Who We Are

Collectively, Kovia draws on their experience from multiple disciplines including: asbestos surveying, building surveying, quantity surveying, asbestos remediation, project management, construction and facilities management.

Our Approach

Served by a young, energetic team, Kovia strives to stand out within the industry by providing best practice advice, cost effective services and outstanding customer focus to build an envied reputation within the region. We pride ourselves on our ability to offer independent asbestos surveys and consultancy, rapid reactive works for clients with time-sensitive projects and a friendly service that is consistently at the high standard we set for all Kovia operations.

Despite being in its second year, Kovia has already achieved ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, CHAS accreditation, Data Protection registration and is also a BOHS affiliate member. In line with our growth strategy to become a large and successful asbestos consultancy, we hope to add UKAS accreditation in the near future.
