It has been a scorcher of a summer! In addition to our teams dealing with record temperatures while out in the field, our phones and email inboxes have stayed busy as we help existing clients and start projects with new ones.

2018 Civiltec Internship Program
2018 Civiltec interns
One of Civiltec's core values is to foster talent. Each summer, the firm takes on a number of interns to achieve this goal while supplementing the team's increased workload. For Summer 2018, Civiltec is happy to welcome six interns to join Gray Garrison, who began his internship last year. 

Expanding Services and Capabilities

" I hit my four-year anniversary in April this past year - it has been a blast! I have learned how to use our computer modeling program, InfoWater, to model existing and new water systems. Further, I have grown professionally: I have gained confidence in myself as an engineer through both speaking and writing, and have learned how essential communication is."
