Civil Engineering with an Environmental Focus
Building better cities for current and future generations creates a real need for innovative civil engineering ideas and practice. We understand that when developing these solutions, a sympathetic integration of the environment, infrastructure, and built form are key to successfully creating spaces where everyone can thrive.
Each of our divisions at Sparks+Partners work hand-in-hand to build better solutions. Our dedicated civil engineering division complements our existing in-house skills and services by providing a natural transition from internal hydraulics to external civil services.
The Sparks+Partners civil engineering team offers a pool of talented engineers and draftspeople that enhance our practice overall. In line with our commitment to quality, these expert engineers keep us abreast of the latest in civil engineering technology and practices.
The dynamic civil team has worked on projects ranging from single-dwelling residential extensions to complete subdivisions, industrial and commercial developments, institutional and public works. The team is involved at all stages of a build, including initial concept designs, budgeting, authority approvals and liaisons, construction and most importantly, final delivery.
Sparks+Partners aims to offer simple solutions that are clear and concise, with comprehensive supporting designs and documentation. The ultimate goal is a smooth experience for you, focussed on reducing requests for information (RFIs) from authorities, architects, principals, sub-contractors and consultants.
From a technology perspective, Sparks+Partners civil can perform detailed 3D modelling using 12D, Civil 3D and Civil Site Design software. We can deliver drainage modelling using 12D DRAINS and HEC-RAS, and water quality modelling using the MUSIC program.
Armed with an in-depth understanding of planning and approvals processes, our civil team is dedicated to seeing out the successful completion of your projects from concept to construction.
