The Story Behind the Civil West Logo

Compass

For a millennia, seafarers relied upon the mariner’s compass to accurately determine their current position and direction. Along with other instruments, a talented sailor could chart a course from his starting location to where he wanted to go.

The founders of Civil West Engineering Services, Inc chose the mariner’s compass as the company logo to symbolize our origins, direction, and end point. The compass reminds us where we came from, and that we have charted a course to where we want to go and what we want to become.

Our corporate and personal compasses accurately point us in the right direction and give us a sense of purpose. They impede us from straying from our intended path as long as we follow the compass needle. In everything we do, we want to make good decisions, stay on course, and remember what our values are. Our logo reminds of this in all we do.
