Novus maintains strength in social housing market

Property maintenance and refurbishment specialist Novus Property Solutions is maintaining its strength in the social housing market, having won contracts to a value of £335,000 with three social housing providers in the Greater Manchester area.

Novus completely replaced 35 kitchens over a four month period at a sheltered housing scheme in Manchester. The firm, which has an office in Salford, carried out the refurbishments at Crossley Court, for the Salvation Army Housing Association.

New kitchen units were installed along with associated electrical work, plumbing and flooring. The redecoration of each kitchen was also undertaken, all of which further showcases Novus’ ability to deliver multiple trades under one roof.

Novus’ operatives worked around the activities of young homeless people who live in the accommodation, overcoming the challenges and demands which came alongside this to achieve the desired results.

Novus has also carried out a complete refurbishment at Tekoa House in Rochdale, for Langley House Trust. The Trust, a registered charity, provides rehabilitation and support for ex-offenders, thus helping them to turn their lives around.

Operatives remodelled the interior of the accommodation, installed new doors and ironmongery, fitted new carpets, a new boiler and heating system and completed a full internal redecoration.

In Stockport meanwhile, Novus is completing work for Stockport Homes. A team of operatives is applying an innovative fire-retardant coating to staircases, corridors, lift lobbies and a reception area inside the 16-floor Hollywood Towers on East Street.

Andy Woodhouse, regional operations manager for Novus, said:

“These high profile contract wins showcase Novus’ ability to bring robust, effective maintenance and refurbishment solutions to our clients.

“We’re committed to delivering the highest quality solutions for all of our clients and are delighted to be working with these social landlords, and to have welcomed Stockport Homes to our ever-growing client base.

“Teamed with local knowledge and national strength, Novus continues to be a market leader not only in social housing but across a multitude of sectors.”
