£20m partnership boost for Novus and Places for People
We have expanded our work with the multi award-winning property management, development and regeneration company Places for People, as part of a four-year partnership valued in excess of £20 million.

Our team will undertake planned refurbishment of Places for People’s properties across large parts of the south of England and carry out decency work to around 5,000 homes to keep them up to the Decent Homes Standard.

We have been working in partnership with Places for People for the last four years, and are delighted to now be Places for People’s primary contractor across Milton Keynes, North London and the Thames Gateway, the South West and the South East.

We will work closely and collaboratively with the client and other parties in order to deliver exceptional service. By letting contracts to a single company on a regional basis, efficiencies in delivery will be improved for Places for People.

As a result of the partnership with Places for People, we have already opened a new office in Uxbridge and employed 25 more staff and operatives to ensure we deliver the contract smoothly and successfully, with more new employment to be created as the partnership develops.

Neil Hand, managing director, said: “We are confident that this four-year partnership with Places for People will be a resounding success. Collaborative working will help to cement our reputation as a go-to contractor for maintenance and refurbishment services. We look forward to working with the organisation over the coming years and to delivering the highest quality solutions for Places for People and its residents.”

Steven Pinder, principal quantity surveyor at Places for People, added: “We welcome continuing to build our relationship with Novus through the planned works contract in the south. We will be working collectively with Novus, Places for People’s property maintenance team and our other partnering contractor in the north over the next four years to successfully deliver our stock improvement works programme.”
