Protecting our most precious resource
Dams do more than just store water. At Stantec, we understand the crucial role they serve in our communities, from providing flood mitigation during times of heavy rains to supplying water in seasons of drought. Our specialists are skilled in every facet of dam delivery, from assessment, planning, design, through to construction.
From fill dams to roller-compacted concrete dams, our engineers and scientists strive to deliver a range of solutions such as conventional dams and hydroelectric dams. Our dam experience extends to fill, concrete, and roller-compacted concrete dams—that differ from concrete in a few ways, namely faster construction with simpler constructability. When it comes to concrete dams, we’ve delivered numerous new concrete dams designs of differing types, including gravity, arch, buttress and arch-gravity dams.
We’ve consistently led the industry in the design of earth and rockfill dams, including specialty designs incorporating asphaltic cores or concrete-faced structures. Our experience includes a full suite of regulatory compliance services, including Australian National Committee on Large Dams (ANCOLD) dam safety evaluations and potential failure mode analyses (PFMAs). Drawing on our multidisciplinary global experience, our consultants can design a solution tailored to your needs.
When natural disaster hits, you want to know you’re protectedFlooding can have devastating effects on our communities, as we’ve recently experienced across Australia. The 2022 floods caused people to lose their lives and tore through our cities destroying our homes and infrastructure. The total sum of the devastation is untold. One way to protect ourselves against such natural disasters is by designing robust flood mitigation strategies.
