Community & Environment, Health & Safety
Supporting the Community
Dig It Civil is committed to supporting the local community. On every project, we work closely with our client, their surrounding neighbors, council and community stakeholders to minimise the impact of our works on the community by developing strategies to manage dust, noise and disruption to traffic and ultimately, to help build better communities.
Our team of qualified experts have a wealth of experience in residential gardens to parks, playgrounds, car parks and access roads. We work with universities, councils, hospitals, estates, government departments and property developers in Sydney to create safe and functional environments for the local community.
Dig It Civil is dedicated to being a socially responsible business, committed to considering the protection of the environment, community and clients at large. We understand that the environment is of the upmost importance, ensuring future generations will have the same quality of life we enjoy currently. We have a proven Environmental Management System (EMS) to ensure that all our work practices have minimal impact on the environment, we recycle where possible, by separating brick and concrete to be recycled into road base, selling good quality wood to timber merchants and mulching other wood products and green waste. We use best work practices to ensure that we are a sustainable business with environmental sustainability top of mind in all projects and work we complete.
