National maintenance and compliance contractor, Novus Property Solutions, has been awarded a contract for the refurbishment of the North West Lung Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital.

The latest in a series of health sector contracts won by the company, the 10-week project will see the completion of a variety of works including internal alterations, mechanical and electrical, and the installation lab furniture to create four lung functionality testing suites.

Novus has also been awarded a significant contract with University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust to refurbish the pharmacy department’s existing space ahead of the arrival of its new robotic dispensing equipment.

The refurbishment will take place in three phases over a period of 14 weeks to ensure services remain operational with minimal disruption. 

Alongside these recent healthcare contracts, Novus has successfully won a place on the coveted RISE framework in six categories, and a place on the two-year NHS Shared Business Services Hard Facilities framework for 12 lots including Building Fabric Maintenance, Roofing and Guttering Services, General Gas Appliances, and Fire Doors.

Furthermore, Novus recently gained a place on the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust estates framework for Lot 2, covering five hospitals across the region.

Head of operations, Chris Murphy, said: “We’re delighted to have secured a number of prestigious frameworks and contracts within the first quarter of 2022, and we look forward to working on a range of projects across the country.

“So many successes within the healthcare sector in such a short space of time is evidence of not only our dedication to growth as a business, but also our vast knowledge and experience of working in a variety of healthcare environments."
