Water utility infrastructure
We provide advice and deliver engineering solutions from planning, feasibility, design and procurement to construction supervision to optimise water and wastewater networks. Supported by the latest analytical and modelling packages and computer aided design, we help our clients define problems and prioritise investment programmes.
We reduce the impact of flooding whether from rivers, the sea, urban drainage, flood defence failure or groundwater. Not only do we design and implement flood alleviation schemes, we also develop strategies to guide sustainable management of flood risk in catchments and urban areas.
We build forecasting systems to provide advanced warning of significant flood events and develop emergency plans, so that when flood events do occur, the stakeholders affected will have procedures in place to manage such incidents safely.

flood emergency planning leaflet,
developer flood risk assessment leaflet,
critical infrastructure and flooding leaflet.
Dams and reservoirs
Our team can inspect, design and construct all types of dams and reservoirs. We help to address client concerns relating to safety, stability, flooding and seismic activity by conducting assessments and developing integrated solutions to reduce such risks.
Regulatory compliance and research
We provide a detailed understanding and assessment of environmental regulation and policy to help determine what impact the drivers will bring. We have delivered financial savings and reduced the carbon emission impact of regulation and policy by working collaboratively with regulators and regulated stakeholders.
We have a deep understanding of rivers from rehabilitation and design of waterway structures to navigation, hydropower development, water supply and recreational purposes. We are skilled in the development of an integrated approach to the planning, management and control of rivers, waterways and river environments to ensure their sustainable use and protection.
For more information you can read our managing rivers brochure.
Surface water and drainage
We have the skills required to develop effective surface water management plans and contribute to water cycle studies, which draw on our extensive experience in surface water drainage, flood risk, sustainable drainage systems (SUDS), water quality, GIS database development and engineering design.
For more information, please read our surface water management brochure.
Freshwater ecology is the study of the relationships and interactions between organisms within their environment. In the aquatic ecology business our main areas of concern are with flowing water in watercourses of all sizes (small streams through to main rivers), standing waters (from small ponds to large lakes) and wetlands (bog, fen, mire and wet grassland systems).
For more information, please read our freshwater ecology brochure.
Hygiene and sanitation
We work within developing countries around the world to improve sanitation and health conditions in both the rural and urban environment. Our specialists provide integrated and innovative technical and management solutions to enhance water safety, improve sanitation and change hygiene behaviour.
