About the event

Welcome to our event! We look forward to seeing you.

We have successfully held a measured term contract with The University of Manchester for nearly 30 years, and have built a strong relationship through working collaboratively and transparently with their Estates Team.

We deliver both reactive and minor planned works across the university’s 229 sites throughout Manchester, which incorporate listed buildings, high-tech science blocks and student accommodation.

We receive over 10,000 reactive repair requests and 600 ‘out of hours’ emergency repair requests per
year. The works include making safe, repairing, restoring, and upgrading academic and residential buildings.

In addition, we undertake all aspects of maintenance and minor building

Individual projects completed include:
• Nine-week refurbishment of 46 kitchens across four student accommodation blocks.
• The replacement of four elevations of windows and a full refurbishment of the corridor space to create breakout areas for students following an emergency repair call out.
• Refurbishment of an office space including the removal of the existing suspended ceiling.
• Planned preventative roof maintenance including drone surveys and cleaning.


Throughout the event you will hear from several Novus colleagues who will share their career experience and routes into Construction.

You will have the opportunity to ask questions and understand the full delivery cycle from Bid through to Operations.

In addition to this, you will be taken on a tour of the live works to see what the on site team achieve on a daily basis.
