NOVUS CONQUERS GOD’S OWN COUNTY WITH THIRD MAJOR YORKSHIRE CONTRACT
We continue our success in the Yorkshire region with a third significant contract win in the historic county, this time a valuable four-year contract with Harrogate Borough Council to fit approximately 300 kitchens per year.
The announcement follows shortly after we were awarded a similar three-year maintenance contract by Leeds City Council, joining the kitchen installation contract that has been in place with East Riding of Yorkshire Council since February.
We recently streamlined our market offering into three dedicated work streams as part of our transformational long-term growth strategy and will now carry out kitchen replacement works on 1,200 Harrogate Borough Council properties during the four-year contract, with work across Harrogate, Knaresborough, Pateley Bridge, Masham and the City of Ripon commencing in October 2021.
In Leeds, Novus will carry out a range of internal and external remedial works to Leeds City Council’s housing stock, also starting in October 2021, including damp treatment, external environmental works, repairing properties with wet or dry rot, and other general property refurbishment works.
In all three cases, Novus has also committed to giving back to the local communities: this ranges from commitments to using local labour and suppliers, to encouraging volunteering opportunities for its colleagues in the region by offering dedicated time for social value initiatives. In Harrogate, we will also donate goods and cash to charities in the area.
Commenting on the contract win, Novus Property Solutions’ Head of Operations, Charlie Cooley, said:
“We’re delighted to have been awarded this contract with Harrogate Borough Council, as part of our strategic growth ambitions. We’re particularly pleased to be gaining further prominence in the Yorkshire region, following our contract wins in both Hull and Leeds.”
WE’RE INVESTING IN THE NEXT GENERATION
At Novus, we’re proud to be investing in the next generation – be it through apprenticeship programmes, trainee positions or helping in the continual development of our younger colleagues.
