Why work with us?

As process engineers, we understand the importance of water. Our clients’ core business may be municipal water and wastewater services, or alternatively water and wastewater treatment may be a utility on which their core business depends. We know that treating the right quantity of water to the right quality at the lowest whole life cost and carbon is fundamental. This is enabled with smart, efficient and experienced process engineering - we deliver innovative, cost-effective and sustainable wet infrastructure solutions to our clients. Smart process engineering starts by understanding water biochemistry and applying knowledge, experience and tools to identify the best value physical, chemical and biological treatment processes - before any construction begins. We specialise in all aspects of water treatment, from pure water and drinking water, through municipal and industrial wastewater, to biosolids treatment and energy recovery. We continue to provide industry-leading process engineering right through the project lifecycle, with value added in particular during commissioning and optimization.

We employ a range of proprietary and in-house developed digital tools to facilitate our work. We use our water quality analysis tool to quickly understand past, present and future trends. We have process selection, sizing and performance models that allow us to optimize existing assets or identify the best solution for new ones. This enables us to quickly and efficiently evaluate a complex range of options with a clearly auditable trail, that underpins strategic planning and stands up to Regulator scrutiny.

Our people demonstrate thought leadership and align us with our clients’ values and desired outcomes at project and programme level. We champion sustainable, best value solutions and deliver them more effectively by being, individually and collectively, faster, smarter and more reliable.
