OUR HISTORY

Civitech Consulting Group, Inc. was founded in October 2005 by three Civil Engineers: Joseph Peteza, Elmer Candaza, and Juan Victor Valencia.

 

Banking on the idea that outsourced engineering can be better, the company was incorporated and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on November 29, 2005. The team started by providing its first client, JGC Philippines, with consulting engineers who had been specifically trained for the work to be done for their clients. Since then, Civitech has evolved from a trusted structural design team into a fast-growing multi-discipline engineering services provider and, most importantly, established enduring relationships with its clients.

 

With more than a decade of experience in the field of engineering design and commitment to innovation, Civitech has developed a reputation for offering clients unique solutions that meet their needs.

 

From assuming the role of designers to construction implementers and being on the developer/client side, we have seen an opportunity to move forward in the industry by promoting quality as the basic tenet in design.
