In response to the global shift in technology, a heavy burden of responsibility is placed on the sciences to act in the best approach. This study reviews from a different perspective about the collaboration of two fields of science: engineering and human geography. In the management of construction on a large scale, it becomes essential for engineers in development planning and the construction process that consider social and environmental impacts. Thus, the involvement of other fields of knowledge that understand the interaction between humans and the environment becomes a crucial point in efforts to preserve the environment and natural resources. Human geography, which studies human interaction with the environment, will play an essential role in bridging for civil engineers to understand better the social and environmental impacts that arise in a construction project.
