Master plan and no-regret measures for urban drainage

Witteveen+Bos Panama was established in February 2020 to better serve the Latin American and Caribbean markets, areas where it has been active for decades. Panama was chosen because of its central location in the region.
The Latin American and Caribbean regions are facing major challenges in dealing with climate change, waste water treatment, environmental pollution and rapid urbanisation, and in securing energy supplies and providing adequate transport infrastructure. To help manage this, we are focusing on three areas: delta technology and ports, water technology and sanitation, and resilient cities. However, we also offer professional support for projects related to offshore wind energy and geothermal energy. We provide expertise on project phases including the preparation and supervision of site investigations, pre-feasibility studies, feasibility studies, pre-FEED, FEED, technical specifications, tender documents, tender guidance, and construction/dredging supervision. We are also specialized in cost estimations (CAPEX and OPEX), (social) cost-benefit analyses, and economic and technical feasibility studies.
The Panama office has extensive knowledge in design processes that are CO2-aware, sustainable, circular and climate-friendly, and which adhere to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Our professionals combine their state-of-the-art technical skills and expertise with sustainable design principles and nature-based solutions that benefit asset owners and clients as well as society as a whole. We provide added value in nature conservation, mangrove restoration and marine ecology, and we can provide guidance for environmental and social impact assessments.
ISO 9001 is the world's best known and most widely used certification scheme when it comes to quality management systems. ISO 27001 is the world-wide norm for information security.
We can provide support for projects in the Latin American and Caribbean regions in the following fields of expertise:
In recent years, many challenging projects have been carried out in Latin America in the field of delta technology and ports, such as a design for a the third set of locks (Panama); a design for a Flood Early Warning System for the Mamoré River (Bolivia); a technical feasibility study for Royal Port (Colombia); a feasibility study for the shipping bypass of Itaipu Dam (Paraguay/Brazil); the design of a maritime terminal in the port of Montevideo (Uruguay); and a stability analysis of large mine tailing dams (Brazil).
We can assist you with the following disciplines in delta technology and ports:
We have significant experience in the water technology and sanitation sector in Latin America, working on demanding projects such as the investigation of the water sector’s regionalisation (Colombia); the formulation of specific NRW action plans for several drinking water companies (Colombia); the analysis of solutions for the tannery industry in Bogota (Colombia); and waste analysis (Colombia).
We can assist you with the following disciplines in water technology and sanitation:
We have worked on various projects related to the field of resilient cities in Latin America, such as the development of a strategic drainage plan and the design of no-regret measures for urban drainage (Trinidad); the design of a new high-quality bicycle path in Bogota (Colombia); and a feasibility study for a new high-quality bicycle path in San Juan de Lurigancho, Lima (Peru).
We can assist you with the following disciplines in cities and urban areas:
