Welcome to 'Building with Nature' 

Building with Nature is a new design philosophy in hydraulic engineering. 
Natural elements such as wind, currents, flora and fauna are utilized in designing
a hydraulic engineering solution, thereby creating additional benefits for nature, recreation and the local economy.
