What Is Heavy Civil Engineering Construction?

Heavy and civil engineering construction contractors build sewers, roads, highways, bridges, tunnels, and other large government and city projects.  Heavy civil engineering construction projects are not normally performed on buildings and may include new projects, additions to existing projects, alterations, or maintenance and repairs.

The coordination and management of every heavy civil project poses very unique challenges. When taking on heavy civil projects, the focus needs to be on minimizing inconvenience to the public, local community, and motorists. It’s very important to accelerate the project schedule to meet critical goals and deliver quality work that can be counted on for decades.
