Contractor Novus has been appointed to deliver planned maintenance works across Croydon as part of a contract worth £1 million.
The project will see Novus carry out kitchen and bathroom maintenance and replacements to CCHA’s properties. It will also perform windows and door replacements and internal and external redecoration works.
CCHA owns and manages around 1,400 homes in Croydon, Bromley, Merton and Sutton. Novus will work alongside Gilmartins to provide planned and reactive maintenance services as part of the project.
Tony Ronayne, operations manager at Novus, said: “This is the first time we’ve worked alongside CCHA and we’re looking forward to building a good working relationship going forward.
“Despite being in one of the most expensive places to live in the country, we’re committed to ensuring high-quality work in affordable housing is carried out across all of the provider’s properties.
“As part of the scheme we’ll be carrying out planned maintenance works to care homes, which requires us to liaise with tenants to ensure minimal disruption to them. Our experience with these types of projects ensures we’re able to do that for CCHA and its tenants.”
Craig Humphrey, property services manager at CCHA, said: “Ensuring our residents get the very best maintenance services available within a timely manner is vital to us. Novus’s work helps us achieve that. We’re looking forward to working alongside the business over the coming months and building on our relationship.”
