Sustainable solutions for societal challenges

Our clients face major challenges as they set about building safe, liveable and accessible cities with adequate clean water and sustainable energy provision. They want to create pleasant residential and business environments, in which companies can manufacture products in a sustainable manner. We advise and help them to make the right choices.

Clients and markets

Around the world, both public- and private-sector clients call on Witteveen+Bos to help resolve the challenges they face. We provide advice to contractors, engineering and architectural firms, energy and water companies, railway and port authorities, and industry. In the public sector, we work for national governments, water boards, and provincial and local authorities. Our activities cover the entire chain, from policy-making and design to contracting and supervising construction. Witteveen+Bos aims to establish long-term relationships with her clients that enables us to meet their needs and expectations as effectively as possible while delivering maximum added value.

Executing projects on water, infrastructure, environment and construction is our core process. Our recommendations and designs focus mainly on four areas of expertise.

Adding value through projects

Every year, we work on more than 4,000 projects. In our projects and design assignments, our seven sustainable design principles help us to truly embed sustainability in projects. The sustainable design principles are helpful in tackling the impact of climate change, efficient and sustainable use of resources, protecting the environment and biodiversity, as well as the promotion of integrated chain management and (public) participation. In this way, we can maximise both the impact of our solutions and our contribution to the themes that are relevant for us.

Our projects

Integrated approach

Complex issues require an integrated project approach. Together with the parties involved, each one with their own disciplines, we set about finding the best solution to increase our joint impact. Besides technical skills, Witteveen+Bos possesses expertise in construction costs and financing, contracting and calls for tenders, process supervision, project and contract management, legal affairs and organisational issues.


In principle, our projects form the framework for innovation and knowledge development. New solutions often require ‘launching customers’ – clients with guts. We frequently make intelligent use of the rapid developments in digital technologies such as Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Building Information Modelling and DNA techniques. To encourage entrepreneurship even more, we introduced our Plus+ Innovation programme in 2017. This programme facilitates employees in making their innovation dreams come true, develop new products and collaborate on solutions for smart cities, smart deltas, smart cycles and smart infrastructure.
