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.
