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.

NOVUS PARTNERS WITH FORTIOR HOMES ON £14M CONTRACT

We have been chosen to deliver a major housing project in Stoke-on-Trent in a deal worth around £14million.   Our Stoke-on-Trent team will be building 85 apartments and 43 houses in partnership with Fortior Homes, the housing company owned by Stoke-on-Trent City Council, on Lichfield Street, Hanley.   Work on the site will begin in December with completion set for September 2020. The development will consist of a range of two and three-bedroom houses and one and two-bedroom apartments.   Novus were appointed to the contract following a competitive tendering process.   Dean Povey, Operations Manager at Novus, said: “As a national contractor that calls Stoke its home, we can’t wait to get started on this exciting project.   “The development will provide quality homes for private rent and market sale [DA(1] for the city’s people a stone’s throw from Stoke-on-Trent’s shopping, nightlife and business centre.   “As the first project we’ve worked on with Fortior Homes we’re looking forward to building a lasting relationship.”   Councillor Randy Conteh, the city council’s cabinet member for housing, communities and safer city, said: “We are committed to providing quality housing for our residents at all stages of life – and to ensuring that different types of accommodation are available to meet everyone’s needs. By providing new-build homes in this location we will be making sure we don’t lose people to other areas who want to live in this kind of accommodation, but are struggling to find somewhere suitable.   “There has been a significant amount of investment in the city centre and the infrastructure to support businesses. This is a way of continuing that support by providing the homes for those attracted to the city by the new business environment in a spot readily accessible from the centre.   “It is also fantastic news that a local company, Novus, has successfully won the contract for this development. Helping local businesses to grow means more jobs and opportunities for local people. It raises people’s quality of life, and it supports our economy.”   Councillor Ann James, leader of the city council and a board member of Fortior Homes, said: “The development of this site will allow us to deliver on our objective for significant investment in new housing.   “We aim to provide high quality homes within Stoke-on-Trent, and the Lichfield Street site presents an exciting opportunity for the delivery of a new and aspirational private rental and market sale offer in a key location.”  [DA(1]Are you ok with us adding this to Dean’s comment?
