Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering has been a principal emphasis of HCL since our inception. Our experience varies widely and we are continually challenged by interesting and diverse projects. This experience is beneficial to both our private and governmental sector clients.

Development requirements have evolved and become more complex requiring civil engineers to be more knowledgeably and experienced in environmental protection, government agency policy, development goals, building codes, review procedures, and processing.

Our professional staff prides itself on our good working relationships with regulatory agencies, which benefit our client by providing a smoother entitlement process.

Our multidisciplinary staff provides a well balanced scope of professional services from land development and transportation systems to facilities and environmental engineering.
