Safe, sustainable, efficient, and assured engineering outcomes.

We develop and deliver outcome-focussed safe, sustainable, efficient and assured, engineering solutions for the water, wastewater and industrial sectors.

Our engineering and design team has a successful track record of service delivery across the asset lifecycle, from asset diagnostics and needs verification, feasibility and optioneering through to outline and detailed design, construction, commissioning, and operational support for infrastructure and non-infrastructure assets.

We support the following client drivers:

  • Environmental risk reduction
  • Sustainability, affordability, and social value
  • Regulatory compliance

We support tier 1 and tier 2 customers across the asset lifecycle, providing multidisciplinary engineering and design services, including:

  • Environmental, process and design safety
  • Process engineering
  • Civil engineering and design
  • Structural engineering and design
  • Mechanical engineering and design
  • Electrical engineering and design
  • Control and instrumentation engineering and design
  • Project engineering
  • Design management

Our proactive and reactive infrastructure management goes across your network, from water treatment work outlets to customer taps.

Embedding the key themes


Our teams are experienced in delivering engineering and design services across the asset lifecycle. They are outcome-focused and have the ability to look from left to right, and right to left, developing the optimum solutions and delivering value at each lifecycle phase.


Our Head of Technical Assurance drives consistency in our output. Our systems of work and our approach to technical competency provide delivery assurance and ensure successful outcomes are realised right first time. Our technical assurance delivery framework delivers design solutions that can be built and operated safely, meet the client's requirements and achieve a high level of performance in operation.


Our lifecycle management process ensures that sustainable outcomes are measured, monitored, and realised at every step of the engineering and design process, from the front-end through to delivery.

Our value

Sustainable - We ensure sustainable outcomes are identified, planned, monitored, and realised at every step across the asset delivery lifecycle.

Efficient – Our Engineering and Design team works in close collaboration with our other Asset Management and Commercial service lines. This cross fertilisation of knowledge and the adoption of best practice ensures we deliver successful outcomes efficiently for our clients.

Assured – Our design lifecycle management approach ensures that our people are empowered with knowledge, systems, and processes for right-first-time service delivery.
