Civil engineering involves the construction, design, and maintenance of the natural and physically built environment. Civil engineering is a discipline which is in high demand because of the various infrastructure projects that are executed every day. It ensures that when the natural or physically built environment is changing it conforms to industry standards making infrastructure durable and safe to use for a long time. The field involves any kind of civil work that caters to state government authorities, utility authorities and even local government councils.

Civil engineering companies are usually committed in their work so that they are able to supply the best quality, innovation, service, and performance to their clients. Companies ensure that they pay attention to their clients' needs so that they are able to achieve their goals and objectives.


The civil engineering services offered include:

  • Construction of driveways and footpaths
  • Construction of roads
  • Gutter and Kuber works
  • Landscape works
  • Paving works
  • Construction of storm water drainage
  • Demolitions and excavations
  • Water and sewer connections
  • Maintenance and restorations in paving, landscape, concrete and asphalt

Construction of roads

Civil engineering offers road construction services which include construction of roundabouts. The construction of roundabouts in civil engineering includes:

  • Traffic islands
  • Asphalt roadworks
  • Concrete gutter, kerb, footpaths and pram ramps
  • Laying of turfs
  • Linemaking

Construction of footpaths

Civil engineering involves the construction of footpaths which have the following features:

  • Concrete kerb, gutter, driveways, kerb ramps and footpaths being constructed
  • Utilities relocation services
  • Asphalt work in distributed areas
  • Landscape works associated with footpaths

Paving works

Paving works that are done in civil engineering include:

  • Gutter and kerb works, street furniture and tree bed areas
  • Streetscape works which may include urban stone paving with a cement and sand bed
  • Storm water drainage works involving pit construction and 150mm PVC pipes

Coordination with local authorities and the locals is very important when you undertake civil engineering tasks so that they are aware of what is happening.
