NOVA Engineering and Environmental, LLC.

Construction Materials Testing & Inspection Services


Quality control/quality assurance testing and inspection services are key components to help ensure that the precise planning and careful design of a project are not lost during construction. These services represent approximately 1% of the overall construction budget. As a small percentage of the total construction budget, no other item can have as much impact on the quality of the finished project. Owners, architects, engineers and general contractors associated with any construction project require information to increase their confidence that the construction practices and materials utilized during construction meet the project specifications.

Our services provide the design team and the owner with critical information for the evaluation of the life safety aspects of the construction project. When these services are performed by qualified professionals, they can help to keep the project within the budget and schedule by reducing change orders or RFI’s during construction, and reducing future maintenance and repair costs.
