Water Engineering

We help clients secure funding with evidence-based decision-making, offering innovative drainage solutions for flood management and environmental enhancement.

Our Services

From initial feasibility, our water engineering team use bespoke appraisal techniques to facilitate better decision-making based on sound evidence and hydraulic modelling. Our industry-leading approach has helped our clients to secure millions of pounds worth of external funding for their projects. 

Our team of experienced water engineers delivers traditional drainage engineering, but our real passion lies in designing innovative sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) to manage surface water and mitigate flooding while enhancing the natural environment and improving water quality. 

We deliver reliable flood risk assessments and drainage strategies to the private sector, taking on complex problems in residential and industrial sites and creating sustainable solutions that suit each client’s budget and the planning authority’s requirements.
