Civil Engineering Projects
Civil Engineering takes place on all levels in the public sector from municipal through to federal levels and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies. Civil Engineering is responsible for the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings. It is traditionally broken into several sub-categories such as: environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering, surveying, and construction engineering.

Structural Engineering Projects
Structural Engineering theory is based upon physical laws and empirical knowledge of the structural performance of different geometries and materials. Structural engineering design utilizes a relatively small number of basic structural elements to build up structural systems that can be very complex. Structural Engineering is responsible for the analysis and design of structures that support or resist loads economically. Structural Engineers are most commonly involved in the design of buildings and large non-building structures but they can also be involved in the design of machinery, medical equipment, vehicles or any item where structural integrity affects the item's function or safety. Structural Engineers must ensure their designs satisfy given design criteria, predicated on safety (e.g. structures must not collapse without due warning) or serviceability and performance (e.g. building sway must not cause discomfort to the occupants).

Survey Projects
Surveying is a requirement in the planning and execution of nearly every form of construction. It’s most familiar uses are in the fields of legal boundaries for land ownership, transportation, building construction, communications, and general mapping. Surveying is the technique of collecting evidence related to legal boundaries and the science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional space position of points and the distances and angles between them. These points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and are often used to establish topography maps and boundaries for ownership or governmental purposes. In order to accomplish their objective, surveyors use elements of law, geometry, engineering, trigonometry, mathematics and physics.
