Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering Design and Construction has been a core of Thurlow Consulting’s practice beginning in 1994. During this period, the civil engineering team has undertaken a multitude of civil engineering briefs. These have ranged from 2 lot subdivisions to 225 lot subdivisions including earthworks, water, wastewater, stormwater and roading.

These projects involved Thurlow team from inception right through to completion involving the original scheme planning and determination of Lot or unit layouts. As a firm of professional land surveyors, we understand the importance of research to governing parameters of the site including town planning, services, geotechnical, landscaping and traffic impacts. We therefore are happy to involve ourselves in teams in this process and have an excellent relationship with many specialist sub consultants that can be brought onto the complex subdivisions to assist.

Our design team utilises modern software and three-dimensional modelling packages which allows quick and efficient design and rationalisation of design to ensure the best product for our client. We are a small, but well experienced team, that punches above our weight, we can offer our clients excellent design results.

We prepare bills of quantities in tender documents to assist our clients in obtaining the best construction contract for the project. We also act as engineer to the contract and manage the contract to its conclusion, ensuring that the project finishes both on time and on budget, meeting the various requirements of resource consents, engineering and building consents to ensure the project finishes with the release of titles as quickly as possible after the completion of construction activities.

  • earthworks
  • wastewater reticulation, including pump stations, treatment both on and offsite
  • stormwater ponds, detention, retention and treatment
  • water reticulation including boosting pump stations
  • road and earthworks
