the company

While novus may be of a comparatively modest size to its more corporate competitors, we see this as a definite advantage.

Projects that speak for themselves, demonstrating as intended, that while we punch well above our weight, we do it very well.

Examples such as the delivery of the project management for the Commonwealth Games 2022 bid, to transforming large arenas and onward to large scale residential delivery, up to 51-storeys. We are an SME, with a depth of expertise and an exciting landscape of Client and schemes.
Ultimately, we are differentiators in the marketplace.
