Nova provides innovative environmental and engineering services in the areas of risk assessment, investigation, management, compliance and corrective action activities.
Environmental Due Diligence
From pre-acquisition real estate due diligence to services that help prioritize capital expenditures and minimize operating costs, Nova is a trusted partner throughout the total ownership cycle. An environmental assessment is conducted to identify potential environmental conditions related to on-site and off-site activities. A phased approach allows the client to maximize information obtained while minimizing costs. Property Condition Assessments (PCA) are often completed to evaluate the remaining useful life of building systems. By doing so, Nova can assist its clients with preserving capital expenditures, while at the same time extending the useful life of critical building components and systems.

Whether you need help with a planning application or have a specific environmental concern, our land quality service provides you the advice and support you require.
