Our Civil Engineering expertise involves structural repairs to bridges, culverts, tunnels, river defences and much more. However, what is of interest to many of our clients is not so much what we do, but how we do it. Castle Group has established a reputation for high quality and innovative civil engineering works, especially in bridge repairs. Our projects often take place in some of the more environmentally sensitive areas of Scotland, very often over or near water.
The very essence of our expertise is sustainability, through repairing structures rather than complete replacement, and looking at problems from different angles. This approach often reduces the financial and environmental impacts.
