Drainage, Storm Water Management and Flood Alleviation
Drainage, storm water and flooding are increasing problematic with climate change and the increased frequency of storms. This practice does not provide services for the alleviation of widespread flooding which frequently involve river management or sea defences. We provide services to individuals, businesses or organisations wishing to mitigate the effects of flooding, or prevent flooding affecting their properties. In providing these services we draw upon our extensive experience of the design of underground structures, water holding structures, behavior of water in numerous ground conditions and topography. We combine this with our knowledge of methods of preventing water from entering buildings from below, and the weak points that allow easy passage of water which may go unnoticed until the flood occurs.
We design attenuation systems to hold storm during a storm allowing it to be released slowly into the sewer system of soak into the ground when pressure on the sewers or the degree of saturation of ground has lessened.
