Flood Risk and Drainage - Flood Alleviation and Mitigation


Either because of their nature or location, some projects are not completely risk-free. As a result, our multi-skilled team of hydrologists, flood risk consultants and civil engineers deliver significant flood risk betterment to development areas and local communities.

Our work involves creating dedicated and practical drainage mitigation solutions to relieve sites from flooding or in line with BS EN 8533 a detailed strategy for development finished levels to route exceedance flows away from buildings without increasing flood risk elsewhere. This step is often supported by our Geomatics team, who undertake site-specific topographical surveys of pre-development conditions to support our conclusions. 
Throughout the planning process, our flood risk consultants ensure that Local Risk Management Authorities are onboard, thus supporting the agreement of a strategy in the early stages of the process.
