At any one time more of our engineers are working on hydraulic steel structures than any other activity: it’s a core element of KGAL’s work and we have more years of experience in water control gate engineering design than any other UK engineering consultancy.
It’s a specialist engineering discipline; one that requires a unique combination of engineering expertise, familiarity and practice: for service, emergency and maintenance gates. Our engineering design experts have an unmatched depth of experience.
For flood defence, river control, hydropower, dams, navigable waterways and pumping stations we're a 'safe pair of hands': we’ve almost certainly been there, we've almost certainly done it.
So if you’re gathering advice, considering an appointment, or just looking of a second opinion, we’re the people who can help, and the people you can trust.
