Welcome to 'Building with Nature' 

Building with Nature shows how to utilize natural processes and provide opportunities for nature while realising hydraulic infrastructure. Design guidelines on how to make this happen in practice are available for everyone to use. These guidelines are based on the projects carried out  in the Building with Nature innovation programme. The work in the programme is carried out by the EcoShape consortium, that consists of private parties, government organisations and research institutes. 

NEWS
