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 includes all types of terrain as well as work above and below ground. Coupling this with our understanding of the strict regulatory oversight and environmental constraints associated with dam construction, our experience has positioned us as a valuable resource for our clients.
