Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including public works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, structural components of buildings, and railways.
Here are a few reasons why you might need to hire a civil engineer:
you want to purchase (or already own) land that you want to build a project on
You want a conceptual layout of your project
Utilities do not currently serve the property - a civil engineer must design this!
Rezoning is required for your project to be built
Construction drawings need to be submitted to the appropriate municipalities. *This requires a professional civil engineer's stamp.
You might need multiple engineers for your design project. We can help guide you in the right direction!
