Nuvia's heritage dates back to the beginning of the UK nuclear industry and since then the business has grown to become a trusted provider of services to a range of UK and international clients.

We have developed a reputation for safe, high-quality delivery of practical solutions to some of the world's most complex challenges.

Internationally, we provide programme management, consultancy and radiological protection services to commercial clients, government bodies and international agencies, which is made possible due to our worldwide network of resources, including Europe's largest health physics team.

Nuvia Group benefits from being part of Soletanche Freyssinet, a world leader in specialised civil and geotechnical engineering, and a wholly owned subsidiary of VINCI, the world's largest integrated concessions and construction group.

Products & Services

Nuvia's range of services supports the full project lifecycle, with experience and expertise acting as an enabler to define overall strategies and develop concepts that provide customers with safe, effective solutions.

We use our engineering design and technical consulting capabilities to develop scheme designs with supporting safety and environmental justification. Post-scheme design we offer a full engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) model to enable project realisation right through installation and commissioning.

Our operational capability provides comprehensive support of plant operations, maintenance, life extension and waste management, and includes a wide range of decontamination, decommissioning, demolition activities and site remediation work.

Nuvia's product catalogue offers an extensive range of cost-effective, off-the-shelf products, materials and design solutions to tackle a variety of requirements within a radiological environment. These include plant life extension, component and facility design, fire protection, seismic protection, flood protection, ventilation and containment systems, radiological monitoring and a number of tailored training packages for highly regulated industries.



As an integrated concessions-construction company, VINCI designs, finances, builds and operates infrastructure and facilities that help improve daily life and mobility.
