Civil Engineering

Inspired solutions… Reshaping the world around us

Our civil engineering practice touches all aspects of the built environment — the full lifecycle from planning and design, to permitting, construction, and operations.

Leveraging decades of experience, CEC’s civil engineering team is set apart by the expertise of principled engineers who understand the elements of good design. Our engineers work seamlessly alongside architects, key stakeholders, and construction professionals as part of a highly collaborative design process.

Client-focused civil engineering expertise

Our clients benefit from the collaboration of CEC’s talented land development, geotechnical, transportation, and structural engineers. In addition, our practice is strengthened by the expertise of landscape architects and planners, as well as professionals in stormwater/water quality management, sustainability, green infrastructure design, property condition assessments, accessibility and mobility, and site infrastructure maintenance and rehabilitation.

This collaborative approach incorporates well-established science-based methodologies and solid engineering principles with the latest design technologies, such as new AutoCAD 3D tools, InfraWorks, BIM, Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), LiDAR scanning, drones, and more.
