We are specialist consultants to the water industry; since our foundation we have advised on the design, testing and compliance of water products and water fittings including taps, valves and water systems.

During the last 14 years RAH Consultancy has been heavily involved in major engineering projects such as the overseeing and inspection of the entire water system of the South Bank Tower in London. As a water industry expert we have provided consultancy for leading law firms such as Slater & Gordon, including receiving instructions in several important cases regarding legionellosis.
