It is now even more complex and advance when it comes to civil engineering these days. In many other sub-fields that demand high standards of precision, the civil firms have started to broaden their scopes of work. Electrical wiring, concrete construction, road work and even traffic management is under the multitude of scopes for a company.  

There are now more ways to build new ideas with the technological advances in the civil construction industry.  

The civil construction services today makes up a huge chunk in the world’s economy. Thanks to the resurging construction market and a robust mining industry, this multi-billion dollar industry is enjoying a boom recently. The growth of smaller construction forms, which provides services in the area of civil works and building construction as well as maintenance and management solutions to the industrial and commercial sectors, the domestic and housing sectors, and to both government and private projects are encouraged through these developments.

Construction services; repair or remedial services, protective solutions, and maintenance services are all which are usually provided by the civil construction company. Aligning with industry and government or international standards for quality, safety, and environmental compliance, a construction company strives to make these possible. A company must be able to comply with health, safety and environmental regulations in the workplace still working on the management side.

Civil Construction Stages:-

To divide large projects into several civil construction stages which may be constructed independently or on conjunction with each other is something which is always desirable. Each stage may be constructed under separate contract for proper progress of civil construction. Proper sequence should be followed in regards to this. It should be well-analyzed in advance for the quantities of work and the duration of civil construction for each stage. For the proper execution, the individual stages should be given time estimates. The stages can be listed as follows:

Construction stages for highway project:

  • Setting up plant at the project site,
  • Clearing site,
  • Earthwork for laying embankment,
  • Civil construction of drainage structure for bridges and culverts,
  • Construction of proper pavement structures,
  • Installation of light poles, road signs, and signals.

Construction stages of a new water supply:

  • Clearing site,
  • Construction of dam type,
  • Construction of spillway and controls,
  • Installation of pumping house,
  • Installation of transmission lines and construction of tunnels,
  • Construction of water treatment plant.

Construction operation:

The construction stages are further divided into several operations to facilitate the job planning. By a classification of labors or a single type of equipment, an operation may be defined as a portion of project which may be performed. For the construction of R.C.C. retaining wall for the various operations can be listed as follows:

  • Machine excavation
  • Manual labor excavation
  • Form work erection
  • Reinforcement placing
  • Pouring concrete
  • Back filling the earth

Civil Construction Services:

Earthworks, concrete construction, fabricating form work, and using prefabricated concrete for various constructions is what civil constructions and structural services are offered by the civil construction companies.

A civil works company generally provides pipe laying and sewerage construction, concrete footing and foundation works, excavations, back fill, erection of walls and columns, slabs and roofing, grouting, underwater/marine construction are all under its construction services. To hire out its construction equipment to the clients is also what the company may choose to do.

Repair/remedial services

The useful lifespan of existing infrastructure and buildings are protected and prolonged with these services. Repairs, refurbishment, protection from and control of corrosion, as well as maintenance are what are included in this kind of services. Repair work can be done on bridges, factories, wharves, apartments and subdivisions, factories, and plants, industrial facilities and other sites without altogether closing down the function of these sites with a reliable construction company. Reinforcements, repair, and protection of steel structures, tank repairs, waterproofing, cathode protection are all included.

Protective coating services

The protection of structures with various types of coating is another major service of the civil construction companies. To protect against the impact, heat, chemical corrosion, and abrasion from various physical or chemical agents, these services uses linings and coatings. Fire proofing, coatings, and linings, for chemical storage tanks, and other types of retardants are the services included under coating services.
