Civil (Ground Engineering)

EllisDon’s Civil Ground Engineering team provides innovative and practical solutions to complex construction and engineering challenges on a vast amount of projects across all sectors.

Bringing over 30 years of heavy construction industry and engineering experience, our in-house team draws on our extensive expertise to provide support and oversight on every aspect of a project including design, estimating, cost analysis, value engineering, contractual scope and construction of ground engineering systems. From conceptual design to commissioning our team of professionals can be engaged at any stage to advise on and develop custom solutions to the unique requirements and challenges of any project.

We take a collaborative approach, working alongside project teams, consultants, sub trades, and stakeholders, to analyze projects and ensure that any proposed systems or solutions meet constructibility, schedule and cost requirements.

With our construction and engineering background, we fill in the gap between theory and practice; client and consultants; consultants and subtrades. We provide schedule and cost savings.
