Water Features

In recent years CBA have specialized in the restoration or creation of water features. This includes the restoration of lakes in historic parkland setting usually through desilting or the creation of new features using traditional puddled clay techniques or artificial lining such as bentomat. Occasionally we are asked to design formal pools in garden settings. We work closely with hyrdologists at Penny Anderson Associates and expert contractors Alaska Environmental Contracting.
