We pool all our knowledge in hydraulic construction engineering.

Hydraulic structures are invariably one-offs, which is why WTM Engineers bundles all its experience, creativity and cross-disciplinary expert knowledge to provide customized engineering solutions. To deliver robust and durable structures that are easy to operate and maintain. Our expertise covers planning, tendering and construction management of flood-protection facilities and structures relating to inland waterways, as well as for goods handling in ports and for power generation.

We offer sustainable solutions from a single source specifically for existing structures: Our services extend from assessing the status quo and structural recalculation to planning for modernization, retrofitting or replacement.

Our clients include waterway and shipping authorities, harbor and dyke construction agencies, local authorities and private developers in Germany and world-wide. We are the partners who support them through all project phases – starting with the very first idea through feasibility studies and designs, the plan approval process, and the detailed design to on-site construction supervision. In this context, we are pioneers in Building Information Modeling (BIM) and compile complex models for existing facilities, new structures, and digital terrain models covering a broad range of applications.
