Novus joins forces with Staffordshire Housing Group

We're pleased to announce that we've agreed a three-year contract to deliver vital repairs and refurbishments to properties managed by Staffordshire Housing Group.

We will provide responsive repairs to over 2,600 Staffordshire Housing Group properties and we'll be assigning 115 staff to the project to ensure all repairs can be delivered promptly.

The £1 million contract will also deliver void repairs when tenants vacate properties in order to bring properties up to the very best possible standard so that they can be let out to new occupants.

Mark Wilkinson, Staffordshire Housing’s property services manager, said: “We are delighted to appoint Novus as our responsive repairs contractor. They have a reputation of delivering customer focused services and we’re really looking forward to using their knowledge and skills to improve the service we provide to our customers.

“We are proud to be supporting local business within the North Staffordshire area.”

Matt Rolnik, operations manager at Novus, said: “We go the extra mile to make sure that the job gets done to the highest standard, and that residents feel safe and comfortable when any repairs are taking place in a live environment.

“During the course of this project, we will be running coffee mornings for residents, and giving them the chance to meet with Novus operatives and ask any questions they might have about the work being done.

“In this way, we ensure that lines of communication are kept open and the work is carried out in a spirit of cooperation, with maximum consideration for the health, safety, and comfort of residents.”

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.
