What is the American Society of Civil Engineers?

Civil engineers are a vital part of our nation’s infrastructure. Engineers are responsible for a wide range of projects in both the public and private sectors, and our expertise helps ensure the safety and longevity of roads, buildings, airports, bridges, homes, and more.

As new and improved building products & construction methods become available, it is becoming more and more critical for engineering firms to stay on top of these trends so that they can continue to serve in the public’s best interest.

The governing body at the American Society of Civil Engineers represents more than 150,000 members of the civil engineering profession in 177 countries. Founded in the mid-nineteenth century, the ASCE is the nation’s oldest engineering society.

Their mission of promoting and investing in sustainable projects helps ensure that organizations like us at CCM Engineering continue to raise the bar with our knowledge and competency.

At CCM Engineering, we are passionate about our trade, and it shows in not only our projects but in our company’s culture. Which is why we hold at the center of all we do the ASCE code of ethics:

  • Hold Safety Paramount
  • Service with Competence
  • Issue True Statements
  • Engineers shall issue public statements only in an objective and truthful manner.
  • Act as a Faithful Agent
  • Reputation by Merit
  • Uphold Professional Honor
  • Continue Professional Development
  • Treat All Persons Fairly

Whether you are starting a new development or looking to get a foundation analysis for your home, you must choose a reputable civil engineering firm to do the work, one that holds to the guiding principles of the American Society of Engineers that is at the heart of our industry.
