Storm water

Artificial recharge, delay, filtration, clarification and purification by means of vegetation are natural water treatment methods that constitute an essential aspect in managing storm water, and planning requires expertise in water-related construction.

By managing storm water in a natural way, we strive to minimise the surface runoff generated from built-up surfaces, as well as flood peaks, in addition to improving the possibilities for the formation of seepage and ground water to ensure that the soil retains a natural level of moisture, even in a built environment. Managing storm water in a natural way improves the microclimate and has a positive impact on both human well-being and the success of vegetation. In addition, the water discharged into surrounding water systems is cleaner, which has a positive effect on water quality. Treating storm water in a natural way is also one way of making preparations for climate change as the fre-quency of heavy rainfall and dry periods is expected to increase. Our storm water team is made up of planners from various fields who offer diverse, professional consulting on technically demanding projects ranging from managing storm water to water-related construction and foundation engineering.
