  • Security – All our work is covered by a £5 million indemnity insurance policy

Depending on your requirements, the flood risk assessment can consist of one or more of the following:

  • Level 1 – Screening of the development site to assess the necessity for a Flood Risk Assessment
  • Level 2 – A qualitative scoping assessment of flood risks to the site
  • Level  3 – A detailed quantitative assessment of flood risks to the site, which may include hydrological and hydraulic modelling
  • Outline recommendations for Surface Water Mangement (e.g. SuDS) including run-off rates and volumes.

The FRA will be proportionate to the degree of flood risk and the scale and nature of the development.

Our Flood Risk Assessments will provide you with the necessary information on:

  • The current flood risks at the site
  • How your proposed development may affect flood risk in the local area
  • Measures you can take to mitigate against flood risk as part of the development
  • Available surface water drainage (SUDs) management options for the site.
