In contracting design or consulting services with Nova Group, Inc., building owners will be working directly with one of the principals of the firm.  This is an advantage to the owner, knowing that they will be working and speaking directly with the people personally responsible for the actions of the firm.

Part of the consultant services offered by Nova Group, Inc. are Building - Roof Investigation and Evaluation services, areas in which both principals are highly qualified and have a substantial background and track record.  The Building Investigation and Evaluation services consist of a review of the existing building to ascertain the overall physical conditions of the general building, structural, mechanical, and electrical systems.  This review can be tailored to entail a detailed report or a cursory overview, depending upon the purpose for which it is intended.
