Building healthy and sustainable environments

Safe and Efficient

Future generations face a 40% shortfall between water supply and demand. Alongside other experts, Wavin is working to deliver safe and clean water security through enhanced rainwater reuse, the digitalization of water management and more secure and durable piping.

Sanitation and Hygiene

Outdated sewer systems are overwhelmed by a triple whammy of urbanization, population growth and climate change. We are working towards a healthier future with long-lasting sanitation solutions that deliver greater capacity, fewer leaks, less clogging and better monitoring. 

Climate Resilient Cities

Smarter systems are needed to meet the five big challenges our cities face: floods, droughts, heat stress, ground water depletion and surface-water pollution. From roof to river, we are helping with connected water capture, attenuation, cleaning, reuse, and transportation solutions to make cities climate resilient. 

Building Performance

Constrained by time, cost, and product sourcing challenges, many of today’s buildings fail to deliver on their expected performance. Through improved digital modelling, we can help our partners predict time and resource needs throughout the building process and provide intelligent solutions for better urban living.
