Outreach into our communities
We like to give something back to share the benefits of our success and our skills. Our people contribute to industry events and programmes such as CIRIA research initiatives or AGS programmes to improve best practices.
We are passionate about helping build the future of tomorrow’s engineers. We operate a STEM programme where our engineers frequently visit schools and colleges local to our offices to encourage more young people to consider a career in engineering. We have an appointed STEM coordinator, Keisha Smith, to run our programmes. Keisha worked for 10 years as an Engineer, then Principal Engineer at CGL. To contact her please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2016 CGL published The Female Face of Civil Engineering to provide role models that show teenage girls and their families that a career in construction is both achievable and rewarding. (PDF version)
We offer CPD training where we visit our clients’ offices to brief them on topics such as temporary works, deep basements and ground modelling, managing risks on brownfield sites and material management to minimise waste soil disposal. If you are interested in CPD training please let us know via our contact form here.
We work to a clear Mission, Vision and set of Values which are built around exemplary client service plus supporting and developing our staff, whilst recognising our responsibilities to the world around us.
CGL also make regular donations to charities nominated by staff across our offices. Since 2016 CGL has sponsored two teachers at the Shree Sheetala School in Nepal to offer lessons in maths, science and IT.
Since 2006, our employees have been involved in the Payroll Giving Scheme, donating monthly from their pay to around 20 well-known as well as locally-based charities.
