ARCADIS N.V.: Nassau County selects ARCADIS for hurricane recovery wastewater
                              program management

ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the leading pure play global engineering and
consultancy firm, announced today the Nassau County (New Jersey) Department of
Public Works has selected a Joint Venture of ARCADIS and Hazen and Sawyer,
P.C. to provide program management services to stabilize, design and rebuild
its wastewater collection and treatment systems, which received unprecedented
damage and flooding during Superstorm Sandy in October, 2012. The $2 billion
dollar program includes already completed emergency response and repair work,
which took place immediately after the storm. Expected gross revenues for
ARCADIS related to this contract amount to approximately €30 million.

Already on site when the storm hit, ARCADIS and its JV partner worked with the
recovery and repair team non-stop in the six weeks following the storm to
assess damage to major electrical systems, pumping facilities and processes
which were flooded and partially submerged with salt water. By December 14,
the team had met all of its milestones for the emergency actions and had
successfully restored the Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant to full secondary
treatment capacity.

For the next three years, ARCADIS and its JV partner will provide consulting,
preliminary design, pre-construction, construction and post-construction
services to mitigate the effects of future storms across 5 waste water
treatment plants and over 30 pump stations within the Nassau Wastewater
system. This includes extreme weather hardening designed to endure a storm
event with a 500-year return period.

According to ARCADIS Global Business Line Director Water, Eleanor Allen,
"ARCADIS is leveraging its unparalleled expertise in resiliency and wastewater
system design to provide Nassau County with a system that exceeds expectations
for environmental compliance, efficiency and the ability to weather future
storms. The new design integrates flood protection with multiple lines of
defense to protect the plant from extreme weather events."
