Triple win for Novus in North Wales

Novus Property Solutions has strengthened its presence in the North Wales housing sector following a trio of significant contract wins at a total value of approximately £2 million.

The maintenance, compliance and decarbonisation contractor was successful in its tender for a major void refurbishment contract with ClwydAlyn Housing. This two-phase contract spanning seven months will see Novus’ team complete major void works, including roofing and internal refurbishments. The scheme is funded by the Transitional Accommodation Capital Programme (TACP), which aims to support housing associations and social housing landlords in creating over 1,000 additional high-quality houses across North Wales, including providing medium-term and long-term homes for Ukrainian refugees.

Novus has also been awarded a significant contract with Isle of Anglesey County Council through an open tender process on sell2wales. The contractor will carry out a series of refurbishment works, including rewires, on up to 95 kitchens across the Council’s property portfolio, with work expected to complete in October 2023.

Furthermore, Novus secured its fourth recent contract win in the region to partner with Flintshire County Council to deliver a minimum two-year framework agreement for a series of void and general property works.

Commenting on the company’s new contract awards, Sam Frame, Regional Operations Director at Novus Property Solutions said: “We’re proud to have been awarded four significant contracts across North Wales. Our team looks forward to developing fantastic relationships with these new clients, as well as demonstrating our own people-centric ethos by giving back to communities across the region throughout the duration of each contract.”

Webinar: How to create an ethical supply chain in FM

Are you confident that your contractors and suppliers meet ethical labour standards and human rights obligations?

For many FM services, managing multiple third parties in the supply chain can be a complex challenge. And, in a sector that relies heavily on migrant workers and 65 per cent of FM services facing difficulties in sourcing workers (Q4 2022 RICS survey), exposure to exploitation and modern slavery is a very real risk. With the UK one of the biggest destinations in Europe for trafficking of workers, you need full visibility of the people you work with, so you can minimise your risks and identify which part of your supply chain is most vulnerable.

FMJ, in partnership with Alcumus, is pleased to bring together a panel of experts to discuss how to create an ethical supply chain in FM.

Taking place at 11am on Wednesday 21st of June, the webinar will discuss:

  • The regulations to be aware of that are aimed at preventing human right abuses.
  • How to gain greater visibility of modern slavery compliance in the supply chain by having a robust verification process in place.
  • Steps to creating a compliant, ethical supply chain.
