We've been shortlisted for a Fleet Safety Award

We’re very proud to have made it to the final stage of the national Fleet Safety Awards this year. We’re one of six companies to have been shortlisted in the ‘Company Driver Safety Award (medium fleet)’ category.

The Fleet Safety Awards is a prestigious annual event, run by national road safety charity, Brake. The awards recognise the achievements of those working to help reduce the number of road crashes involving at-work drivers and is open to organisations running any size or type of fleet, as well as companies providing road safety products or services to fleets. This year’s finalists include household names such as FedEX, Royal Mail Group, and British Gas, as well as a host of smaller companies.

Brake received a record number of first-time entries this year and more than 70 organisations were shortlisted across 15 different award categories. The full list of finalists can be viewed here.

Katie Shephard, development director at Brake, commented: “Congratulations to all organisations which have been shortlisted. The standard was exceptionally high this year and we’re looking forward to working with our external judges to select some well deserving winners. 

“We’ve been incredibly impressed by Novus Property Solutions and their entry into our Fleet Safety Awards. It is fantastic that they are making a real effort to end the needless crashes on our roads as a result of at-work drivers. Our judges now have the difficult task of choosing the winners and we wish Novus Property Solutions the best of luck and look forward to seeing them all at our awards dinner.”

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner on Thursday 28 September 2017, at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, Birmingham.

£20,000 COMMUNITY LEARNING HUB OPENS AT DUDLEY SCHOOL

A new community learning hub has opened at Bromley Pensnett Primary School in Dudley following a £20,000 competition by contractor Novus. School Refurbishments Work Works at the school include a full refurbishment of the previously derelict building that saw our team of 10 install a new roof, repair and redecorate the interior and exterior, fit new steps, replace doors and flooring, and install a new kitchen. We have completed the hub in just two weeks as part of a competition by Novus to support worthwhile projects in the communities we operate in, as voted for by people in the area. We refurbished the school in Pensnett’s community learning centre, which has been closed for the past five years after falling into a state of disrepair. Learning Hub Services The new Novus Learning Hub offers a space where parents and carers can visit for support and advice. The building now provides the facilities for parents to complete health checks and weigh-in sessions and attend breast feeding clinics. It was chosen as part of the Novus’ ‘Big Five’ initiative to mark our fifth birthday, with £20,000 being spent on five individual local community projects across the UK. The project was also made possible by donations from Novus’ supply chain from Crown Paints, Eurocell, Howdens Joinery and Acorn Spencer. Head Teacher Feedback Helen Tomlinson, headteacher at Bromley Pensnett Primary School, said: “The new Novus Learning Hub provides a centre for our community that it was once lacking. We’re grateful to Novus for taking the building out of its derelict state and refurbishing it to the highest standards. “Everyone at the school is really happy with the finished project and we’re looking forward to seeing the ongoing benefits it will bring to the community.” Site Supervisor Feedback Dani Roberts-Wright, site supervisor at Novus, said: “Delivering the new Novus Learning Hub at Bromley Pensnett school was an honour to work on and we’re all really pleased with the final results. “As part of our commitment to the communities we operate in we’ve been working hard to deliver projects that local people could be proud of and use for years to come. This new community centre achieves that.” Bromley Pensnett Primary School Bromley Pensnett Primary School caters for 320 children aged between three and 11 years old in Pensnett and the surrounding areas. In 2015 it partnered with drb Ignite Multi Academy Trust to become a sponsored academy.
