Novus Property Solutions has secured three contracts across the Midlands

Novus, which operates across Great Britain, has a longstanding reputation for operational excellence across the housing sector, and this delivery has played a key role in securing new contracts with existing clients The Guinness Partnership and Solihull Community Housing.

In the highest value of the three contracts, Novus has further expanded its partnership with long term client The Guinness Partnership. Novus’ expert team will deliver whole house retrofit works to 50 properties in Crewe throughout 2024 and 2025 as part of the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) Wave 2.1 scheme.

The retrofit works will be completed through Novus’ dedicated Sustain service, which provides a one-stop-shop decarbonisation service to local authorities and social housing landlords. Social value will continue to play an important role in this partnership, with both organisations working together to deliver an estimated social value contribution of £3.4 million over the past three years across employment, local supply chain, and community and charity initiatives and events.

Novus has also secured two significant contracts with returning client Solihull Community Housing.
