Building Awards celebrate industrious, hardworking and enterprising construction businesses across the country. We were one of four finalists in the community engagement category, with judges commending our clear commitment to CSR on an ongoing basis at all levels of the business.

The Big Five campaign was a milestone initiative conceived to celebrate our fifth anniversary by giving something back to the communities we work in.  The campaign saw us canvas nominations for worthy projects in five locations across the UK, which each benefited from a £20,000 refurbishment project.

The project united our entire business towards a single CSR goal with projects selected to meet our corporate social responsibility (CSR) goal of helping to change lives.

The award win is further evidence that our initiatives are some the best, most engaging and transformative in the sector.

Each refurbishment project was chosen by our own team of judges and included refurbishments to a maternity ward, a house for a homeless person, two community centres and a rehabilitation centre for military veterans.

Refurbished Room for Homeless

FROM GAMES ROOM TO BEDROOM FOR A HOMELESS HOSTEL IN WALES

Demonstrating our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, the Novus Bangor Office have refurbished an unused games room into a bedroom in support of helping a local homeless hostel.   A Helping Hand to the Homeless of Wales During the cold winter months, it goes without saying that a warm bed for the night is invaluable to a member of the homeless community. With that in mind, the Novus Bangor Office worked in partnership with North Wales Housing Association recently to support a bedroom upgrade. Novus provided their refurbishment services to help a local homeless hostel transform a disused existing games room into a much needed, well equipped, and comfortable extra bedroom. With over 400 rough sleepers in Wales alone, the scale of the problem is seemingly huge. As part of our commitment to helping those who are at their most vulnerable in society, Novus Bangor Office  wanted to help tackle homelessness in North Wales by providing a helping hand. The completed upgrade now provides a temporary room for a homeless person whilst they are supported into moving into their own property. A Team Effort The newly refurbished bedroom has benefitted from new doors to both the entrance and wardrobe, these kindly were supplied and fitted by BDL Fire Protection. Complete refurbishment of the flooring was generously donated by Ross Hughes Flooring. Subcontractors PJR Electrical completed all electrical work from new plug sockets to repositioning the CCTV camera. Finally, there was a new sink facility fitted and full decoration of the room including a bed, mattress, bedside table, and chest of draws. CSR at Novus Corporate Social Responsibility is at the core of everything we do at Novus and we are extremely proud to help support such a fantastic project.
