Civil Engineering

A Focused Definition

Within the industry, the service described as Civil Engineering is often a catch-all term. At Civiltech, our Civil Engineering services define and support foundations of our business, Municipal and Civil Site Engineering. We serve our municipal clients in their transportation capital improvement and maintenance programs, and we provide the expertise and disciplines to address all aspects of a project’s site related needs.

Civiltech offers our clients expert assistance in identifying and planning projects, and then finding and securing funding sources for project implementation. We have grant writing experts on staff and can help create a funding strategy and action plan. Our team has secured millions in funding dollars for communities through various state and federal grant sources. We stay up to date on potential opportunities, and work with our clients to maximize all available funding.

Roosevelt Road Watermain Lining project

Village of Lombard

The Village had frequent watermain breaks along the busy Roosevelt Road corridor, requiring expensive difficult repairs that were disruptive to traffic and businesses. The project, which involved inserting a resin-impregnated liner in 16,000 feet of existing piping, provided an innovative solution to rehabilitate the watermain with minimal construction impact to traffic, businesses, the environment, and other utilities.

Municipal Engineering

Municipalities routinely struggle with the need to maintain and improve infrastructure on tight budgets. Agencies must achieve the best expenditures of municipal funds while making critical decisions concerning the rehabilitation or replacement of infrastructure. We serve as an advocate for our municipal clients ensuring that limited resources are spent efficiently on improvements that will last. Civiltech also successfully assists communities in leveraging local funding to obtain funds from State and Federal grant sources.
