Dam & Hydro

Throughout our history, we have constructed dozens of the world’s most sophisticated dam projects, including earth fill and concrete structures. Atkinson’s experience working in challenging environments – above and below ground, in all types of terrain – coupled with our understanding of the strict regulatory oversight and environmental constraints associated with dam construction, has positioned us as a valuable resource for our clients.
