Wrexham County Borough Council – Energy Efficient Social Housing
Working on behalf of Wrexham County Borough Council delivering planned, responsive and project works to both void and occupied dwellings across social housing properties.
Novus is working on behalf of Wrexham County Borough Council delivering planned, responsive and project works to both void and occupied dwellings across social housing properties for an £8m contract.
What work did Novus carry out?
- Replacement of pitched and flat roofing
- Loft insulation (of void properties)
- Installation of economy 10 heating
- Structural walls
- Pointing brickwork
- Removal and reinstatement of PV and solar panels
When refurbishing the void property roofs, we ensured all loft insulation was upgraded and brought up to current energy efficiency standards. We have also installed new condensing boilers to upgrade central heating systems. This has drastically reduced the running costs on Wrexham County Borough Council properties across their housing stock.
Local operatives and Subcontractors
The works are resourced using locally based, directly employed Operatives and approved Subcontractors from the Wrexham area. This helps with the efficiency of logistics as well as benefitting the local community through employment and skills development.
It is important to Wrexham County Borough Council that our contractors follow our own ethos and provide an excellent service from management, top-quality construction and compliance on all our projects, and the team at Novus Property Solutions do just that. They provide a high standard of management fronted by Steve Stockford and Richard Owen and have an excellent core of quality subcontractors to choose from, and their teams on site embrace our policies, diligently adhering to our health and safety practices.
In terms of reliability, Novus Property Solutions hold the top spot for successfully handing back properties and can be relied on to perform regularly and diligently on site. Their Subcontractors are of the highest quality and work well to deadlines.
