Water management

A strong affinity for water - our expertise and enthusiasm not only produce innovative solutions in individual projects but also affect national and international water sector developments.


Our Strengths

In iC the water division is mainly handled by its subsidiary flussbau iC. Flussbau iC is an engineering company based in Austria (Villach, Vienna), specialised in hydraulic engineering /river engineering.

We provide service in every aspect of the field of hydraulic engineering, including studies of natural hazards, survey and monitoring, hydropower, morphology studies as well as construction supervision and works management.

The high degree of innovation in planning and project management is due to the constant further development of the measurement methods and numerical modelling methods used and to in-house research and research together with partners.

  • Applied research  & development


  • The water team uses cutting-edge IT and telecommunication facilities. We comply with an ISO 9001:2000 certified quality management system for all working processes.
  • We apply specialised planning, calculation and documentation software tools for process control of design measures and construction works. For this purpose we also utilise Internet-based content management systems and are experienced with databases.
  • For the production of technical designs we employ up-to-date CAD software. For the dimensioning of water supply, wastewater and rainwater networks we use hydraulic computer modelling programs.
  • We process spatial data with geographical information system software.
  • We utilise hydrological and hydrodynamic computer programs for different spatial and temporal scales.
