Creating landmark projects across Austin

Civilitude Group of Companies started in 2010 with the founding of Civilitude Engineers and Planners which has become one of the fastest growing companies in Central Texas over the last 11+ years. Civilitude provides civil engineering services, but more than anything it solves complex problems. Other verticals have been created over the years to solve other problems of great magnitude like Affordable Housing. They include Capital A Housing, Constructinople, Urbanuity, Fabitat, and K921 Management. The Civilitude Group exists to make the greater Austin area a better place to live, work and play for ALL people.

Civilitude is one of the fastest growing companies in Central Texas. We provide civil engineering and planning services centered around land development. In Austin, we have learned alongside our clients how many different variables and unforeseen obstacles can derail or delay a project. We have grown and expanded our skill-set to meet those challenges. Civilitude is big enough to get the job done on any development project, but nimble enough to be creative problem-solvers while providing exceptional customer service.

Constructinople is a woman and minority-owned business that brings the services of design and build together as an offering. This brings better integration and seamlessness required for every successful development project. The team focuses on projects to cater to the demand for affordable housing in Austin.

Capital A Housing is a development company of affordable and mixed-income projects from a quarter acre to 50 acres in the Austin area. Its niche is “the developer people don’t hate” – specializing in projects that are responsive to neighborhood, city, and elected official concerns and aspirations; that deliver outstanding amenities, affordability, and services; and in the process accomplish rezonings or other permissions that would be politically infeasible for more standard developments. We call it “Development for Good.”

Urbanuity specializes in market-rate real estate development for in-fill projects to optimize vacant spaces. The projects are thoughtfully developed to enhance functionality and impart a vibrant character to out-of-action city spaces.

Fabitat is the newest entity in the group that that specializes in realty brokerage and property management. Fabitat manages sales, HOA, and maintenance of multiple projects across Austin in both affordable and market-rate housing.

K921 Management serves as the internal management company for all Civilitude group entities leading the accounting, HR and other business operations efforts. As part of K921, Capital B Equity Partners was formed to invest in entrepreneurs and small businesses with high growth potential.
