Get involved with This is Civil Engineering

If you're interested in getting involved in highlighting civil engineering, or you've got a question about the campaign, then please let us know. Contact:


Our ‘This is Civil Engineering’ campaign showcases civil engineering by displaying huge banners at a wide range of construction sites across the country.

The banners show the public what civil engineering is and how the project will benefit the community. This could be through protecting homes and businesses from floods, ensuring drinking water is clean or providing the roads and railways that keep people connected.

Since the campaign was first launched in 2012, over 100 projects have joined - raising their ‘This is Civil Engineering’ banners and celebrating the vital role civil engineering plays in society.

Follow the campaign on Twitter via the #thisiscivilengineering hashtag
