The diversity of whitewater parks and playwave zones constantly supplies NHC with engineering challenges and creative inspiration. As demand for our recreational hydraulics expertise began to grow in the early part of the 2000s, we have had the opportunity to work on a wide range of structures, hydraulic conditions, and project objectives for international government agencies, private industry firms, general consulting engineers, and recreational organizations across the globe.
Past examples of our projects include:
- Structure Modification (Calgary, Canada)
Modeling, design, construction supervision, and post-construction evaluations for Bow River Weir Project in Calgary, the world’s largest whitewater park.
- Urban Revitalization (Kongsberg, Norway)
Pre-feasibility and design feasibility studies to develop a whitewater park in downtown Kongsberg; detailed design through physical modeling.
- Recreation at Hydropower Projects
Evaluating the potential for maintaining or providing new recreation uses at many hydroelectric generating sites and facilities.
- Design Assistance
Many projects that combine habitat restoration with flood management, recreation, channel stabilization, infrastructure development, and other objectives.
