A wide variety of technical services for dams


The construction of dams encompasses environmental impact assessments, geotechnical investigations and the provision of highly qualified staff responsible for monitoring quality during construction.

With a staff complement including several internationally recognised experts, Aurecon has been involved in over 300 dam safety inspections and related improvement work in several countries.

To achieve the most innovative and sensitive outcomes, Aurecon uses groundbreaking techniques such as providing sophisticated outlet structures which mimic natural flow regimes using height-selective intakes and large capacity outlet works. Our largest to date has a capacity of 200 m3/s. Spillway optimisation and the design of large capacity spillways is one of our specialities, with our largest being a labyrinth spillway with a capacity of 15 000m3/s.

These designs are supported by sophisticated physical and numerical hydraulic modelling.
