Forensic Investigations

 

Often during completion of standard due diligence work, problematic or systemic building issues are encountered. Nova has the resources and expertise to assist with identifying, quantifying, prioritizing, and solving potential or existing physical risks and liabilities. These capabilities allow for a quick response to determine the extent of a problem’s impact on the overall value and performance of a building or system.

For existing properties, some building systems fail or perform at a level that is unsatisfactory to the owner, property manager, contractor, or design professional. Nova assists clients by investigating the cause or causes of a failure and makes recommendations for corrective measures.

Experience

Nova has licensed architects, engineers, and consultants located throughout the country. Its staff is able to mobilize quickly to meet today’s shortened due diligence timelines. With Nova’s diverse team as a due diligence partner, clients can rest assured they’ll have a versatile resource committed to providing the information they need to make informed decisions during real estate transactions. Additionally, Nova has staff trained in specific areas of expertise available to consult as needed.

Roofing and Waterproofing Advising

 

Nova’s assessment services assist owners in evaluating the integrity of an existing roof or building envelope through comprehensive surveys that determine signs of deterioration, water tightness, and estimated remaining life. These evaluations can be augmented by nondestructive test methods utilizing a moisture gauge, nuclear density gauge, and/or infrared camera technology. Nova’s primary approach to roof assessments is to prolong the life of the asset and provide clients with the information they need to make informed decisions. If it is determined that a roof replacement is the answer, then Nova’s professionals can provide complete replacement design services, bidding assistance, and contractor selection review. Staff also provides on-site monitoring of installation activities.

Experience

With experience in design consultation and testing, Nova’s professional consultants provide clients with the technical team members they need to tackle roofing and waterproofing issues. Nova offers installation oversight to ensure roof systems are installed and perform as intended and has experience in storm damage (cause and origin) assessments.
