Novum Structures’ Commitment to a Sustainable Business Model

Since our founding in 1985, Novum has dedicated itself to achieving the highest level of quality for our customers. Our commitment to innovative sustainability extends into every aspect of our operation.

A Holistic Approach to Sustainability in the Construction Process

Construction projects of any size impact the social, environmental, and economic fabric of communities. Sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Understanding the potential of our projects, we implement sustainability in our core business practices. To learn more, see our Environmental Policy.

Social Impact

Every project is undertaken with consideration for the needs of businesses, site personnel, visitors, pedestrians, shoppers, and the community. Recognizing the importance of inclusivity, we also cater to the needs of those with sight, hearing, or mobility difficulties.

Furthermore, we are passionate about nurturing the next generation of construction industry professionals, offering practical training opportunities in Construction, Engineering, Project Management, and Welding.

Economic Impact

We believe that our commitment to sustainability can foster economic growth and increase opportunities within the construction industry. Sustainability not only brings about more predictable workloads and profit levels but also opens doors to repeat business opportunities.

Having a sustainable business model can lead to cost savings, improved predictability, cost certainty, and reduced defects.

Environmental Impact

Environmental responsibility is a cornerstone of our operations Stringent waste management policies aim to minimize the impact of our projects:

  • Avoidance of pollution
  • Recycling of surplus materials
  • Protection of trees, vegetation, and wildlife

We minimize waste production at the source, encouraging the reuse and recycling of waste materials wherever possible. Worksites are kept safe and clean – avoiding accumulation of surplus materials on site or spilling into the surrounding environment. Novum treats wastes capable of recovery as resource opportunities, considering them for reuse or as alternative energy sources.

We collaborate with local stakeholders who understand and advocate environmental concerns. Whenever feasible, we support the environmental objectives of local governments and acquire knowledge about environmental issues from interested parties and agencies.

Supply chain optimization maximizes our storage and minimizes our deliveries. Ensuring our practices are ecologically sound and economical for Novum, our clients, and building owners.

We are constantly looking for ways to innovate and take advantage of new technologies. Our electronic document technologies significantly cut paper consumption and storage requirements. In the construction process, we investigate sustainable opportunities and make a point to incorporate environmentally friendly materials whenever possible.

Novum Structures strives to stay on the cutting edge. We aim to set an example and encourage partners to take an active role in shaping a sustainable future.
