National property maintenance company Novus Property Solutions has won a £9 million contract to carry out repairs for West Midlands housing group Bromford.
The six-year contract, won in a competitive bid process, includes an option to extend for another two years. It covers Bromford’s social housing units across Shropshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, and Northamptonshire and involves repairs and redecorations at about 21,000 properties. Works are expected to begin this month.
Novus has worked with the housing association since 2010. Its core Maintain division recently took similar contracts with both Leeds City Council and Harrogate City Council, shortly after announcing that it had agreed on contracts in August and September worth more than £23 million.
Gary Clay, Novus’s Midlands head of operations, said: “As previous incumbent contractor for Bromford, we are delighted to have re-secured this contract as we continue to build on our fantastic working relationship with the organisation.
“As a business, we have always understood the importance of taking care of residents and keeping them informed and involved in the works we undertake to improve their homes. We also make sure we build social value into every project we do — whether that’s improving the local area through refurbishing community facilities, or giving our staff dedicated time to volunteer for local good causes.”
Nick Wooldridge, Bromford’s investment delivery manager, added: “We’ve developed an excellent working relationship with Novus and look forward to building on this during the course of this latest contract.”
