Novus awarded £2m Perth & Kinross planned housing maintenance contract
Residents of Perth and Kinross Council’s properties are set to benefit from maintenance to homes after the awarding of a new contract to Novus.
The building contractor will carry out external works to over 2,000 properties across Perthshire North and South, Perth City, Muirton and Letham.
The extensive refurbishments will be phased over the next four years and will see residents benefit from external decoration including repairs to rendering, fencing and works to gutters and downpipes.
Daniel Murray, project manager at Perth & Kinross Council, said: “Ensuring our region’s housing stock is high-quality is vital to both our residents’ wellbeing and the sustainability and longevity of the properties. We’re committed to investing in our houses to achieve this and we’re confident that the extensive external decoration programme will have a significant impact on our communities.
“Novus has an excellent knowledge of our local area and we know they will put our tenants’ needs first, as well as delivering fantastic results.”
Charlie Cooley, head of operations at Novus, added: “We have an established relationship with Perth and Kinross Council which has enabled us to develop a deeper understanding of how we can work with residents to achieve the best results for everyone. We’re looking forward to beginning the upgrades and seeing the difference the revitalised homes will make to the communities.”
The value of the project will be around £2 million and will take place from this month.
