Water is the original focus of our engineering firm. Our Water division offers you solutions for all technical matters pertaining to hydraulic engineering, hydropower, and water management, with an emphasis on urban water management, and we do so throughout all phases of a project, from stocktaking and inventory assessment to formulating ideas, conducting studies, developing plans, and obtaining approvals, to and including the built implementation and supervision of the construction. In so doing, we stand for interdisciplinary solutions from a single source.
We apply technical and economic savvy to develop project-specific responses to the issues at hand by leveraging state-of-the-art technology while taking into account nature conservation, the impact on townscapes and landscapes, and all pertinent constraints affecting legal approval. We frequently also assume responsibility for the overall project management and coordination along with tasks in public relations, particularly with regard to interfacing with the pertinent government authorities, public interest organizations, citizens, and other stakeholders.
Today many projects – but especially large, complex ones – are in need of more than just a view of the proverbial “bigger picture.” We bring together our other fields of activity for smooth collaboration with the Water division as needed for each particular task. Examples of this are the entire scope of planning contributions related to nature conservation (Landscape conservation plans, Environmental impact assessment, etc.) as well as structural engineering, geotechnics/geology, control engineering, building services, and the modeling of groundwater flows, flowing waterbodies, and water quality.
