Standard Handbook for Civil Engineers 

Civil engineering is that field of engineering concerned with planning,
design and construction of natural
resource development, regional and
local water supply and storm water facilities, waste
management facilities, transportation facilities, tunnels, buildings, bridges, and other structures for
the needs of people. Persons who are qualified by
education and experience and who meet state
requirements for practicing the profession of civil
engineering are called civil engineers.


The ultimate objective of design is to provide, in
precise, concise, easy-to-comprehend form, all the
information necessary for construction of the
project. Traditionally, designers provide this information in drawings or plans that show what is to
be constructed and in specifications that describe
materials and equipment to be incorporated into
the project. Designers usually also prepare, with
legal assistance, a construction contract between
the client and a general contractor or two or more
prime contractors. In addition, designers generally
observe or inspect construction of the project. This
should be done not only to help the client ensure
that the project is constructed in accordance with
plans and specifications but to obtain information
that will be useful for designing future projects.
