About us:

Kova Engineering is CSA W178.1 certified Inspection Company for the inspection of buildings, bridges, industrial structures, machinery, cranes, rails and road vehicles. Our engineers are licensed to consult in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Yukon, and the North West Territories. Among our staff of technologists and technicians we have CWB Level 1, 2 and 3 CSA W 178.2 ticketed inspectors. In addition to our CWB qualifications our staff holds CGSB tickets in magnetic particle, liquid penetrant and ultrasonic testing.

Everyone’s safety is very important to us at Kova Engineering. We are committed to occupational health and safety and have recently received a certificate of recognition certification (C.O.R.) by the Alberta Construction Safety Association and work place health and safety. We are also working to receiving the same recognition in the province of British Columbia.


The crane certification bureau was established originally in 1976. For over 35 years we have been inspecting and certifying cranes and lift equipment. Kova Engineering was established in 1989 and has grown into so much more than cranes and lift equipment certification. We now provide various constructions based engineering services such as scaffolding and reshoring design, design and redesign of cranes and construction equipment, finite element analysis, tower and self-erect crane placements, foundations, rigging studies and lift plans.

Work Team:

Our team is comprised of a range of engineers and technologists that bring different experience and expertise to every challenge. This diverse range of backgrounds, is what allows us to remain competitive and innovative.
