CivilTEC was originally founded by Richard Gruiters in 2006. In 2010 Richard took a sabbatical from his business to assist with starting up a new Design Centre for a National Consultancy, before moving to an International Consultancy to further develop his skills and project experience, while also contributing to the management of the company’s national design and drafting resourcing.

In 2017 Richard decided it was time to get back to CivilTEC and carry on what he had started – working closely with clients to help them develop and deliver their vision, while providing exceptional customer service and project delivery.

The business continues to grow and is only limited by recruitment, so we are always on the lookout for talented Engineers to join the team.
