About Us

Civil Sphere Konsult (CSK) Consulting Engineers was founded in 1985.  It has its headquarters in Lagos the economic and business capital of Nigeria with regional offices in Abuja and Owerri.

Our focus is working in concert with other Professionals, Architects, Town Planner, Works Department of Corporations, Institutions and Government Departments to achieve the project goal of the client in all sectors of the economy.

We have been responsible for giving first class advice to our partners in achieving optimal solutions in Civil and Structural Engineering projects. In structural engineering we have delivered among other schemes, large span spaces, auditorium, halls which have translated to maximum flexibility in the use of the facilities.  We have given worshipers large halls, such as the FAITH TABERNACLE OTA near Lagos Nigeria, the largest Church Auditorium in the World.

In this domain where we practice, we ensure that users of any space designed for large audiences will experience maximum benefits and exposure for the particular event. Audiences must not have any obstruction in their view of the podium, alter, stage etc. the consequence of this is that we are the fore front of providing and designing large span roof structure to achieve an interior free support. Office floor spaces are designed to give the optimal lettable floor area and minimizing the use of artificial lighting. 

Our projects bear a distinct signature; they are unique, friendly, cost effective and truly engineered for the least maintenance cycle

Our principal on the account of this has won two national awards:

1.  The Engineer of the year 1999, the first ever in Nigeria 

2. Nominated into Nigerian Society of Engineers Hall of Fame in 2003
