Where a site has experienced flooding related directly to surface water, we can carry out an assessment and hydraulic modelling of the site to further understand the cause of the flooding and develop a mitigation plan.
Within the hierarchy of flood mitigation, it is preferable to tackle the cause of the issue where possible, rather than symptoms.
We can engineer the preferred solution, produce detailed design drawings and specifications, and provide site support during construction.
Historically, in certain instances, the importance of effective surface water design has been overlooked. Surface water systems may have only been designed for the actual property, as opposed to the site runoff, leading to localised flooding. This can be a particular issue where doors are installed with a low threshold, or there are vast expanses of impermeable paving.
Our process to assess and mitigate the risk includes:
