We provide services from estimating and detailing through to delivery, supply and installation, as well in-house estimators are available to discuss any concerns you may have with your project. Our supply and install price eliminates the headaches associated with dealing with multiple subcontractors. We require all of our installation crews provide exceptional service to every project.

Nova specializes in heavy construction such as damns, bridges, water diversions, tilt-up commercial construction and Dywidag. Among a few of our Flagship projects is the improvement construction of the Sea to Sky Highway in 2010. Together with Kewit, Nova was instrumental in constructing and reinforcing the new walls and bridges that were carved out of the mountainous pass that became the new Highway linking west Vancouver to Whistler.

Beyond the heavy construction projects we also provide concrete reinforcing in residential homes with unique and challenging locals. Our recent residential job required a concrete platform that cantilevered over the rock banks of the Pacific Ocean.

Feature Project

Sea to Sky Gondola

Access to formerly inaccessible terrain and spectacular scenery creates what has been called a world-class attraction. Nova rises to the occasion and constructs the summit platform to this spectacular new gondola.

We Do:

  • Post Tensioning Post-Tensioned (PT) Concrete has commonly been employed for bridges, dams, parking structure and water storage tanks, it is also occasionally used in office buildings, hotels and industrial facilities.

    PT is a stressing method of reinforcing concrete, masonry and structural elements such as pre-cast concrete and cast in place. Reinforcing is installed onsite after the contractor forms the slabs and/or walls. The steel is housed in a sheathing or duct that prevents the concrete from coming into contact with the steel, this way the steel can be stressed after the concrete cures. The steel stretches as it is

    Post-tensioning gives designers and engineers flexibility to create larger open column free spaces and larger spans such as larger bay sizes, thinner floors and shallower beams.
  • Dywidag Dywidag is a reinforcing system manufactured in the United States and Canada exclusively by Dywidag-Systems International. Dywidag Threadbar reinforcing steel has a continuous rolled-in pattern of thread-like deformations along its entire length. It is more durable than machined threads and they allow nuts and couplers to thread onto Threadbar at any point along its length. Dywidag reinforcing system offers a simple, reliable and economical splice and requires less labour time for assembly than is required for welded or swaged splices.


  • Fabrication and Installation Our installation crews are experienced in many types of projects – industrial, residential, commercial and infrastructure projects whether using standard black steel, epoxy coated, galvanized, stainless or post-tensioned steel.

“Concrete is a key ingredient in our business of forming custom homes in the Sea to Sky corridor. With that comes reinforcing steel. Nova has been our primary supplier of this and has proven to be able to get the job done on time with competitive pricing. A crew that is professional on site and easy to work with. We look forward to collaborating our business on many more projects to come.” — A. Mitchell, B-Mak Construction Ltd.
