CDR International B.V. (CDR), founded in 2012, is an independent medium-sized Engineering Consultancy firm in the Water Sector, operating globally and having its roots in the Netherlands.
CDR is an acronym for Coasts, Deltas and Rivers and active in the field of the following disciplines:

  • Coastal Protection and Marine Structures
  • Port Master Planning and Inland Waterway Transport
  • Dredging, Reclamation and Land Development
  • Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation
  • Flood Risk and Urban Water Management

Our professional services cover the range from project inception development, climate change vulnerability and adaptation studies, (bankable) feasibility studies, whole project life inputs from conceptual to detailed design and value engineering through to construction supervision and added-value advice during implementation.

We offer our services to the private and public sector, including the International Financial Institutions.
The medium-sized team consists of an enthusiastic and committed group of junior, medior and senior experts originating from a wide range of world-renowned companies in the coastal, maritime, water management, ports and environmental sectors.
We frequently operate in conjunction with a wide range of strategic partners and a cloud of senior consultants offering specialist services.
This diverse setting allows CDR to be flexible, to be able to directly anticipate our customers’ needs, to offer high quality and expertise while at the same time the lines are short, communication efficient and prices competitive.
Because part of the team has ample experience on-site, we are capable to merge theoretical and practical aspects into our deliverables and technical studies.
We endeavour to distinguish ourselves by taking into consideration the implement-ability of our design solutions, based on having expert knowledge of the local environmental conditions and construction resources present within the setting of all our projects.

CDR International B.V. is based in the Netherlands and is affiliated with independent CDR offices in Africa, delivering services to regional markets.
