Hire Civil Engineers

Civil engineering is a technical branch where engineers conceive, design, build, supervise, operate, construct, and maintain infrastructure projects and systems in the public and private sector. This includes roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment. Its specialties include architectural, structural, transportation, traffic, water resources and geotechnical engineering. Civil engineers plan, design and oversee construction and maintenance of building structures and infrastructure. They are project requirement experts and their role involves gathering project requirements, testing and evaluating building sites and materials, and managing the overall building process from start to finish. That means that civil engineers need to see and understand the big picture, and also be able to execute the tiniest of details. They are also employed in all the major construction projects carried out by the state or central government, such as public works departments (PWD), railways and military. They are generally hired as project engineers in private construction and real estate companies. If you are in infrastructure business and wish to get technical expertise for your projects, you can hire freelance civil engineer, thereby, saving on cost of a regular employee.

  • Visit the site, do required investigations and analyze the available data (maps, reports, tests, drawings and other).
  • Work on technical and feasibility studies to create a blueprint with given technical specifications.
  • Assess potential risks, materials and costs.
  • Coordinate with a variety of stakeholders.
  • Manage budget and purchase equipment/materials.
