The provision of potable water, the treatment of waste water and the management of surface water are core competencies of the ByrneLooby water engineering group. We work with government agencies, water utility companies, industry regulators and contractors to develop specialised solutions for large water infrastructure projects. Our engineers add value through the application of experience and expertise, ensuring both effective project delivery and the sustainable management of this core natural resource.
Water Supply and Treatment
Supplying communities, businesses and public organisations with a reliable supply of potable water is vital to the development and sustainability of modern society. Engineering know-how is required to source sustainable water supplies, design networks to deliver vast volumes of water to population centres and to ensure the highest standards of water quality for consumption. ByrneLooby develop robust solutions for water supply that take account of various constraints including the integration of new and existing assets, demand variance and environmental factors.
Wastewater Collection and Treatment
Modern wastewater treatment plants are sophisticated engineering facilities requiring design expertise across a range of disciplines including civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and chemical engineering. Our engineers and project managers are tasked with developing integrated solutions to collect and treat sewage effluent, transforming this waste stream for safe disposal to river or coastal waters or for reuse as recycled sludge material. This requires close collaboration with municipal authorities, designers, contractors and environmental regulation agencies.
Surface Water Management
Surface water creates a range of conditions for which large scale engineering solutions must be developed. Many areas globally are now experiencing more intense rainfall events and higher sea levels due to the effects of climate change. Understanding the future impact of these and many other complex factors is a core capability of our water engineering team. Using our expertise to formulate detailed predictions for large catchment areas, our engineers can then progress to develop physical flood management solutions such as flood embankments and barriers, river training and coastal protection.
