Civil, Municipal & Transportation Engineering
At Englobe, we measure success not only through our engineering solutions, but through your satisfaction and ability to reach your goals.
Englobe provides civil infrastructure engineering services for projects ranging from water supply, storage and distribution systems, wastewater collection and treatment and storm water management, to transportation projects including municipal streets, highways, active transportation networks, and rail facilities.
Our civil engineering professionals have spent more than 60 years designing solutions for public and private infrastructure across Canada. We pride ourselves on building solid relationships within the industry and with regulatory groups. In turn, this helps us guide you through approvals and achieve your goals.
We also build robust relationships with our clients. By listening and learning, we gain a deep understanding of your needs and expectations. This translates into tailored, cost-effective designs that meet project requirements, help communities thrive, and stand the test of time.
Reliable and sustainable infrastructure is essential to building vibrant, strong communities. Water treatment and supply systems, along with sewage collection and treatment, are among the most vital components in this type of development.
We’re excited to continue our long tradition of building communities through sound engineering. We bring innovation and project execution to municipal and civil infrastructure expansion and rehabilitation projects, with services ranging from feasibility and cost studies to detailed design, construction supervision and system commissioning.
To date, our Englobe team has designed and inspected the construction of more than 1,000 km of water distribution and transmission pipelines, and over 1,500 km of storm and sanitary sewer pipes. We also upgrade existing systems, contributing to the sustainability of our communities’ infrastructure assets and the health and happiness of their residents.
Parks and recreation
Social interaction, green spaces and recreation are at the heart of happy communities. At Englobe, we’re proud to add our expert engineering principles and skill to projects that nurture a true sense of community.
Our work reflects the values our communities cherish the most. Whether we’re developing constructed wetlands, permanent wet ponds that function as recreational facilities, or dry ponds that also act as sports fields, we’re helping to build a sustainable, happy and healthy future.
Children enjoying a day at the local water park, friends kicking a ball on a sports field, a couple strolling along a trail, or the sound of canoe paddles and birds singing as they wade through a neighbourhood pond… these are the signs of thriving communities. Let us help you build them.
Potable water systems
Clean drinking water is a must. We can help assure a sustainable supply for your community. Our Englobe team offers a wide range of services in the development and design of potable water treatment facilities, so industry and communities can reliably access safe drinking water.
Our experts work closely with clients and partners to evaluate treatment objectives and select the best, most cost-effective system. All factors – lifecycle cost sensitivity to power rates, land requirements, expansion potential, and esthetics – are carefully considered.
Englobe is a leading firm in designing and implementing wastewater collection and treatment systems. We work closely with clients to develop wastewater master plans and detailed designs for supporting infrastructure, including pipelines, lift stations, and treatment facilities. We provide site-specific solutions for visually-appealing, effective treatment systems that become valuable assets to the community.
In addition to engineering new systems, our team has developed expertise in replacing and upgrading deteriorating or undersized systems.
With the ever-increasing impacts of climate change, stormwater management is essential to preserve the quality and longevity of our community assets. Our drainage specialists apply cutting-edge tools and the latest techniques to achieve low-impact development flood prevention and mitigation. You could say our overall approach exemplifies Englobe’s commitment to sustainable development.
Our rigorous special planning also minimizes impacts on residents and properties.
Every control system – and client – is unique. We’ll adapt to what you need.
You can rely on Englobe to prioritize health and safety, and to deliver quality, value-added services for your control systems. We adapt our approach on a site-by-site basis to meet our clients’ specific requirements.
