A significant part of our role is to characterise the site environs of all our projects within occupied areas.  All of our projects present the complex challenge of carrying out intrusive construction work below ground within the public, private or commercially owned domains.  We understand the complexities these instances presents and how these can be successfully managed throughout design and construction.

We deliver a broad portfolio of technical and operational services to improve network performance and asset resilience. The work is diverse and calls upon a range of technical expertise and skills including modelling and identification of water and wastewater service related performance improvement requirements.

As part of the Mains Cleaning program we have developed an innovative and low-cost technique to assess discolouration risk to customers, called the Cleanliness Index. This allows significantly faster decision-making on the necessary improvement measures required to reduce customer risks.

We’ve also developed a methodology to carry out rapid assessments of flooding risk to customers and inform stakeholders in a consistent and easy to understand format. Our automated process delivers efficiencies in both time and costs.
