Nova Group, GBC believes in sustainability, and with that comes our collective responsibility to maintain existing building assets in a safe and code-compliant manner. The New York Metropolitan area provides a unique opportunity for Nova to excel in this passion, having one of the nation's oldest and most fascinating arrays of buildings. With key personnel and the collective experience of the entire Nova team, we are able to quickly and efficiently perform engineering assessments on virtually all structural and enclosure building components. Owners, managers, and other interested parties can rely on Nova's expertise to answer tough questions concerning their assets' history, condition, and compliance with local laws.


Local knowledge is a must! Nova's team of engineers, architects, and construction specialists have been in, on, under, and around the buildings that make up New York City for decades. As a result, there is hardly an issue that has not crossed our desks. This knowledge of all building practices, from initial planning, investigation, design, and construction through repair, is vital for any engineering consultant to have. Nova's wide-ranging collective experience on each project ensures no stone is left unturned.
