NOVA Geotechnical & Inspection Services (NOVA), formerly Owens Geotechnical, Inc. (OGI), was established in 2001 in Las Vegas, NV to provide geotechnical engineering, environmental consulting, soils inspection and testing, construction materials testing and special inspections to the Las Vegas Valley and surrounding areas. Led by James Bristow, a creative materials engineer, and Martin Jensen, one of Nevada’s most established and well-respected geotechnical engineers, NOVA provided the highest quality of services required and expected.
