Building Trust Through Excellence

Our reputation is built on delivering high-quality innovative solutions with integrity, safety, and innovation at the forefront.

Our Story

Founded in early 2016, Civil Infrastructure Group is a specialist subcontracting company dedicated to the construction of reinforced and post-tensioned concrete structures. Our friendly and customer-focused approach sets us apart, as we prioritize engineering support and site safety to deliver innovative and high-quality projects.

With a team of founding partners who collectively possess over 100 years of industry knowledge and experience in engineering, design, tendering, and project delivery, we have quickly established strong relationships with numerous tier 1 and tier 2 contractors through our existing networks.

At CIG, we offer a comprehensive range of services including Form/Reo/Pour, Piling, and Steel Fabrication. By combining these capacities, we provide clients with the opportunity to streamline their projects by consolidating multiple subcontract packages. This approach minimizes subcontractor interface, improves management efficiency, and simplifies project timelines.

We firmly believe that building lasting relationships with both our clients and staff is crucial to our success. Our ultimate goal is to become the industry’s premier construction contractor, attracting the best talent and forging strong partnerships with clients who value our expertise and dedication.

With an unwavering commitment to engineering excellence, we actively participate in every phase of the project. By self-performing the majority of our work, we can reduce costs while developing and maintaining the necessary skills at both the management and site levels. Currently, our team consists of over 50 experienced engineers and more than 10 undergraduate engineers. This diverse and skilled workforce enables us to deliver intelligent solutions, ensuring the highest standards of quality and safety in all our operations.
