cbec specializes in eco engineering for the water resources industry. We focus on floodplain and channel management, fluvial and tidal wetland rehabilitation, and green urban stormwater.
cbec’s mission is to develop innovative, multi-benefit solutions in water resources engineering that improve the health of the natural environment while also meeting the needs of humanity.
cbec has a diverse range of staff highly experienced in these areas, with innovative and holistic approaches to solving problems. We currently have eight professional Civil Engineers, three staff trained to PhD level and twelve staff trained to Masters level.
our eco engineering service areas
studying, enhancing, and protecting our water-dependent ecosystems
characterizing basin processes, understanding impacts, and developing rehabilitation opportunities
anticipating and mitigating for changing hydrology
understanding the natural and beneficial functions of floodplains to manage flood risk where human and natural systems intersect
sustainable stormwater management for our urban areas
sharing what we know for the benefit of others
communicating complex problems and developing multi-objective solutions by facilitating collaborative environments
cbec use Drones (or Unmanned Aerial Systems – UASs) and remote controlled (RC) boats to enhance and improve efficiency for project data collection.
assessing the physical impacts of fire on watershed hydrology to identify areas of high risk and make recommendations for long term ecological rehabilitation
a suite of eco-hydraulic modeling tools developed to identify and evaluate physical opportunities for multi- benefit floodplain rehabilitation
