CASE STUDIES

We have designed and built numerous projects, large and small, across a diverse ecosystem often in Special Areas of Conservation (SAC), Special Protection Areas (SPA) and Natural Heritage Areas (NHAs). You can learn more about our experience from a selection of completed projects on our case studies page.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Rivus designed and installed an innovative nature-based solution that secured the Dublin-Cork gas pipeline, restored the river and enhanced biodiversity. This is exactly the kind of multifunctional intervention we need for legacy problems in sensitive habitats.”

WHY WORK WITH US?

Rivus is unique in Ireland in that we take an ecosystem approach to environmental engineering. Traditional hard engineering solutions can be expensive, inappropriate and unfeasible in many
environments including protected river systems, areas of special conservation or biodiversity.We use innovative, creative design and natural materials to work with nature rather than against it. 

 

Our multifunctional nature-based solutions are designed to respond to urgent environmental challenges, while ensuring the long-term delivery of ecosystem services such as flood mitigation, carbon sequestration, soil protection, water and air purification, and enhanced biodiversity. 

 

We believe that truly sustainable solutions are long-term by definition, so our projects are designed with resilience at their core: with proper maintenance, our interventions can stand the test of time for generations to come.
