Aquatic Engineering, Ecology & Landscaping Case Studies
The case studies presented here show the broad level of disciplines delivered by AGA on behalf of its clients. We operate as main CDM contractors in our own right taking on the management of complete projects, as well as being happy to complete smaller projects as a sub-contractor and, of course, working directly with our many private clients.

Aquatic Engineering – Building A Natural Swimming Pool
The client proposed the construction of a leisure pond on his greenfield site.

AGA initially made a site visit to survey the silt and access and haulage routes as well as the silt disposal options available. The opportunity to identify hazards, accessibility and potential impacts of the work on the local environment were also considered.
