Supplying sustainable water and wastewater system solutions

Most of the world has old or inadequate drinking water networks and sewage systems—causing major social and environmental concerns. We provide a comprehensive overview of sewage systems and plan cost-effective renovation projects.

Increasing frequency of intense rainfall adds additional pressure on water and wastewater networks. So we help model and quantify the effects and financial consequences of climate change effects, as well as find solutions to proactively respond to those changes.

Ensuring safe and clean water distribution


We offer solutions to establish, recover, or optimise water and wastewater infrastructure. Helping utilities, municipalities, and industry stakeholders, we ensure safe and clean water distribution and supply, avoid sewage leaks and overflows, optimise water systems, and prepare for increased stormwater frequency.

With experts around the world, we offer a global outlook with local knowledge.
