Civil Engineering

  • Bulk Earthworks Designs, where our approach is always to firstly, optimize cost by balancing cut and fill volumes as far as possible but taking cognisance of ground conditions.

  • Roads and Stormwater Designs for building projects are always done in conjunction with the appointed Architects, Landscape Architects and Green building Consultants.

  • Water and Sewer Designs which make provision for both internal (on-site) as well as external (bulk off-site), with good cooperation and coordination with the Architects being of vital importance. On-site solutions and re-use of effluent water are critical considerations at the planning stage of a project.
