Civil

Since 1954 our civil engineers have paved the way for hundreds of projects, from road design and layout for streets and highways, to subdivision development and utility work, to developing the perfect parks in which to play. DGR doesn’t only design streets and subdivisions, we layout the foundation for communities. Our civil engineers know that whether it’s small or large, metro or rural, for communities or corporations, each project paves the way for a better day.
