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.

Social houses in Wrexham set for spruce up

SOCIAL HOUSES IN WREXHAM SET FOR SPRUCE UP

Social housing tenants in Wrexham are set to benefit from more modern accommodation following the awarding of £500,000 worth of works to contractor Novus Property Solutions by Wrexham County Borough Council. The work will see Novus carry out internal re-decoration of void properties and a programme for external repairs and painting to the council’s stock over the next three years, with the potential for a further three-year extension. Novus’s work builds on the relationship the firm has established with Wrexham County Borough Council in previous years carrying out refurbishment and repair projects. Sam Frame, head of operations at Novus, said: “Novus has a strong presence in the North West and Wales and this contract will enable us to strengthen this by employing more people and continue to give back to the communities we operate in. “We’ve built a good understanding of how to deliver refurbishment projects to Wrexham Council’s high standards over the years and, together with experience working alongside other local authorities and housing associations, this will develop further. This contract will ensure social housing in Wrexham is fully prepared for future use.” Lee Roberts, Property Investment Lead at Wrexham County Borough Council, said: “Over the past few years we have invested heavily to improve our housing stock to provide our tenants with modern and affordable housing now and into the future. This contract will see that work continue and as we have worked with Novus in the past we look forward to continued good relations with both ourselves and our tenants.”
