We've been shortlisted for the Construction Investing in Talent Awards

We've been selected as a finalist in the Corporate Responsibility Scheme of the Year category of the 2017 Construction Investing in Talent Awards.

Now in its second year and brought to you by Construction News, these awards are about rewarding individuals and teams who work so hard to attract and retain the best talent.

We've been recognised for our ambitious Changing Lives scheme, which has seen us invest hundreds of hours and thousands of pounds to help improve the communities in which we operate.

The scheme is part of our company-wide commitment to corporate and social responsibility - something which is integral to the business and as such is embraced by staff across the business.

Construction News editor Tom Fitzpatrick said: “Our shortlisted companies are overcoming Brexit uncertainty by striving to attract and retain the best talent in the UK construction industry.

“Each company is going further than ever before to make construction an inclusive industry and pushing the boundaries on their outreach initiatives, recruitment and as the best places to work.

“Our expert judges from the worlds of construction, retail, government and transport will now have the difficult task of choosing this year’s winners.”

The winners will be announced at a glamorous awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House hotel in London on 15 November.

Refurbished Room for Homeless

FROM GAMES ROOM TO BEDROOM FOR A HOMELESS SHELTER

Demonstrating our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, the Novus Bangor Office have refurbished an unused games room into a bedroom in support of helping a local Homeless Shelter.   A Helping Hand to the Homeless of Wales During the cold winter months, it goes without saying that a warm bed for the night is invaluable to a member of the homeless community. With that in mind, the Novus Bangor Office worked in partnership with North Wales Housing Association recently to support a bedroom upgrade. Novus provided their refurbishment services to help a local homeless shelter transform a disused existing games room into a much needed, well equipped, and comfortable extra bedroom. With over 400 rough sleepers in Wales alone, the scale of the problem is seemingly huge. As part of our commitment to helping those who are at their most vulnerable in society, Novus Bangor Office  wanted to help tackle homelessness in North Wales by providing a helping hand. The completed upgrade now gives one extra person a bed for the night during these colder nights. It is hoped that the facility will also be used by over 300 people in the coming year. A Team Effort The newly refurbished bedroom has benefitted from new doors to both the entrance and wardrobe, these kindly were supplied and fitted by BDL Fire Protection. Complete refurbishment of the flooring was generously donated by Ross Hughes Flooring. Subcontractors PJR Electrical completed all electrical work from new plug sockets to repositioning the CCTV camera. Finally, there was a new sink facility fitted and full decoration of the room including a bed, mattress, bedside table, and chest of draws. CSR at Novus Corporate Social Responsibility is at the core of everything we do at Novus and we are extremely proud to help support such a fantastic project.
