Practical, constructable and innovative civil design solutions that create high-quality environments

The Stellar Projects civil design team creates practical, high quality environments and assets for the public and private sectors through innovation and attention to detail. Our projects include large-scale industrial developments through to public parks, sportsfields and playspaces, often working alongside other disciplines within Stellar Projects, ensuring that we can offer an end-to-end solution from investigation to construction delivery.

The civil team designers have in depth construction experience which optimises the development of pragmatic and constructable design solutions.

The difference…

The civil team have delivered countless projects from an idea to something on (or in) the ground. We provide realistic advice for our clients from early engagement around budget and timeframes prior to jumping into a design solution. This ensures expectation and budget is kept on the forefront prior to design being completed. This also provides an opportunity to discuss the issues and risks to stakeholders which may have not been identified at the start of the project, instead of at the end of the detailed design phase. Our team leaders have in depth construction and design experience and this allows the civil team to align the client’s scope with realistic expectations. Having this no surprises approach has been highly appreciated by all our clients.

All our designers have construction experience, and they look after their designs right through to completion. This structure ensures our design engineers have a good understanding of constructability and can carry this thinking right through the design process setting us apart from other consultancies. Having one engineer design and administer construction also allows for efficient decision-making during construction which contractors often appreciate. This philosophy has seen Stellar Projects develop a group of pragmatic design engineers who can apply civil engineering principals in an effective manner, delivering projects within budget and limiting construction variations.
