Our source-to-sea approach delivers integrated engineering and environmental services throughout the water cycle, creating a balance between the needs of today and smart planning for tomorrow. Helping evaluate multiple and competing objectives and priorities to determine the best possible outcome and usage of water resources is what we do best. From establishing new water resources to achieving the most from existing resources, our experts support hundreds of projects every year.
The intense pressure on all aspects of water, and limited budgets means that water should be managed in its entirety, if it is to be managed effectively. Using our decades of experience solving environmental and water infrastructure challenges around the world, we developed the One Plan approach for integrated water management planning. We bring together the best elements of Water Sensitive Urban Design, One Water, Blue-Green Cities and Integrated Resource Planning to identify robust and value added projects while considering the complete water cycle.
Our holistic method to managing stormwater approaches each assignment with an understanding of the bigger picture to create a balance and practical planning for today and future operations. We combine state-of-the-art policy and planning through design, construction and operation while employing low impact development and green infrastructure to reduce operation and environmental impacts.
Amec Foster Wheeler works with customers to retain and convey surface water using dams, levees and reservoirs. Our projects have consisted of dams ranging from small agricultural dams to some of the largest civil works projects in the world. We offer a broad range of integrated services, from permitting services and siting studies to geotechnical investigations, hydrologic studies, design, construction oversight and instrumentation.
