Novus Scoop a Community Impact Award
Novus Property Solutions are celebrating yet another industry accolade for their BIG 5 Campaign, after winning the Community Impact Award at the prestigious EEM Building Communities Awards 2020.
Since its inception, the Building Communities Awards has become a mainstay of the CSR calendar in construction and has built up a reputation as being one of the biggest and best events of its kind.
The Building Communities Awards is hosted by procurement consortium, EEM Ltd and was devised to recognise and celebrate professionalism, excellence and innovation within the housing and construction community.
With over 500 industry professionals in attendance at the black-tie event, this awards ceremony represents a real opportunity for businesses to showcase and celebrate the very best in construction.
Community Impact Award
The judges presented this award to Novus as recognition for the positive impact that our social value activities are having on communities up and down the country. The business was recognised as putting community interests at the heart of its operations and for delivering notable benefits to local people and the surrounding environment.
As a long-lasting, far reaching community project, the BIG 5 Campaign was submitted by Novus as it met the judging criteria proposed by EEM.
According to the Building Communities website, “Entries should provide examples of meaningful and long-lasting community impact, backed up with tangible facts and figures, clearly outlining what level of value has been added through their work.”
The winners in each category were determined by an esteemed panel of judges with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the housing and construction industry.

An ‘Eggs’ellent Effort by the Novus Easter Bunnies
Easter is a time of year that can be even more challenging for people and families struggling to afford food, which is why our employees (or Novus Easter Bunnies) across the country wanted to play their part in donating Easter Eggs to local Food Banks.
