What is civil engineering?

“Civil engineering is everything you see that’s been built around us It’s about roads and railways, schools, offices, hospitals, water, and power supply and much more. The kinds of things we take for granted but would find life very hard to live without. Civil engineers design, create and connect up the world around us. They help make our villages, towns and cities work for the people that live there.” – ICE Civil engineering explained | Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)

Different client, developers/contractors will operate in different ways, we develop our civil designs with this in mind, tailoring each design to meet and match the specific and insure it is in line with your preferences but also in accordance with regulatory standards.

It all starts with understanding your project requirements and the existing site, it ends with the most cost-effective solution that meets the initial brief. We are not shy to offer any alternative solutions and stive to make improvements to create more space, save you money and create sustainability. we provide support to the design team by producing considered design solution in line with current codes and guidance to make architectural layouts work with the existing site constraints and features. Our scope of works spans from concept stage, providing input to the production of site proposals.
