Civil design FAQs

What is the difference between civil engineering and civil construction design? 

Civil engineering involves planning and designing infrastructure projects, focusing on their feasibility and functionality. Whereas civil construction design involves the detailed specifications and layouts for the physical construction and materials used in those projects. 


What does earthworks mean in construction? 

In construction, earthworks refer to the manipulation of soil and terrain, often to create level surfaces or foundations for structures. This can involve excavation, grading, or embankment to achieve the desired ground profile. 


What is the difference between civil design and structural design? 

Civil design deals with the layout and planning of infrastructure, such as roads and utilities. Structural design, in contrast, focuses on the detailed design of building elements, ensuring they can bear the intended loads and stresses.
