National maintenance contractor Novus Property Solutions has won a four-year contract with Harrogate Borough Council to refit about 300 kitchens a year.
The announcement follows shortly after the company’s nationwide Maintain division was awarded a similar three-year contract by Leeds City Council, joining the kitchen installation deal that has been in place with East Riding of Yorkshire Council since February.
Novus, which recently streamlined its business into three dedicated work streams as part of its long-term growth strategy, will carry out kitchen replacement works at 1,200 borough council properties over four years, with work across Harrogate, Knaresborough, Pateley Bridge, Masham and the City of Ripon starting in October 2021.
In Leeds, Novus has also just started carrying out a range of internal and external remedial works to Leeds City Council’s housing stock, including damp treatment, external environmental works, repairing properties with wet or dry rot, and other general property refurbishment works.
In all three cases, Novus has also made commitments ranging from using local labour and suppliers to encouraging volunteering opportunities for its colleagues in the region by dedicating time for social value initiatives. In Harrogate, Novus will also donate goods and cash to local charities.
Charlie Cooley, Novus Property Solutions’ head of operations, said: “We’re particularly pleased to be gaining further prominence in the Yorkshire region, following our contract wins in both Hull and Leeds.”
