Top universities choose Novus for Summer upgrades
We're going back to school this summer after winning two contracts and two frameworks to deliver upgrades at a prestigious UK universities.

A long history of success in the university refurbishment sector helped us to win frameworks with the University of Worcester and Birmingham City University, and contracts with Leeds Beckett University and leading student accommodation provider, Unite Group.
We have been appointed to the University of Worcester Construction Framework for a period of five years, and a panel of contractors will deliver new build and refurbishment projects to teaching facilities, workshops, laboratories and leisure facilities, to help the university to attract new students.
A similar agreement has seen us appointed to the Birmingham City University Construction Framework, while we'll also be completing a one-off contract at Leeds Beckett University, including external painting works and repairs to office blocks on campus.
The Unite Group's summer refurbishment programme will include redecoration and flooring works to the bedrooms, shared areas and communal spaces at their student accommodation in Portsmouth, Bournemouth and Bristol.
Our impeccable reputation for delivering high quality building and refurbishment works in academic settings has been underlined by a number of successful projects this year, including the installation of safety flooring and suspended ceilings at the University of Teesside and vital painting and decorating works at the University of Glasgow.
Peter Hordley, head of client services at Novus Property Solutions, said: “I'm delighted that the experience and expertise we've developed in working in the university sector has helped us to secure these long-term frameworks for the future.
"Everyone at Novus has worked hard to grow the company's expertise in delivering upgrades to university buildings that help to reduce running costs and improve environmental credentials.
"Our team is adept at meeting the various challenges posed by urban campuses in the heart of cities, and at working on out-of-town campuses, and in the case of the University of Worcester we tackled both of those situations at the same institution.
He added: “Our extensive history of work in this area has helped us to learn about the most effective ways to collaborate with university staff and work in a way that minimises disruption to the daily life of staff and students.”
