Our mission is to provide advice and assistance to today’s global community in delivering sustainable infrastructure for tomorrow.

Throughout our history, we have been providing water and wastewater engineering services to authorities serving millions of consumers. We have used our engineering services to help develop more than five-thousand kilometres of highways, making us one of Ireland’s most respected consulting engineering practices. We have worked in more than 40 countries throughout the developing world. Our employees have access to a range of major projects in Ireland, the UK, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
