Inspired solutions…

Reshaping the world around us

Working seamlessly alongside architects, key stakeholders, and construction professionals, our civil engineering practice touches all aspects of the built environment: planning and design, permitting, construction, and operations. You’ll benefit from CEC’s talented land development, geotechnical, transportation, and structural engineers; landscape architects and planners; and professionals well-versed in stormwater/water quality management, sustainability, green infrastructure design, property condition assessments, accessibility and mobility, and site infrastructure maintenance and rehabilitation. We apply the latest design technologies, such as new AutoCAD 3D tools, InfraWorks, BIM, Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), LiDAR scanning, drones, and more.
