We see the need for irrigation solutions as a requirement that extends beyond today and into the future.

Our engineers, scientists and planners can provide sustainable, cost-effective and innovative irrigation solutions that meet the needs of communities, industry and national policy and strategy.

GHD provides comprehensive, innovative and independent services to the irrigation industry — services that address the current challenges of water scarcity or over-supply, salinity, modernisation, efficiency and environmental water management. We also consider water infrastructure, systems managements and remodelling.

We’ll work hand in hand with you to balance the sometimes competing demands of agriculture, industry, community and ecosystems.
