Yes, civil engineers and landscape architects collaborate for many projects. An extensive site analysis is the first step in the design process. This analysis reflects any areas that might be of concern during the design and construction. If an area is going to be suffer severe damage, then the construction might be moved to a location that will not be affected as much.
In the United States large civil engineering projects like bridges, roads, airports etc. require by law an environmental impact statement and environmental impact assessment depending on the work to be performed. This requirement was created by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1970. Additionally, there are other noise, light, air quality, water quality, endangered and threatened species, farmland, wetland, coastal acts have to be adhered to. The design process under NEPA regulation requires analysis with respect to the affected environments, proposal of alternative actions, public hearing and response before the EIS/EIA can be finalized.
