Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering

Richter understands that one of the greatest risks posed to projects are the unknowns that lie in the ground. Early identification and management of these potential challenges is essential to the success of the project.

With ever increasing pressures on cost, time and safety, we provide cost-effective solutions with technical excellence; as well as striving to better understand our clients’ requirements and to push the boundaries of our professional knowledge.



With energy efficiency, carbon reduction, environmental considerations and sustainability providing such a major contribution to the built environment and major developments, we approach our projects with these issues at the forefront of our designs.

By adopting a collaborative approach with our clients, Richter are committed to providing designed solutions that optimise energy efficiency and are environmentally sound.
