Water Management


We take a holistic and sustainable approach to managing and minimising natural resource use. We support Governments, investors, developers, manufacturers, utilities, and corporations worldwide. We help to mitigate risks, meet regulatory requirements, reduce the costs of resource use and disposal, and create strategies for a sustainable future.

Water Measurement and Efficiency

The scarcity and cost of water has made water a critical business issue. We have developed innovative end-to-end water footprinting and measurement techniques that comprehensively and visually present water profiles, highlighting the water intense areas of a business, particularly those drawing water from regions where water is scarce. This lets us focus our efficiency programmes on the areas that will make a material impact. Efficiency programmes for buildings may include rainwater harvesting, improved storm water management, groundwater resource replenishment, and holistic water re-use. We assess water use in the design, manufacture, distribution and use of products and have green product design experts and online tools to reduce water-use across the entire product life cycle. We also measure and implement efficiencies across entire organisations and their associated supply chains.

Water Through the Development Cycle

Our experts can consider the water implications across the entire development cycle, providing you with a holistic perspective to enable efficient and effective designs. Our expertise spans: water demand modelling; water quality appraisals and impact assessments to aid planning applications; wastewater treatment strategies; flood risk assessments; drainage strategies and sustainable drainage systems; surface water management plans; contaminated groundwater remediation; and more. We aim to identify issues at the early stages to optimise use and spatial and master planning so as to maximise land value, minimise project costs and deliver sustainable long-term solutions for communities.

Water Assets, Infrastructure and Supply

We work with authorities, utilities and developers to preserve, manage and improve water assets, infrastructure and supply. Our advice spans water quality and pollution through the design of mitigation and restoration solutions, as well as continuous monitoring programmes, the health and status of wetlands and water-based ecosystems where we devise innovative wetland management techniques, to the design of water infrastructure and waterworks. From renewables to traditional water facilities, we support hydropower plants, offshore wind farms and associated harbour engineering, through to water desalination plants.
