Civil engineering

Engineering has been an facet of life since the beginnings of human existence. The division known as Civil engineering probably started between 4000 and 6000 years ago in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia when humans started to abandon a nomadic existence, thus causing a need for the construction of shelter, though it could conceivably have been much earlier. During this time, transportation became increasingly important and this led to the development of the wheel and of sailing boats.

The construction of Pyramids in Egypt (circa 2700-2500 BC) could be considered to be the first examples of large structure constructions. Gast offers Civil Engineering expertise in a number of different fields, including Bulk water supply, Water Purification, Canals, Sewerage, Agri Business and Geosynthetics.

There are many examples of early civil engineering still standing, and a fine example of this is the Roman aqueduct built more than 2000 years ago at Pont du Gard in France. 2000 years later, Gast is still building aqueducts and canals and is a world leader in this field. Applications we can help you with are widespread, and include Aquaculture, Bulk Oil Storage, Canal Linings, Environmental, Hazardous Waste, Landfill applications, Tank Linings, Leach Pads, Mining, Canals and Reservoirs, Tailing dams and Tunnel Linings . There is no civil engineering project that Gast will not undertake. Gast operates an assurance quality control system based on ISO 9001 principles. This system governs all aspects of the operation, but more specifically Design and Contract Overview, the Quality of Materials and Workmanship, Traceability, Inspection and Testing, and Document Control.
