About Water Group
 Water Group
Buro Happold's Water Group believes in 'cloud to coast' water management; that is, every part of the water cycle needs to be considered in connection with every other.
With the world's water resources coming increasingly under pressure, sensitive and sustainable planning is fundamental. In order to manage this scarce and precious resource the Buro Happold Water Group ensures that water is considered as a single, finite resource on every project we develop.
