Flood Defences and Flood Protection
Witteveen+Bos advises on safety assessments and designs for flood defences, conducts water safety analyses and contributes to policy development, and performs planning studies for dike reinforcement and river widening projects.
We are involved in research programmes focusing on failure mechanisms of flood defences (POV, IJKDijk) and contribute to the development of methods and tools for the assessment or primate flood defences (WBI 2017). We tackle issues by combining state-of-the art technology with climate-resilient solutions and life cycle designs, while devoting due attention to the project environment and administrative decision-making processes.
