The Public Health Engineers Role

As public health engineers our challenges are varied, as an engineering discipline in its most basic form, we design water supply and drainage systems.  

Good Health


Water and drainage systems are essential to good health,  they help buildings function better for their occupants, owners and for the wider environment.

The design of sustainable drainage systems helps save water and the energy associated with its use.


From sustainable drainage systems to water reuse and attenuation we advise and offer guidance to clients to make better choices for their water usage.
