Civil engineering has long been a major component of the tech industry.
The technology has attracted some of the world’s most renowned engineers, including Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and many of its components are used in industries ranging from aircraft to energy storage.
In the US, the Civil Engineering Department of the US Department of Energy is responsible for developing technologies to improve the country’s civil engineering capabilities.
The agency is currently looking to acquire technology and services from three firms to accelerate its Civil Engineering program.
The three companies, including Blue Origin, have each raised more than $1 billion in venture capital funding in recent years.
The companies are looking to use the funds to expand their offerings and support new businesses.
Blue Origin is already building its second headquarters in New Jersey and is planning to build a third headquarters in Texas, according to Bloomberg.
The third company, Civil Engineering Services, is seeking to acquire the technology from a private equity firm.
Both companies will have to file a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission by the end of the year.
The companies are expected to discuss the acquisition in a conference call with investors on Tuesday.
Both Blue Origin and Civil Engineering are currently based in New York City.
Both have raised more $1.5 billion in capital.
