What is Civil Engineering?
ICE (Institution of Civil Engineers) defines civil engineering as:
"Civil engineering is everything you see that’s been built around us. It’s about roads and railways, schools, offices, hospitals, water and power supply and much more. The kinds of things we take for granted but would find life very hard to live without."
At Dowhigh, civil engineering is at the very heart of what we do - and what we have been doing since 1975.
