Ecological engineering

Ecological Engineering is the art of integrating the ecological processes in natural systems to achieve engineering solutions. Fourth Element applies the principles of Ecological Engineering for the management of storm water in the urban and mining sector.  We combine in-house expertise in hydrological and hydraulic modelling, aquatic ecology and environmental management to formulate ecologically sensitive designs for storm water management. These sustainable systems incorporate the typical engineering requirements for storm water management by also enhancing the recreational and habitat requirements of natural water bodies.
