1. Inability to Hire Civil Engineers/Civil Engineering Drafters:

According to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), civil engineering firms are facing significant challenges in hiring and retaining skilled civil engineers. There simply are not enough engineers to handle all the planned or ongoing infrastructure work in the U.S. This issue has been exacerbated by the recent influx of hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding over the next several years from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act. Furthermore, many young people are not exposed to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields early in their education, leading to a lack of awareness and understanding of the potential opportunities in these fields.

2. Rising Costs of Civil Engineering Design:

The costs associated with in-house staff, including salaries and benefits, training, recruitment, office infrastructure, equipment, management, taxes, software licenses, and insurance, are all rapidly increasing. This compels business owners to seek cost-cutting solutions. So, what is the solution to reduce the costs of civil engineering project design?

3. Management Burdens and Retention of Civil Engineers:

The shortage of civil engineers has created significant challenges for business owners, but managing and retaining staff is even more difficult, stressful, and costly, ranging from project managers, civil engineers to drafters, modeling staff, and CAD drafting personnel. Work styles have changed significantly. Today, civil engineers are more interested in jobs that offer greater freedom, autonomy, and flexibility, which affects management and performance evaluation. If there were a solution to this problem, business owners in the civil engineering sector could confidently and sustainably develop their companies.

4. Unstable Projects and Clients:

This is also a major concern for many business owners, especially small and medium-sized civil engineering firms. At times, there are very few projects, not enough work for in-house civil engineers. Conversely, there are times when there are too many projects, a sudden increase, and not enough resources to handle them. Business owners face tough choices: rejecting new projects and clients means losing opportunities for collaboration, revenue, and profit, while accepting them without sufficient resources leads to delays, subpar quality, and loss of reputation. This is a common concern for most small and medium-sized civil engineering firms. We ourselves experienced this difficult period five years ago, but we overcame it all and have grown into a strong team capable of serving many clients and projects simultaneously while ensuring high quality and quick turnaround times.

5. Bulky Team Structure:

For larger companies, the challenge lies in operations: from costs, benefits, insurance, taxes, to infrastructure, office space, work efficiency, activities, corporate culture, processes, and systems, everything is cumbersome and resource-intensive. The current trend is to optimize the workforce, focusing on core values like sales, marketing, customer service, and optimal design solutions, while outsourcing basic tasks such as civil engineering design, civil engineering drafting, civil engineering modeling, and CAD drafting. Have you outsourced any part of your project yet?

6. Wanting to Scale Up Your Business but Don’t Know How:

Currently, you are doing an excellent job handling everything from client interactions, consulting, designing, drafting project plans, submitting to the government, to making revisions to satisfy clients and meet city regulations, along with countless other tasks. You might be thinking, “If I continue working this way, how can my business grow?” or “How do I develop my business?” So, what is the solution here?
