GCU has provided consulting services since 1998 to Government bodies and private sectors covering the wide range of civil & structural engineering works. GCU has successfully undertaken works from inception to completion for small, medium and large-scale development projects.
The infrastructural design components include earthworks, site drainage, road access and circulation system, water supply and sewerage. The structural components ranged from reinforced concrete, prestress concrete, structural steel, timber, etc. Our experience in overall planning and co-ordinated design development for earthworks, roads, drainage, sewerage water supply as well as structures enables us to propose to clients, where feasible, options for phased implementation of the works while fully meeting the project’s technical requirements.
The Engineers are well conversant with all authority requirements for the design and construction stages, and will ensure quality of construction to facilitate final approval and the subsequent issue of the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) by the relevant local authority.
The general scope of C & S engineering consulting services includes but is not limited to the following:
- Feasibility Studies
- Preliminary Planning and Cost Estimation
- Preliminary Engineering
- Detailed Engineering Design
- Preparation of Project Specification and Bill of Quantities
- Tendering and Tender Management
- Construction Supervision
- Project Management
- Contract Administration
- Independent Checking and Quality Assurance
- Engineering Audits of Infrastructure and Structural Works
GCU has nurtured highly experienced engineers who possess the ability to consider all pertinent factors affecting design output such as user expectations, adherence to local planning guidelines and regulations, potential environmental impacts, allocated timeframes and budgets, and to work within all these constraints to achieve the most cost-effective engineering solution for any particular project. GCU currently has experienced Engineers with C & S background and supported by experienced draughtsman. The C & S team is supported by a strong geotechnical design team to undertake complex projects.
GCU has adequate engineering software including several in-house spread sheet programmes for C & S analysis and design.
